28th November 2018 : Junior faculty position in Theoretical Biological Physics at Northeastern University

Dear Colleagues,

This email is to let you know of an ongoing search to fill a junior
faculty position in Theoretical Biological Physics at Northeastern
University. The position is to be hosted in the Physics or
Bioengineering Department.

We would appreciate it if you could please forward this email to
potential candidates.

The position description is appended below and interested candidates
should apply online at:


Assistant Professor – Physics/Bioengineering – Northeastern University

The Departments of Physics and Bioengineering at Northeastern University
invite applications for an Assistant Professor level position in
Theoretical Biological Physics to begin Fall 2019. This search focuses
on the application of theoretical and computational methods to the
understanding of living systems. Specific subareas to be considered
include (but are not limited to): systems biology modeling; cellular and
multicellular mechanics; genome structure and its functional
consequences; morphogenesis and developmental biology; computation by
biological networks including the dynamics of immunity and the neural
system; and evolutionary/ecological processes. We seek individuals who
can develop and apply innovative approaches to unravel unsolved
mysteries of the living state both at the single cell and multicellular
scales and who can thereby develop successful strategies to perturb that
state for biomedical or biotechnological purposes. The individual hired
for this position will become a member of whichever of these two
departments is deemed most appropriate and will interact with the strong
research groups in this area already present at Northeastern and its
neighboring institutions.


Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in Physics, Bioengineering or a
closely related field prior to the start date. Candidates must have at
least one-year postdoctoral experience in an appropriate area of
theoretical biological physics. Individuals who already have
tenure-track faculty positions may apply and be considered for an
advanced assistant professor level slot.

Best regards,
