Several faculty searches at Duke


Duke University seeks up to seven exceptional, collaborative, and creative scientists to join its faculty in tenured/tenure-track positions.  We invite applications from researchers with an outstanding track record in developing and applying statistical, computational, or experimental approaches to cutting-edge problems in genomics and human genetics. Candidates should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in a quantitative or experimental discipline.  We are particularly interested in scientists working in evolutionary/population genomics, functional genomics, genome technology development, medical genetics, and statistical/computational genomics. We strongly encourage applications from scientists with a demonstrated interest in collaborative research. Successful candidates will synergize with existing strengths at Duke in medicine, engineering, environmental sciences, and basic sciences.  As such, successful candidates may have their academic home in any suitable department within the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, Environment, and Art & Sciences (including departments not traditionally associated with genomics and human genetics such as Mathematics, Physics, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering). Secondary appointments, joint appointments, or affiliations may be arranged in other departments, schools, and centers as appropriate. The collaborative nature of these positions will provide successful candidates with access to exceptional resources, including substantial cluster computing infrastructure, strong core facilities, a diverse set of large biomedical datasets, and multidisciplinary partnerships. Interested applicants https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__academicjobsonline.org_ajo_jobs_8166&d=CwIGaQ&c=imBPVzF25OnBgGmVOlcsiEgHoG1i6YHLR0Sj_gZ4adc&r=5DZPEw6AD3P4y2oOlIPGZQ&m=i5AwQhF-rHA7k52ljIufdyiNvY6KUYimoriipQOg1VM&s=L2QZUVv_DRaxGXGxtQ4S4mSmhINq_cGr3kiDoF3mQKc&e= . Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2016.


The Department of Evolutionary Anthropology at Duke University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level to begin in July or August, 2017. Candidates with specialties in any area of evolutionary anthropology are invited to apply. Consideration will be given to applicants in areas of our current strength (e.g., primate behavioral ecology and/or cognition, evolutionary endocrinology and physiology, paleontology, and functional anatomy) but also to those studying any aspect of human biological variation, genetics and genomics, growth and development, demography, and human adaptation to climate or disease. The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. and demonstrate the potential to build an outstanding, externally funded research program. In addition, they must contribute to teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and fortify the department’s interdisciplinary links to other units in the University. To apply, please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, three representative reprints and the contact information for three potential referees to our job posting at Academic Jobs Online:https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__academicjobsonline.org_ajo_jobs_7666&d=CwIGaQ&c=imBPVzF25OnBgGmVOlcsiEgHoG1i6YHLR0Sj_gZ4adc&r=5DZPEw6AD3P4y2oOlIPGZQ&m=i5AwQhF-rHA7k52ljIufdyiNvY6KUYimoriipQOg1VM&s=-UfBij4oZLexzFvmg2qEdDvf_Fnl88niAtHjFyadq5M&e= . Applications received by November 1, 2016 will be guaranteed consideration.
