Open Positions

Faculty Positions in Computational Systems Medicine

The Department of Medicine at the University of Florida is expanding its research program in computational systems medicine with one position each at the tenured full, tenured associate, and tenure-track assistant professor level. These positions are research-focused, with modest teaching responsibilities. An internationally-recognized research program and demonstrated grant funding commensurate with seniority is expected.

All areas of research are being considered, with particular interest in the role of the immune system in a wide range of health conditions, such as respiratory diseases or cancer. Examples of current faculty research interests include multi-scale modeling of the immune response to respiratory infections, model-based control of microbial communities, ODE models of signaling pathways for tumor response to immunotherapy, and optimization of combination drug regimens.

We offer a highly collaborative research environment that closely integrates quantitative researchers with clinicians and experimentalists. The University of Florida is heavily engaged in a related initiative to build a strong research capability in artificial intelligence, including a partnership with Nvidia and the hire of 100 new faculty in this field. See this UF News item for more information.

The Laboratory for Systems Medicine is committed to increasing diversity, and especially welcomes applications from researchers who are members of underrepresented groups.

For more information, please contact Dr. Reinhard Laubenbacher, reinhard.laubenbacher@medicine.ufl.edu.

Additional Openings

The newly established Laboratory for Systems Medicine at University of Florida Health is focused on computational and mathematical approaches to human health. We have several immediate openings for faculty positions at all ranks, in both the research and tenure tracks.

We are looking for scientists who work well in an interdisciplinary environment, have an outstanding record and who have a strong track record or promise of extramural funding. While expertise in respiratory diseases and immunology are of particular interest, all aspects of human health, the basic science underpinning it, systems biology approaches, and a focus on computational and data science methodology will be seriously considered.

We are committed to creating an environment that supports diversity, collaboration, and interdisciplinarity. For inquiries, please contact Dr. Reinhard Laubenbacher, reinhard.laubenbacher@medicine.ufl.edu. We also have several research scientist and postdoctoral positions available for projects in computational systems biology, optimization, software development, bioinformatics, and biophysical modeling.
