Opportunity: Director of the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics @ Indiana University School of Medicine -- Indianapolis, IN (US)
Submitted by Britt Booram; posted on Thursday, October 03, 2013
Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM) is seeking a visionary leader and dynamic team-builder to foster collaborative research with state-wide, state-supported partners in academia and industry. The Director of the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CCBB) will act as the champion for collaborative team science across the continuum of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Medical Informatics.

The CCBB Director will drive unprecedented partnerships in the State of Indiana via the NIH-funded Clinical Translational Science Institute (CTSI). The Indiana CTSI is a partnership between the three research-intensive universities in Indiana: Indiana University, Purdue University, and University of Notre Dame. Opportunities for innovation and interaction will increase between these research universities, the State of Indiana, and local life sciences companies (e.g. BioCrossroads, Eli Lilly and Company, Dow AgroSciences LLC, Cook Group, Inc., and Roche Diagnostics) with the recent launch of the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute (IBRI).

The CCBB Director is expected to strategically develop and lead the bioinformatics component of the Indiana CTSI and IBRI.

The CCBB is home to 12 faculty from the Schools of Informatics and Medicine. IUSM is home to a nationally-recognized computer infrastructure with access to the neighboring Indiana Health Information Exchange, the largest in the United States. IUSM is committed to providing collaboration and support for the CCBB.

Candidates for the Director of the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics should possess demonstrated leadership skills, a distinguished research and funding record, and MD and/or PhD. This position includes an appointment as a full-time faculty at a rank commensurate with experience. The recruitment package will be commensurate with the outstanding opportunity this represents. The director will have faculty positions available for recruiting to advance the center's initiatives.

Interested candidates should send curricula vitae to search committee co-chairs Drs. Randy Brutkiewicz and Harikrishna Nakshatri by e-mail to iusmhire[at] using "Director, Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics" as the subject of the message. The priority deadline for this search is Monday, November 25, 2013. The search and screen committee will begin reviewing applications as they are received and applications will be considered until an appointment is made.

Indiana University is an equal opportunity employer committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.
