Description

The Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies (ICB) is an Army-sponsored University Affiliated Research Center (UARC). The ICB is a uniquely interdisciplinary research alliance led by the University of California, Santa Barbara, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the California Institute of Technology and partners from the Army and industry.

ICB research is driven by more than 50 premier faculty working together with graduate students, project scientists, specialists, and professional researchers as interdisciplinary teams of biologists, chemists, physicists, psychologists, physicians, social scientists, and engineers. These teams develop biologically inspired, revolutionary technological innovations in systems and synthetic biology, materials science and engineering, biotechnology tools and cognitive neuroscience.

Our department's Professors/Principal Investigators are actively seeking applicants for three different open pools that run throughout the year. These are large, pooled recruitments covering many disciplines and research foci. Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed through October 31, 2021. The number of positions varies depending on the needs of the department. The use of a pooled recruitment does not guarantee that an open position exists at the time you are applying. Positions may range from part-time to full-time.

Job requirements

  • Junior Specialists enable research as part of a team. They should possess a baccalaureate degree (or equivalent degree) or have equivalent research experience.
  • Assistant Specialists enable research as part of a team and may provide some independent input into the planning and execution of the research. They should possess a master’s degree (or equivalent degree) or have five years of experience demonstrating expertise in the relevant specialization.
  • Associate Specialists normally provide considerable independent input into the planning and execution of the research, have a record of academic accomplishments, including contributions to published research in the field, and a demonstrated record of University and/or public service. They should possess a master’s degree (or equivalent degree) or have five to ten years of experience demonstrating expertise in the relevant specialization.
  • Project Scientists (at all ranks) make significant and creative contributions to a research or creative project. Appointees may be ongoing members of a research team, or may contribute high-level skills to a specific project for a limited time. Demonstrated capacity for fully independent research or research leadership (at the level of the Researcher series) is not required in this series; however, appointees with the Project Scientist title should have broad range of knowledge and competency and be able to operate at a higher level of independence.
