Open Rank Faculty (Assistant/Associate/Full Professors) - Genomics and Human Genetics
Duke University

Company Information: Duke University seeks up to three exceptional, collaborative, and creative scientists who are focused on advancing genomic medicine to join its faculty in tenure/tenure-track positions. The Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics (B&B) at Duke University is home to a faculty of more than 50 quantitative researchers who dedicate their time to a combination of methodologic research, teaching, and collaboration. Departmental faculty also participate as members of Duke centers and institutes, including the Center for Genomic and Computational Biology (GCB) and the Center for Statistical Genetics and Genomics (StatGen).

The unique, collaborative, multi-disciplinary structure of the genetics/genomics-related centers at Duke optimizes opportunities for partnerships by building on the research interests of various disciplines spanning the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences, School of Medicine and Pratt School of Engineering. These centers unite genetic/genomic-oriented scientists with various perspectives and break down traditional barriers in order to address critical questions and solve key problems. These centers also lead or contribute to numerous graduate, masters-level and undergraduate research programs, which also further supports efforts to train the next generation of genomic scientists. Duke University is located in Durham, North Carolina (NC), USA
