The Molecular Cell Biology unit and Quantitative and Systems Biology graduate group at UC Merced invite applications for an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) position from exceptional candidates in the field of Molecular Systems Biology. We seek experimental biologists who make technically innovative, theory-driven, high-dimensional measurements of whole cells and subcellular systems to explain fundamental biological processes. Theoretical biologists undertaking simulations at such scales are also invited to apply. Research areas of interest include macromolecular interaction networks, kinetic networks, regulatory networks, and multiplex single-molecule analysis. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Molecular Systems Biology or allied field, a record of impact on the field of Molecular Systems Biology, and potential to maintain an extramurally-funded research program. The candidate will be expected to teach undergraduate and/or specialized graduate courses in quantitative and systems biology. For more information or to apply: http://jobs.ucmerced.edu/n/academic/position.jsf?positionId=4949. Fullest consideration will be given to applications received by December 15th. AA/EOE.
