Carnegie Mellon University — Tenure-Track Cluster Hires in Microbiomes and Microbial Systems

Carnegie Mellon is in the midst of an exciting growth phase in the area of microbial science and engineering. The Departments of Biological Sciences, Computational Biology, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Chemical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University seek multiple tenure-track faculty candidates using experimental and/or computational approaches to investigate or engineer microbial systems. Areas of interest include molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis, microbial ecology of complex or environmental systems, and biomedical applications. Candidates using one or more of microfluidics, metagenomics/multiomics, quantitative imaging, single cell approaches, and/or computational and theoretical modeling are of particular interest. CMU fosters transdisciplinary collaborative approaches to compelling societal challenges and is looking for candidates who would benefit from and contribute to an environment that fosters campus-wide multi-departmental collaborative research projects. Faculty have access to facilities that include a state-of-the-art animal facility, neuroimaging and biological microscopy centers, high-performance computing clusters, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center. We welcome candidates in all research areas and at all ranks. Appointments across multiple departments, which are a strongly supported part of the culture at Carnegie Mellon, are possible when appropriate. Carnegie Mellon offers highly competitive salaries and start-up packages in an attractive urban environment.

A Ph.D. or M.D. degree, along with postdoctoral research experience, is required.
