Alexander Schliep received a MS in Mathematics from the University of Delaware working with Felix Lazebnik in extremal graph theory and a PhD degree in computer science from the Center for Applied Computer Science (ZAIK/ZPR) at the Universität zu Köln, Germany (2001; advisor Rainer Schrader), in collaboration with David C. Torney in the Theoretical Biology and Biophysics Group (T-10) at Los Alamos National Laboratory. From 2002-2009 he was the group leader of the Bioinformatics Algorithms Group in the Department for Computational Molecular Biology at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin.

From 2009-2016 he was an associate professor Rutgers University with a joint position in theDepartment of Computer Science and the BioMaPS Institute for Quantitative Biology. He is a permanent member of DIMACS, the Center for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science. In 2016 he joined the department for Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) which is jointly between Chalmers and Gothenburg University.

He serves as an associate editor for BMC Bioinformatics and Previously, he served as an associate editor for Discrete Mathematics, Algorithms and Applications.
