Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Mathematical Biology of Infectious Disease
Tenure-Track, Assistant or early Associate Professor
Academic Year (9 month appointment) Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Cornell University Ithaca, NY 14853
START DATE: Anticipated July 2019
OPPORTUNITY: We invite applications for a tenure track position in the Mathematical Biology of Infectious Disease at the level of Assistant or early Associate Professor. We are seeking candidates who use mathematical, statistical or computational approaches to model dynamics of infectious disease, informed by empirical data and with an emphasis on ecological systems. Research could be conducted at various scales of inquiry from dynamics of pathogens within individual hosts, to population-level spread of infection, to epidemiology of infection and disease at landscape and ecosystem levels. The appointed faculty member will be expected to establish an independent, innovative, well-funded and internationally recognized research program. We are especially interested in candidates who will be interactive and motivated by collaboration with empirical biologists. This position is associated with the Cornell Institute of Host-Microbe Interactions and Disease (CIHMID) and is consistent with a campus-wide emphasis on expanding research and teaching in Infection Biology. Potential exists for intellectual connections and collaborations across multiple disciplines and units at Cornell, including: Computational Biology, the Center for Applied Mathematics, the Departments of Entomology, Microbiology, and Molecular Biology and Genetics, the School of Integrative Plant Science, the College of Veterinary Medicine and Weill Cornell Medicine.
QUALIFICATIONS:Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Mathematical Biology, Mathematics, Statistics, or related area and demonstrated excellence in research. Previous research should be focused on quantitative dynamics of infectious disease at any scale ranging from kinetics within a single host to landscape-scale epidemiology. Candidates should have a strong interest in collaborative research and a dedication to excellence in teaching. Post-doctoral experience is highly desirable.
SALARY/BENEFITS:Support will be competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience. An attractive fringe benefit package is included.
