*_Lewis-Sigler Scholars Program_*

Princeton University is pleased to announce a search for Lewis-Sigler
Scholars, a new 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 as 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 for the Fall semester of 2021; start
dates as early as February 2021 are possible; applicants must have
completed their PhD by these start dates. *For fullest consideration,
all application materials should be received by November 1, 2020.
Candidates selected for interview will participate in a virtual
symposium on December 1, 2020; applicants are asked to reserve this date. *

To apply online, please visit
and submit a
cover letter, curriculum vitae that includes a list of publications, a
brief statement (2-3 pages) of research interests and goals, and contact
information for three references. ArXiv and BioRxiv postings should be
included in the publication list.**Please feel free to contact
lgallagh@princeton.edu with any
inquiries about the LS Scholars Program.**

Thank you very much for sharing this information with your colleagues
and students and for bringing to our attention outstanding candidates
for this position. We look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
