Dear Dr. Eisen,
We are writing to enlist your assistance in identifying talented candidates for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. We are seeking to fill this position with a creative individual in the area of Computational Genomics.
Our hope is that this individual will interact synergistically with existing department strengths as well as those in other departments at Cornell including Biological Statistics and Computational Biology (BSCB). We envision that the ideal candidate will develop innovative computational genomics methods to solve novel problems in genome biology. An advertisement, which is attached, will appear in the September 19, 2014 issue of Science and more information is available at http://mbg.cornell.edu/jobs
This is a very exciting time at Cornell as the University has specifically targeted computational biology for expansion, and is making a concerted investment in interdisciplinary studies that bridge existing strengths in the University.
The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics (www.mbg.cornell.edu ) includes a highly interactive faculty with research programs in genetics, molecular biology, comparative and population genomics, cell biology, developmental biology, biochemistry and structural biology. Excellent students are attracted to graduate programs in Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology (BMCB), Genetics, Genomics and Development (GG&D), Computational Biology (CB), and Biophysics.
Please bring this great opportunity to the attention of outstanding junior scientists in your department. It would help us enormously if you could post the attached advertisement. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at barbash.
Daniel Barbash, Ph.D.
Chair, Computational Genomics Search Committee
