The Department of Experimental and Health Sciences (DCEXS) of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) aims to fill two Tenure-Track Group Leader positions in the fields of Computational Biology and Biological Chemistry. We encourage applications from outstanding scientists working in any area within these two fields. These include, but are not limited to, in the case of computational biology: biological image analysis, single-cell transcriptomics data analysis, multi-omics data integration, mathematical modeling of biological processes, biostatistics and computational systems biology, among others. In the case of biological chemistry: peptide chemistry (including synthesis of bioactive compounds and vaccines), proteomics, de novo protein design, optochemistry and molecular modeling.
Successful candidates will be highly accomplished scientists with a PhD in a relevant field and a strong capacity for interdisciplinary research. The future group leaders will be expected to attract research funds, supervise doctoral theses, and actively engage in teaching computational biology and biological chemistry courses, respectively, in our undergraduate and graduate programs. Selected applicants will be expected to collaborate with the other research groups of the department in scientific projects of common interest. Additionally, the Computational Biology Group Leader will act as scientific advisor of the department’s Core Facility of Scientific Computing (SIT).
- Tenure track position that can be consolidated to a permanent faculty position depending on external peer-review.
- Startup package covering the salary of a PhD student or technician, consumables, laboratory/computing equipment, and access to our scientific facilities.
- Office/Lab space for 5-7 people.
- Envisaged start date: from September 2022 onwards.
