The School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering (SICE), and the Department of Chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences (COAS), Indiana University, Bloomington, are inviting applications for two new tenure-track or tenured faculty positions in the fields of computational and systems biology as a part of cluster hires under the Precision Health Initiative (PHI), one of Indiana University’s Grand Challenge initiatives (, a multi-million dollar investment by the university in research that aims to transform biomedical research, health care innovations and the delivery of health interventions in Indiana. 

The School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering and the Department of Chemistry are interested in candidates specializing in statistical and combinatorial methods for genomic, transcriptomic or proteomic data analysis (e.g. focusing on single cell or single molecule sequencing techniques, 3-D structure of the genome), genome association studies for complex phenotypes, computational network biology (possibly involving molecular and/or cellular networks), as well as emerging areas of potential significance in biomedicine (e.g. integrative analysis of molecular imaging and omics data). The Department of Chemistry is further interested in candidates specializing in computational structural biology or mass spectrometry-based computational systems biology. A Ph.D. in Computer Science, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics or a related field is required. Successful candidates will be expected to develop or already have a visible, externally funded research program. Primary teaching responsibilities will be consistent with the expertise of the candidate and will include both graduate and undergraduate courses.  Applications completed by December 1, 2018 will receive full consideration, but review will continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should submit a complete curriculum vitae, a summary of future research plans, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation to

  Questions regarding the position or application process can be directed to: Prof. Yuzhen Ye ( or Prof. David Giedroc (

We encourage candidates who share our vision of transforming biomedical research through innovative computational approaches, in close collaboration with our partners within the PHI, to apply.  Appointments will be made either entirely in the School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering (in either the Department of Computer Science or Intelligent Systems Engineering), or the Department of Chemistry, depending on the expertise of the successful faculty candidate.   Under exceptional circumstances, a joint position may be offered.  Regardless of the appointing department, we envision that successful candidates will actively engage with faculty in both School of Informatics, Computing and Engineering and the Department of Chemistry.
