The Department of Biological Sciences, University at Albany, State University of New York, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in the areas of cell biology and molecular genetics. Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to, stem cell biology in development and regeneration and cellular and genetic control of normal and disease-specific physiological processes. Candidates can use any biological system in pursuit of their research interests, and candidates who compliment or expand existing Department strengths are particularly encouraged to apply.
The successful candidate is expected to establish a sustained, externally funded research program that may include collaborative and interdisciplinary research. Faculty in the Department have access to modern functional genomic and imaging facilities, as well as other key core facilities serving a broad range of biological approaches. Local opportunities for collaboration within the university include faculty in the Life Sciences (http://www.albany.edu/ lifesciences), the RNA Institute (http://www.albany.edu/rna), and the School of Public Health (http://www.albany.edu/sph).
Candidates will contribute to the Department's graduate program in Molecular, Cellular, Developmental, and Neural Biology, and will be expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels in courses appropriate to their expertise.
Applicants should have the ability to interact with a diverse faculty and student population working across a broad set of research areas.
