HudsonAlpha invites applications for new faculty investigators

The HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology invites applications for new Faculty Investigators to join its dynamic team of scientists.

HudsonAlpha opened its doors in 2008 with a mission to translate the promise of genomics into medical, agricultural, educational and commercial realms. Scientists at HudsonAlpha use genomic and genetic approaches to answer important biological questions, especially those relevant to the genetic and molecular basis of human disease, agriculture, bioenergy and biodiversity.

HudsonAlpha’s 153-acre campus has state-of-the-art buildings and infrastructure for its unique blend of nonprofit research scientists, educators and commercially-oriented entrepreneurs, who share work space and know-how across organizational boundaries. The Institute has assembled an impressive concentration of research expertise and infrastructure in high-volume DNA sequencing, genotyping and functional assays that serves its own research scientists, as well as hundreds of partners’ needs, generating exomes, genomes, transcriptomes and functional genomic datasets.

The Institute provides generous support for productive research programs and offers an exciting academic environment thanks to formal partnerships with leading universities and medical centers around the world. Part of a vibrant science and engineering community, HudsonAlpha sits at the heart of Cummings Research Park, one of the world’s largest science and technology business parks, located in Huntsville, Ala.

Faculty candidates should have a graduate degree and an outstanding record of research achievement, including an established, internationally competitive, and independent research program. Candidates with interests and expertise in computational biology, human disease (particularly cancer genomics and neuro-psychological disorders) and plant genomics are especially encouraged to apply.

Recruitment will proceed through the 2014-2015 academic year; invitations for interviews will begin in the second half of 2014 in anticipation of start-dates in 2015. HudsonAlpha Institute is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity in its workplace.
