The Department of Microbiology and the National Institute for 
Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) at the University of 
Tennessee, Knoxville invite applications for a tenure-track faculty 
position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the area of Microbial 
Systems Biology, with a primary appointment in Microbiology. We seek 
applicants whose research will center on modeling the metabolism, 
regulation, evolution, and other emergent properties of microbial 
systems on the intracellular, community, or ecosystem level. Such 
research should integrate multiple types of experimental data, possibly 
including biomolecular "omics" data, into a mathematical framework for 
microbial systems. It is anticipated that candidates will have 
experience and interests in the synthesis of experimental and 
observational data through quantitative modeling and theory: a 
competitive start-up for creating a mathematics or theory based research 
group to collaborate with empiricists will be available. The successful 
candidate will address questions that complement existing strengths in 
the Microbiology department, and the cross-disciplinary approaches 
supported by NIMBioS. There also exist opportunities to interact with 
groups and facilities in the nearby Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

A PhD in a computational, statistical or mathematical sciences or a 
biological field as well as relevant postdoctoral research experience 
are required. The successful candidate is expected to establish an 
innovative, externally-funded research program and contribute to the 
departmental teaching mission at the undergraduate and graduate levels. 
The position will start as early as August 1, 2017, and the salary will 
be competitive.

Applications should include a brief cover letter, CV with list of 
publications, a 2-3 page outline of research interests, and a separate 
1-2 page description of teaching interests. Please provide the contact 
information for three individuals who are familiar with the applicant 
and would be willing to provide letters of recommendation. Please email 
the application as a single pdf file to MicroNIMBioS from nimbios.org. 
Letters should be addressed to Dr. Steven Wilhelm, Professor of 
Microbiology, and informal inquiries may be sent to him at 
wilhelm from utk.edu. Review of applications will begin Dec 1, 2016 and will 
continue until the position is filled.
