    The Department of Bioinformatics & Computational Biology at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center is seeking candidates for available faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level (rank commensurate with experience). The department invites applications from outstanding researchers in bioinformatics, biostatistics, or computational biology with a focus on questions of importance in cancer research.

    One of the available positions will be for an individual with interest and experience in sequence analysis. Candidates should possess strong academic credentials and an interest in multidisciplinary collaborative research. A Ph.D. or M.D. degree is required.


    The Department of Bioinformatics & Computational Biology presently includes 14 faculty members. M. D. Anderson is strongly committed to growth of the Department in view of the increasingly important roles in biomedical research played by computational and analytic approaches. Areas of active research among current faculty include bioinformatics, biostatistics, systems biology, high performance computing, knowledge engineering, and mathematical modeling of biological systems. Faculty members also participate in didactic and/or supervisory teaching of graduate students.

    The Department of Bioinformatics & Computational Biology is closely allied with the Department of Biostatistics within the Division of Quantitative Sciences. Support personnel at the divisional level include excellent teams of statistical analysts, programmers, and information technologists.
