Tenure track job opening in the Biology Department at University of Richmond

Posted: 2017-07-27

"Big data" means different things to different people. What it means to us is that we're interested in someone who makes use of computational approaches to understand biological problems. There are a lot of biological problems out there, a lot of large data sets, and a lot of ways to approach making sense of them. We're hoping to find someone who is interested in bringing that flavor of science to a department that cares deeply about undergraduate education, and undergraduate-driven research. We are well supported, and have great colleagues in other departments. This is an environment where you can "do" science and "teach" science at the same time. The sort of candidate I'm imagining is someone who has put some effort into taking interdisciplinary approaches to their science (like you...
