Systems Biology Fellow David Soloveichik takes faculty position at UT Austin

June 30, 2015

Our Systems Biology Fellow David Soloveichik is leaving us to take a faculty position at the University of Texas at Austin in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, which he starts in August.



David completed his graduated work with Erik Winfree at Caltech, earning his PhD in Computation and Neural Systems. He did postdoctoral work in Computing Innovation with Georg Seelig at the University of Washington before joining our Center in 2011. In his time here, David has made enormous impact on our group and UCSF as a whole. In addition to the numerous research collaborations of which he was a part, David also founded the popular Theorizza (theory + pizza) seminar series at UCSF, which is still going strong today! David has been internationally recognized for his work, receiving the 2012 Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology (theory) and the 2014 ISNSCE Tulip Award.


We will miss David's strong theory contributions to our group, and also his very generous and kind demeanor. He has been a pleasure to work with over the last three and a half years. We wish him all the best in his faculty job and success in his research endeavors!
