As part of the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, NC State University seeks three outstanding faculty at any rank to expand our interdisciplinary faculty cluster on Quantitative and Computational Developmental Biology ( living-embryo/). The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program ( is bringing some of the best and brightest minds to join NC State University’s interdisciplinary efforts to solve some of the globe’s most significant problems. Together with NC State’s existing strength in developmental biology, quantitative/computational sciences and engineering, this cluster will propel NC State to the forefront of efforts to define new principles in developing biological systems. Although we are interested in individuals who can bridge experiment and theory, and have the ability to translate research outcomes to address biomedical or agricultural challenges, applicants whose expertise is mainly in the computational realm are also strongly encouraged to apply.
