OHSU is seeking exceptional Assistant Professor tenure-track faculty candidates with a focus on computational approaches to understand the consequences of tumor heterogeneity for tumor evolution, treatment, and outcome. These aspects of tumor biology might be interrogated by computational analysis and integration of data generated from a variety of techniques, include imaging, DNA sequence characterization, and measurements of mRNA or protein.
Our faculty members exist within a highly interdisciplinary and collaborative environment with a focus on integrated and open team science. Candidates should have advanced training in machine learning or statistical learning techniques, with a track record of innovation in a biomedical and/or clinical application, as evidenced by a strong publication record and development of novel methodological approaches.
The successful candidate will be a primary member of the program in computational biology within the School of Medicine and Knight Cancer Institute with a faculty appointment in an appropriate basic science department based on candidate\u2019s interests and research such as Cell Developmental and Cancer Biology (CDCB) or Biomedical Engineering (BME). Research interests in CDCB embrace complex interactions between cells and their environments, focusing on molecular and cell-based mechanisms regulating tissue homeostasis, acute and chronic tissue damage, and how these interactions are altered in diseases such as cancer. The Department of Biomedical Engineering research and teaching are focused on solving unmet clinical needs in the areas of cardiovascular and infectious diseases, rehabilitation medicine, and cancer with research ranging from basic science bioengineering, to theoretical modeling of systems, to clinical and translational science.
As the state's only health and research university, OHSU brings together patient care, research, education of the next generation of health care providers and scientists and community service to improve the health and well-being of all Oregonians.The university is a conduit for learning for more than 2,800 students, providing training to interns, residents and fellows in postgraduate medical and research. It is the only place in Oregon that grants doctoral degrees in medicine, dentistry and nursing. OHSU cares for more than 251,000 patients each year from around the region and takes a leadership role in contributing to solutions involving the health of the state and the nation, such as health care access and transparency, ethics and workforce shortage. Beyond providing critical health care services, quality education and cutting-edge research, OHSU also is a key economic and social force in the Northwest. With an annual operating budget of $2.06 billion and more than 14,000 employees, OHSU is Portland?s largest employer. Its size contributes to its ability to provide... many services and community support activities not found anywhere else in Oregon. For more information visit http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/about/index.cfm
