The Cluster in Evolutionary Genetics and Genomics at the University of Utah invites applications for positions in Evolutionary Genetics and Genomics. Academic appointments may be in the School of Biological Sciences (College of Science) or Department of Human Genetics (School of Medicine). Successful applicants will join a vibrant intellectual community across the University of Utah working at the interface of genomics, computational biology, and molecular biology. The Cluster will build on substantial, ongoing investments in genome science and experimental basic science at the University of Utah, a unique and inclusive community at the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains with nearby world-class cultural and recreational opportunities.
Applications by investigators, both experimental and theoretical, in all areas of evolutionary genetics and genomics of any organism(s) are encouraged. Examples of areas that will be considered include (but are not limited to): microbial evolutionary genomics, vertebrate or plant population genomics, comparative evolutionary genetics and developmental biology, and human evolutionary genomics. Openings are at the Assistant Professor level, but exceptional candidates at the Associate Professor and Professor level will be considered.
Initial interview selections will begin on October 1, 2018, but applications submitted at a later date may be considered.
