Princeton University is inviting applications for Lewis-Sigler Scholars, a program aimed at attracting talented early-career scientists (0-2 years from PhD) interested in quantitative approaches to biological systems, supporting their intellectual development, and engaging them in multidisciplinary education. Scholars must have some interest in experimental, theoretical, or computational approaches, drawing on backgrounds in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, or physics.
- Appointment will be at the rank of Associate Research Scholar, renewable for up to five years, with a competitive salary and research support.
- Candidates should be able to identify mentors on the Institute faculty who match their research interests but should not think of themselves as applying to postdoctoral positions in individual laboratories.
- While teaching, a Scholar may hold a secondary appointment as a Lecturer in an appropriate department, pending sufficient course enrollments and the approval of the Dean of the Faculty.
- The Scholars are expected to join us in September 2022 for the Fall semester of 2022-23; but start dates as early as February 2022 are possible.
- Applicants must be able to provide verification of PhD completion by these start dates.
Apply online and submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae that includes a list of publications, a brief statement (2-3 pages) of research interests and goals and contact information for three references. ArXiv and BioRxiv postings should be included in the publication list.
