The Boston University Departments of Biology (College of Arts & Sciences) and Biochemistry (School of Medicine) invite applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Systems Biology starting in Fall 2022. We seek to recruit a colleague who uses high-throughput experimental and systems-level approaches to elucidate complex and dynamic biological processes, such as cell signaling, development in model organisms, epigenetic regulation, metabolism, nervous system function, protein homeostasis/trafficking, or transcriptional control. This search builds on recent faculty growth in systems biology and establishment of the Center for Network Systems Biology and seeks to generate new research synergies. Responsibilities include growing a vibrant research program with extramural funding, teaching graduate and/or undergraduate courses, and mentoring graduate students in research, with opportunities to participate in several interdisciplinary graduate programs. The successful candidate will be jointly appointed in Biology and Biochemistry and will contribute to a strong and growing interdisciplinary systems biology research community at Boston University that also benefits from close affiliations with engineering initiatives (including Photonics and Biological Design), and with clinical/translational efforts at the medical school. Boston University expects excellence in teaching and in research, and is committed to building a culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse scholarly community. The successful candidate will be offered newly renovated laboratory facilities as well as a competitive salary and generous start-up package.

Review of applications will begin 15 December 2021. Please use AcademicJobsOnline to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research, teaching interests and diversity, and three representative reprints, and arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted through the same website. In the diversity statement, applicants should provide evidence of a commitment to fostering diversity, equity, inclusive excellence, and evidence of participation in the creation of inclusive environments in their department/workplace. Inquiries can be addressed to Andrew Emili (, Chair, Systems Biology Search Committee. Please visit the following websites for information about the Biology Department and the Department of Biochemistry.
