Bioinformatics Lecturer Position

The Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics at the University of Michigan Medical School seeks outstanding applicants for a full-time Lecturer position.

Major duties include:

1. Redesign and teach an introductory graduate-level programming course with a focus on bioinformatics data analysis and applications. This course should be accessible to non-bioinformatics students with little or no prior programming experience.
• Integrate lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions.
• Prepare course objectives, lessons, exercises/projects, exams, and hands-on problem sets; make efficient use of existing online teaching infrastructure.
• Develop didactic material for real-life applications.
• Annually update as the field evolves, with student questionnaires to evaluate effectiveness of the curriculum.
• Supervise the Graduate Student Instructor for the course.

2. Teach in DCMB’s existing introductory graduate bioinformatics course.
• Work with the Course Director on course design.
• Prepare, update, and present lectures on bioinformatics topics, with adequate biological background.
• Develop and present bioinformatics laboratory sessions to complement the lectures.
• Supervise the activities of the Graduate Student Instructors for the course

3. Depending on the candidate’s background in biological sciences, he/she may participate in teaching the two-week intensive Introduction to Biology course in the summer, Bioinformatics Basic Biology Lab, also known as the “Biology Boot Camp” or in the currently 1 week intensive Introduction to Biocomputing camp.

4. Participate in the review, recruitment, and admissions of the Master’s in Bioinformatics Program. Assist in advising master’s students in the program about research options and external internship opportunities.

5. Organize the weekly DCMB graduate student research presentations. This includes scheduling the talks, preparing announcements, and attending and moderating the student presentations.

There are opportunities for a partial research-track faculty appointment in a related department. This position is covered under the collective bargaining agreement between the U-M and the Lecturers Employee Organization, AFL-CIO, which contains and settles all matters with respect to wages, benefits, hours and other terms and conditions of employment.

Qualifications: Candidates for this position should have a PhD in Bioinformatics, Biology or a related field with experience in bioinformatics, and ability to program comfortably in multiple languages. Ability to teach an introductory programming course, preferably in Python, is required. Preferred candidates will have sufficient background in biology to teach introductory course to students lacking a background in college-level biology. Also desired are 2+ years of teaching at college or graduate level and evidence of expertise in course development and evaluation. Must have outstanding verbal and written communication skills. Favorable attention will be given to demonstrated interest and ability in developing additional course(s) that closely follow the emerging topics in bioinformatics, including but not limited to cloud computing, cybersecurity, mobile apps, e-notebooks, and high-performance computing.

Applicants should send a letter of interest with Curriculum Vitae, Statement of teaching philosophy and interests, and a list of three or more references with current contact information to:
