Assistant Professor Positions Available at Princeton University

The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level.  We are seeking outstanding scientists with strong interest and experience in quantitative, systems-level approaches to understanding any area in modern experimental biology.  Examples include, but are not restricted to, single-molecule live-cell imaging, whole-genome analysis of chromosome topology, high-throughput experimental analysis of aging, metabolomics, and animal development. We seek individuals who will extend and complement our existing strengths in experimental genomics and other –omics approaches, biological chemistry, and biophysics. A strong record of experimental work and quantitative analysis is essential.

The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, housed in the Carl Icahn Laboratory at Princeton University, was established to innovate in research and teaching at the interface of modern biology and the more quantitative sciences.  The Institute provides significant support to its faculty through heavy investment in state-of-the-art research infrastructure, an NIH-funded graduate training program, and a high level of administrative support.

Faculty positions are jointly appointed in one of the following academic departments at Princeton: Physics, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Chemical and Biological Engineering, or Computer Science. These joint faculty positions offer significant benefits in terms of infrastructure, research funds, and collaborative opportunities, as well as an opportunity to interact with unusually able and interdisciplinary students. The successful candidate will have research laboratories at the Institute, and teaching responsibilities (both graduate and undergraduate) will be shared between the Institute and the home department.
