22nd September 2021 : Lewis-Sigler Scholars Program at Princeton University

Hello,

The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton
University has an exciting opportunity that we would like to share with
you. We would greatly appreciate if you could please share this
announcement with qualified candidates.  Alternatively, if you would
like toforward the names and emails of
candidates whom you think might be qualified or interested in this
opportunity, we would be happy to contact them directly. Thank you very
much in advance.

*_Lewis-Sigler Scholars Program_*

Princeton University is pleased to announce a search for Lewis-Sigler
Scholars, a program aimed at attracting talented early-career scientists
(0-2 years from PhD) interested in quantitative approaches to biological
systems, supporting their intellectual development, and engaging them in
multidisciplinary education. The community of scholars will be drawn
from the full range of intellectual approaches represented at the
Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. Thus, we are looking
for Scholars who take experimental, theoretical, or computational
approaches, drawing on their backgrounds in biology, chemistry, computer
science, engineering, or physics.

Appointment will be at the rank of Associate Research Scholar, renewable
for up to five years, with a competitive salary and research support.
Candidates should be able to identify mentors on the Institute faculty
who match their research
interests, but should not think of themselves as applying to
postdoctoral positions in individual laboratories. Rather our hope is
that the community of Scholars will explore new directions, enlivening
our research efforts. Scholars may have the opportunity to perform a
modest amount of teaching in our multidisciplinary courses, according to
a plan that they may develop in conjunction with their mentor(s). While
teaching, a Scholar may hold a secondary appointment as a Lecturer in an
appropriate department, pending sufficient course enrollments and the
approval of the Dean of the Faculty.

We expect new Scholars to join us in September 2022 for the Fall
semester of 2022-23; but start dates as early as February 2022 are
possible; applicants must be able to provide verification of PhD
completion by these start dates.

*For fullest consideration, all application materials should be received
by October 15, 2021. Candidates selected for interview will participate
in a symposium on November 30, 2021; applicants are asked to reserve
this date. *
