Assistant Professor/Associate Professor/Professor, Mechanobiology Institute
The Mechanobiology Institute (MBI) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) is a leading multidisciplinary institute devoted to developing new paradigms for understanding biological functions in health and diseases from the perspective of cell, tissue and organ mechanics/dynamics and mechano-signal transduction. The institute operates on a fully integrated open-lab philosophy, with extensive infrastructure support by core facilities dedicated to technologies such as state-of-the-art light microscopy, nano- and micro- fabrication, and computing.
MBI invites applications from outstanding candidates for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at all levels: Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Full Professor.
MBI is seeking candidates with a commitment to both independent and collaborative interdisciplinary research in a broad area of mechanical and dynamical processes in cell, tissue and organ development, aging, repair and regeneration.
Consideration will be given to candidates with a strong track record in incorporating single-cell analysis, omics and bioinformatics, high-throughput screens, and/or computation and modeling.
Compelling research programs in other areas, such as advanced methodology development in imaging and image analysis using artificial intelligence, nano biotechnology, and diagnostics, will also be considered.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree and post-doctoral training in relevant fields, along with demonstrated excellence in research and interest in teaching. A junior faculty candidate is expected to demonstrate significant creativity and independence in research, and participate in teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
