Faculty Position
The Johns Hopkins University
Institute for Computational Medicine

The mission of the Institute for Computational Medicine is to develop
quantitative approaches for understanding the mechanisms, diagnosis,
and treatment of human disease through application of mathematics,
engineering and computer science. The Institute builds on
internationally recognized research programs based in both The Johns
Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Whiting School of
Engineering. The scope of research in the Institute is broad. Using
data collected by experimental collaborators or from their own
experiments, institute researchers develop computational models of
biomolecules, molecular pathways, cells, tissue and organs, and use
these models to understand the fundamental mechanisms and treatment of
disease. Current application areas include cardiovascular disease,
angiogenesis, cancer, cystic fibrosis, motor disorders and other brain
and psychiatric diseases. Institute researchers are also developing
mathematical and computational methods for analyzing anatomic
structure and function, and its variation in health and disease.
Current application areas include neuropsychiatric and heart diseases.
A cross-cutting theme in each of these areas is the development of
statistical learning methods that effectively use high-dimensional
multi-scale data to make diagnoses, and predict risk and outcomes in a
range of diseases.

The Institute invites applications for a tenured or tenure-track
faculty position in these areas, or in new directions that complement
this work. New faculty will be appointed in an appropriate department
of the Whiting School of Engineering or School of Medicine. Successful
applicants will be expected to establish independently funded research
programs and participate in undergraduate and post-graduate education
and research training.

In order to ensure full consideration, applications should be received
no later than May 31, 2011. Please submit, via email and in MS Word or
PDF format only, a curriculum vitae, a statement of research goals,
and the names, e-mail addresses and phone numbers of three references
to: Dr. Raimond L. Winslow,
