The School of Science, Engineering, and Technology (SET) at St. Mary's University, a private, four-year Catholic university located in San Antonio, Texas invites applications for a Tenure-Track Position in Bioinformatics at the Assistant Professor level, with the ability to develop and teach a broad range of courses across an undergraduate bioinformatics curriculum. The position is currently available, and can begin immediately upon completion of the hiring process (Spring 2018). This position requires a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics or a related field (e.g., Biology, Computer Science, Mathematics), and a commitment to excellence in teaching, research, program development and evaluation, teamwork, and service. The successful candidate will have at least five years' experience in higher education instruction and program development/evaluation, with strong teamwork skills and demonstrated ability to work collaboratively.

Starting in Year 2 of this five-year grant, the successful candidate for this position will serve as the Bioinformatics Specialist and work with grant staff and St. Mary's faculty in Biology, Mathematics, and Computer Science to develop the new Bioinformatics concentration from existing courses, as well as developing and piloting (teaching) new courses that will form the foundation for the new concentration. The Bioinformatics Specialist will also work with grant staff to develop articulation agreements with local 2-year colleges. The Bioinformatics Specialist position will be institutionalized over years 2-5 of the project, remaining at StMU as tenure-track program faculty after the grant is completed.

 

Opportunities for multi-disciplinary research exist within SET, and for more information about the school, refer to the webpage at https://www.stmarytx.edu/academics/set/. The area of specialization for the Bioinformatics Specialist will vary depending on the successful candidate's background. The successful candidate will demonstrate the following personal attributes: strong oral and written communication skills; highly organized; proactive; capable of working independently, yet able to work in a team; the ability to establish rapport with a range of constituents across the campus; and the ability to work with a diverse student body in a multicultural environment.
