| The Biological and Agricultural Engineering Department at North Carolina State University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position, at the assistant professor rank, in metabolic engineering to enhance interdisciplinary research and teaching programs (65% Research and 35% Teaching). Our department seeks an outstanding candidate who will provide leadership in improving our understanding and modulation of metabolic pathways in living cell systems to address the challenging demands of providing food, feed, fiber and energy to a growing population. |
The new faculty member will be expected to develop a research program capable of harnessing, altering and directing the metabolism of living systems for improved development of processes and useful products. Expertise and focus within the areas of pathway modeling to simulate and predict cellular function and behavior, molecular biotechnology, pathway modification or manipulation for microbial and/or plant systems are desired. The new faculty member will be responsible for teaching courses in our biological engineering curriculum, especially those tied to the bioprocessing program and the development of new metabolic engineering courses.
The successful candidate will have an interest in and capability for collaborating across disciplines and it is anticipated that the individual will form significant collaborations with others working in areas such as applied microbiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, cellular physiology and process engineering. This individual will be encouraged to foster relationships with the recent Microbiome and Complex Microbial Communities, Synthetic and Systems Biology, Genetic Engineering and Society, and Bioinformatics cluster hires.
