Faculty Position in Comparative Biomedical Genomics

The Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences at Texas A&M University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of comparative genomics at the Assistant or Associate Professor level.  We seek energetic individuals applying innovative comparative, population-based genomic approaches to better understand the genetic bases and environmental components of complex traits, susceptibility to disease conditions, and other fundamental processes in biology. Applicants with an outstanding record of achievement, a research program using established or emerging vertebrate model organisms, and strong computational skills are of particular interest.

The successful candidate must have a doctoral degree and relevant post-doctoral experience, and will be expected to develop and sustain a vigorous extramurally funded research program, train graduate students, and teach within the Biomedical Sciences program. Opportunities exist to interact collaboratively with a large and expanding genomics and life science faculty within the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences and across the broader University community through the Whole Systems Genomics Initiative (genomics.tamu.edu), One Health Initiative (onehealth.tamu.edu), and several interdisciplinary, degree-granting faculties and research programs (e.g., Genetics, Neuroscience, Reproduction, Toxicology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology). Salary and start-up packages will be competitive and commensurate with level of accomplishment. Modern laboratory and office space will be provided within the Veterinary Medical Research Complex, as will access to modern core facilities for next-generation sequencing (txgen.tamu.edu) and significant computational resources on campus.

Review of applications will begin November 1 2014, and continue until the position is filled. Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, statement of research and teaching interests, three relevant reprints, and the names of three potential references to: Genomics Search Committee, Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences, College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, VMA Bldg. Rm. 107, College Station, TX 77843-4458 or by email (preferred): dhernandez@cvm.tamu.edu
