The Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin is seeking a distinguished investigator to fill a Moncrief Endowed Chair (https://www.oden.utexas.edu/programs/endowed-positions/) at the level of Full Professor in the area of Computational Medicine. We are particularly interested in recruiting a colleague whose research program combines mathematical, computational, and physical approaches to solving problems in medicine. Example areas include, but are not limited to, medical imaging, molecular biophysics, cardiovascular science, neuroscience, and oncology.
The Oden Institute is a unique interdisciplinary research and educational organization focused on transforming science, engineering, and medicine through the development and application of computation. Research programs at the Oden Institute are diverse and build upon the mathematical foundations for predictive science, data science, machine learning, and (in particular) physics-based modeling using state-of-the-art computing platforms. (Full details are available at https://www.oden.utexas.edu/.)
Applicants from quantitative science or engineering disciplines with an outstanding record of research accomplishments, publications, and external funding are encouraged to apply. Candidates are also expected to have a successful record of mentoring leaders in computational medicine, strong interest in undergraduate and graduate teaching in computational science and engineering, as well as a commitment to professional service. Additionally, we seek applicants who have a desire to build collaborations with the newly established Dell Medical School. The Oden Institute also has strong partnerships with medical institutions across Texas, including MD Anderson Cancer Center, UT Southwestern Medical Center, the Texas Heart Institute, and Health Science Centers at Houston and San Antonio.
Interested persons should include a cover letter, a detailed curriculum vitae including academic and professional experience and peer reviewed publications (please include PDF copies of your three most significant, peer-reviewed, published manuscripts), a statement of research, a statement of teaching philosophy, a statement summarizing past contributions to and future plans for promoting diversity; and the names and e-mail addresses of at least five references. Complete applications received by December 1, 2019 will be assured full consideration. Reviews will continue until the position is filled.
