The Departments of Mechanical and Electrical/Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara seek to hire a highly creative and productive individual to fill a Mellichamp Chair in Systems Biology, made possible by a generous gift by Duncan and Suzanne Mellichamp. Candidates at all levels and in all areas of Systems Biology will be considered, with preference given to candidates who incorporate an experimental element to their research.

UCSB is emerging as a leader in the field of Systems Biology. Current efforts focus on the computational modeling, simulation, analysis, and mechanical manipulation of biological networks, bio-image informatics, as well as the development of new sensors/devices for biomolecular analysis. A number of important biological processes are under investigation, including gene regulation, protein translocation, bioadhesion, and cellular mechanosensation.

The Systems Biology program is supported by superb interdisciplinary research and education centers on campus, including the Center for Control Dynamical Systems and Computation, the ARO-sponsored Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies, the California NanoSystems Institute, the Center for Stem Cell Biology and Engineering, the Neuroscience Research Institute, the Materials Research Laboratory, Center for Bio-image Informatics, and the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics.

UCSB College of Engineering has an outstanding record of multidisciplinary recruiting. Highly qualified individuals from all relevant disciplines are encouraged to apply. Primary and/or Joint appointments in related departments are possible. The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, and service.
