Assistant Professor, Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, South Dakota School of Mines & Technology (posted March 24, 2016)

The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology invites applications for a 9-month tenure-track faculty position in Nanoscience and Nanoengineering at the Assistant Professor level in the area of computational nanoscience, imaging informatics and bio-informatics. The position will be the third new faculty position in Nanoscience at South Dakota Mines in support of a newly-formed statewide research center: The Biochemical Spatiotemporal NeTwork Resource (BioSNTR). BioSNTR is focused on advanced fluorescence and optical imaging methods to leverage bioinformatics towards the understanding of signaling networks and their regulation in living systems. BioSNTR is a collaboration between research university partners South Dakota State University, the University of South Dakota, and South Dakota Mines, with industrial partners at Sanford Research. As a member of BioSNTR, the successful candidate will be provided a competitive salary and start-up package, and access to center staff and shared resources, including high performance computing infrastructure. The selected candidate will be expected to contribute to the South Dakota Mines Nanoscience and Nanoengineering PhD program by developing a robust extramurally funded research program, through teaching and development of graduate courses relevant to Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, and through mentoring and advising of PhD students, as well as building strong research teams within BioSNTR. Specific interests for this position are candidates who could contribute to the imaging informatics and analysis of high volume microscopy data generated by our newly constructed lattice light sheet microscope, correlative atomic force microscopy (AFM) and fluorescence, multiphoton, and high content imaging microscopy systems, and connect this data with computational biology and next generation sequencing. Individuals whose research emphasis can complement on-going efforts in biophotonics, super-resolution imaging methods, and the combination of AFM and fluorescence microscopy for correlative imaging of bio-systems are particularly encouraged to apply.

Applicants must possess a PhD in a science or engineering discipline closely aligned with Nanoscience and Nanoengineering and/or one of the above-mentioned research emphases. The successful candidate will become a faculty member in an interdisciplinary doctoral program in Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, with an anticipated start date of August 22, 2016. Email Steve.Smith@sdsmt.edu for further information regarding this position.

Established in 1885, the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology is a science and engineering research university located in Rapid City, South Dakota. South Dakota Mines is a public university offering bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in engineering and science. Known for our academic rigor, we maintain a 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio. Our students benefit from immersive learning experiences including undergraduate research, co-ops/internships, and numerous nationally competitive engineering teams. Our graduates have a 98% placement rate and an average starting salary of over $63,000. Our Research Programs are concentrated in four areas: energy and environment; materials and manufacturing; STEM education; and underground science. South Dakota Mines is a growing university that enrolls over 2,800 students from 47 states and 46 countries.

Rapid City is in the Rushmore Region of South Dakota. The state's second largest city (with an urban population of 72,638 and metropolitan population of 141,431) is nestled at the foot of the beautiful Black Hills.

Postdoctoral position in evolutionary systems biology. Québec, Canada. (posted Feb 23, 2016)

Postdoctoral position in evolutionary genomics and systems biology in the Landry Laboratory

A postdoctoral position is available in the Landry Laboratory at Université Laval in Québec City under the Canada Research Chair in Evolutionary Cell and Systems Biology. The PDF will work on a project at the interface of genomics, cell biology and evolution to investigate the mechanisms of evolution of gene and protein networks. The specific project will be developed with the selected candidate. The selected candidate will combine experimental evolution, high-throughput screening and bioinformatics, and the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as experimental model system. The candidate is expected to have a PhD in biology or a related discipline, and a strong background in molecular and cell biology with at least basic skills in bioinformatics and statistics (R, Python or Perl). The candidate should have strong leadership skills, motivation and creativity and be able to work in a team of collaborators. The Landry lab is located at the Institut de Biologie Intégrative et des Systèmes (IBIS) of Université Laval and is part of the Quebec Network for Research on Protein Function, Engineering, and Applications (PROTEO). IBIS and PROTEO offer very stimulating training environment and cutting edge technologies in genomics and proteomics. The Landry lab is an international team of 15 students, PDFs and research associates from different backgrounds (microbiology, biology, bioinformatics, biochemistry) addressing questions in evolutionary cell and systems biology.

The application package (1 single PDF file) should include a motivation letter demonstrating the interest of the candidate for the field and his/her ability to perform this type of research, a short project proposal (half a page), reprints of the candidate’s most important contributions, a CV and the contact information of three people who can provide letters of reference. The file should be sent to landrylaboratory@gmail.com

Starting date could be as early as June 2016. The competition will remain open until a candidate is selected. For recent publications from the Landry lab, please visit: http://landrylab.ibis.ulaval.ca/

Postdoctoral position in Cell Biology and Genetics, Northern Kentucky University (posted May 7, 2015)
