The GCDB Program within the Biology Department at Indiana University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level with a research emphasis in functional genomics. This position is part of the Indiana University Precision Health Initiative Grand Challenge https://grandchallenges.iu.edu/precision-health/index.html. We are interested in candidates whose research uses high-throughput genomic methods to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying either cancer or neurodegenerative disorders. We are seeking individuals that will complement and/or extend our existing strengths in chromatin structure, DNA replication and repair, cell cycle regulation, cancer biology, and neural development. Candidates working on model organisms as well as human cell lines and/or primary samples are encouraged to apply.
Successful candidates will have full access to state-of-the-art facilities for genomics and bioinformatics, light and electron microscopy, flow cytometry, structural biology, protein analysis, and molecular biology. IU researchers have many opportunities for collaboration, including the IU Simon Cancer Center (http://cancer.iu.edu) and the IU Program in Neuroscience (https://neuroscience.indiana.edu/index.html). Our faculty members are expected to establish and maintain a vigorous well-funded research program and to participate in both undergraduate and graduate education.

Bloomington is a family-friendly city with urban amenities, including theatre productions, live music, art exhibits, and a wide-range of culinary options, while still being located in the hilly, forested landscape of south-central Indiana (http://www.visitbloomington.com/).
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree and have relevant postdoctoral experience with a strong record of research accomplishments.
