The Graduate Center of the City University of New York has launched an
Initiative for the Theoretical Sciences (ITS), with the goal of building a
multidisciplinary community of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, students, and
visitors, all united by their interest in the mathematical description of
nature.  In the current academic year, we are searching for faculty members
whose research interests are focused on the phenomena of life, but whose
methods and style are grounded in the traditions of theoretical physics and
applied mathematics.   Applications will be considered across the full
range of biological topics, from the dynamics of single molecules to the
behavior of animal groups; we are especially interested in candidates whose
interests transcend historical boundaries among the subfields of biology.


Appointments will be made through the PhD program in Biology, with
affiliations to other doctoral Programs possible (e.g. Physics,
Mathematics, Computer Science), as appropriate.   Positions are available
at all academic ranks, although it is the preference of the Graduate Center
to make appointments with tenure (Associate Professor and above).
Applicants are expected to demonstrate an outstanding record of independent
research accomplishment and creativity, as well as an interest in mentoring
and community building.  In particular, faculty recruited in this search
will play a crucial role in the further development of ITS, across the full
range of intellectual opportunities for theory in the natural sciences.


Applicants should submit CV, a research statement, and three reference
letters to Prof. Laurel A. Eckhardt, Search Chair, through the City
University Employment online portal (cuny.jobs), and entering the Job ID
“13244” under “What.”


CUNY is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from
groups underrepresented in the scientific community.
