Multiple Joint Open Rank Tenure-Track Faculty Positions –Machine Learning, Data Science, Cell Biology

The Duke University Departments of Cell Biology and Biostatistics and Bioinformatics jointly invite applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions in all aspects of machine learning, artificial intelligence, computational biology, and data science. Successful candidates will have a strong interest in motivating their theoretical and/or algorithmic research complement with biological research in the areas of cell biology, developmental biology, regenerative biology, and cellular neuroscience. Example application areas include machine learning or causal discovery/inference from single-cell and spatial multi-omics sequencing, genomic and proteomic data sets, biological imaging, multiscale modeling, and protein structural design/hallucination. Particular attractions of this position include a joint appointment in both departments, and exceptional data and translational opportunities across Duke University. Duke has an exceptional history in biomedical research innovation, and Durham and the Research Triangle form a vibrant community with an outstanding climate intellectually, culturally, and for year-round physical activity and recreation. We strongly support an inclusive environment that is committed to becoming antiracist, as well as the diversification of our faculty ranks.

Diversity and Inclusion: Duke University is an Equal Opportunity Affirmative Action Employer. Candidates with backgrounds underrepresented in science are especially encouraged to apply. The diversity statement should address why the candidate believes diversity and inclusion are important, with examples from their experiences and plans for future contributions. More information about departmental diversity, inclusion, and antiracist work can be found at: biostat.duke.edu/about/diversity-and-inclusion www.cellbio.duke.edu/dei

Important Dates: Applications should be received by October 25, 2022, for full consideration. Top candidates will be invited to a virtual symposium in late November to present their research and future plans.

Duke University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer committed to providing employment opportunity without regard to an individual's age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

To achieve this exchange, it is essential that all members of the community feel secure and welcome, that the contributions of all individuals are respected, and that all voices are heard. All members of our community have a responsibility to uphold these values.


Applicants should hold a MD./Ph.D and/or Ph.D. in biomedical research or computer science-related fields relevant to this search. Successful candidates will have track records of creativity and productivity, a desire to integrate into our exciting, collaborative, and growing community, and a dedication to contributing to our values of diversity and openness. They will be expected to mount a productive and innovative research program, obtain outside funding, and participate actively in graduate and post-graduate training and mentorship. The application package should include a cover letter accompanied by a one-page diversity statement, a curriculum vitae, a three-page statement of research (organized as a one-page summary of past research accomplishments and a two-page summary of your future research plans), and 3 letters of recommendation.
