Assistant Professor - Human Genetics
Clemson University: College of Science: Genetics & Biochemistry
Greenwood, SC
Open Date

Jan 6, 2021


Clemson University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor as part of a Cluster Hire at the Center for Human Genetics, with an expected start date of August 2021. Clemson University offers competitive salaries, benefits and start-up funds.

The successful applicant will have an accomplished research record at the forefront of human genetics/genomics. Applicants whose research combines experimental laboratory work and computational approaches are especially desirable.

The Center for Human Genetics (https://scienceweb.clemson.edu/chg/) is housed in Self Regional Hall, a new 17,000-square-foot building located in Greenwood, South Carolina on Greenwood Genetic Center Partnership Campus. The Center for Human Genetics provides a vibrant interactive research environment with state-of-the-art genomic and computational resources, and is ideally configured for collaborative research with excellent bioinformatics facilities and state-of-the-art molecular laboratories. The Center for Human Genetics and the Greenwood Genetic Center are well-equipped for genomics, proteomics and metabolomics research, including NovaSeq 6000 and PacBio Sequel II sequencers. Successful applicants will be part of a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment that includes the research, diagnostic and clinical geneticists at the Greenwood Genetic Center, the genetics, genomics, statistics and bioinformatics faculty at Clemson University, the USC School of Medicine in Greenville and the Greenville Health System. The home department will be determined by the fit of the applicant’s research interests with the mission of one of the departments in the College of Science (www.clemson.edu/science), including the Department of Genetics and Biochemistry (www.clemson.edu/science/departments/genetics-biochemistry/index.html), the Department of Mathematical Sciences (www.clemson.edu/science/departments/mathematical-sciences/index.html) and the Department of Biological Sciences (www.clemson.edu/science/departments/biosci/index.html).

The University and Center for Human Genetics are committed to building a diverse and inclusive community of faculty scholars dedicated to working and teaching in a multi-cultural environment (http://www.clemson.edu/inclusion/). We are also supportive of the needs of dual-career couples.


Successful candidates must hold a doctoral degree and have postdoctoral experience. Competitive candidates will demonstrate an ability to develop a vigorous and independent, externally funded and nationally recognized research program; demonstrate teaching excellence and a commitment to diversity inclusion; and participate in relevant undergraduate and graduate education programs.
