Princeton University seeks applications for an assistant, associate or full professor to contribute to a major new initiative at the interface between the physical and computational sciences and disease biology, with a particular focus on cancer and metabolism (Ludwig Princeton Branch). Candidate selected will be appointed to a tenured or tenure-track position in an academic department at Princeton appropriate for the candidate’s area of specialization, and will also hold a corresponding membership in the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research.
Responsibilities include teaching, service (both in accordance with the standards for the academic department in which the candidate is appointed) and research, including operation of a vibrant research group to benefit from both Princeton University and Ludwig Princeton Branch funding (with expectations to compete also for external funds). Candidates are expected to devote a meaningful portion of their research effort to work that bridges between a hard science, computer science, or engineering discipline and an area of biology of relevance to the Ludwig Princeton Branch, such as cancer, metabolism, immunology, or the microbiome. Applicants are expected to hold a PhD or MD, optionally with relevant additional research experience (industrial, postdoctoral, or as a faculty member), and a strong track record of research accomplishments. We value building a culturally diverse intellectual community; women and members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants should submit a description of research interests (typically 2 – 3 pages), curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and contact information for three referees online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/26805. For fullest consideration, please apply by September 1, 2022. Late applications may be reviewed up to December 1, 2022.
