Carnegie Mellon University

Open Teaching Postdoctoral Fellow Position 

The Ray and Stephanie Lane Computational Biology Department is a world leader in the development of rigorous computational approaches to biomedical research problems with a long track record of educational innovation in computational biology.  The department’s teaching mission encompasses education of students in PhD, MS, BS, undergraduate minor, and pre-college programs in computational biology, as well as training of experimental biologists and other scientists in computational methods, mathematical and statistical foundations, data-driven scientific discovery, and automated and computationally-directed laboratory science.  We seek candidates with commitment to and experience in computational biology education and mentoring within a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment.

SCS is seeking to fill several teaching postdoctoral positions, across all departments, including the Ray and Stephanie Lane Computational Biology Department.  These positions target recent PhD graduates with a strong interest in education who want to gain hands-on teaching experience under the mentorship of experienced educators.  They have a duration of one to two years and aim at preparing accepted individuals for teaching track positions in SCS and elsewhere.

Candidates with a commitment to building an equitable and diverse scholarly community are particularly encouraged to apply. We encourage applications from candidates who have a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing students from groups traditionally underrepresented in computer science.

SCS will begin accepting applications beginning August 2, 2022. We will review applications based on two deadlines: October 2, 2022 and December 8, 2022. To ensure full consideration of your application, please submit all materials no later than your chosen deadline.
