    Opportunity: Research Assistant Professor, NTT -- Precision Medicine and Bioinformatics -- Center for Precision Health @ UTHealth Science Center -- Houston, TX (US)
    Submitted by Zhongming Zhao; posted on Thursday, September 10, 2020



    The Center for Precision Health (CPH) at the School of Biomedical Informatics (SBMI), the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) seeks an exceptional candidate for a non-tenure track position at the assistant professor level in the areas of precision medicine and bioinformatics.

    UTHealth is in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center (TMC), located in cosmopolitan Houston, Texas, the fourth largest city in the United States. CPH was established in January 2016, with the funds approved by the Texas Legislature to enhance biomedical and health informatics education and research in the State of Texas in the era of big data and precision medicine. A synergizing entity, CPH builds upon the core strengths of SBMI (i.e., informatics programs, centers and clinical resources) and School of Public Health (i.e., cohort-based research, statistical genomics, computational biology, environmental, behavioral and policy research programs) and develops both independent and collaborative research programs, as well as precision health resources, for UTHealth and other TMC institutions.


    The successful candidate will be expected to plan, supervise, and direct research in bioinformatics, genetic and genomic medicine, and related areas within the CPH. The candidate will provide technical expertise to lead in the development of study design, sample or data collection, pipeline development, data analysis, results interpretation, manuscript writing, and grant proposal preparation. Collaborative research with other faculty in the Center for Precision Health, at SBMI, and across UTHealth and the TMC (e.g., MD Anderson Cancer Center and Baylor College of Medicine, etc.) is also strongly encouraged. This position provides opportunities to supervise postdoctoral fellows and lead projects or team research initiatives, as well as develop grant applications.


    The candidate should possess a doctoral degree in one of the following areas: bioinformatics, genomics, genetics, computational biology, biomedical informatics, bioengineering, medicine, biostatistics, or a related discipline. A record of verifiable and published research in bioinformatics, genetics, or genomics is required; the potential to obtain extramural funding is strongly preferred. Excellent teamwork and communication skills are required.
