Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy
The Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy of The Chicago Medical School, Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position. The successful applicant is expected to establish a strong, extramurally funded research program, and to contribute to medical and graduate teaching. Candidates are particularly encouraged who are applying cellular and molecular approaches to the study of fundamental mechanisms of human disease. Clinical populations and physician collaborators are available through affiliations with Advocate Lutheran General Hospital and the Lovell Federal Health Care Center (a veterans administration hospital), and other sites in the Chicago area. Available core resources include confocal, live-cell and electron microscopy facilities, as well as structural biology and proteomics centers. Current areas of research in the Department include the neurobiology of learning and memory, community structure of neural networks, molecular cell biology of muscle development, cellular trafficking and extracellular matrix, RNA biology, RNA processing in human disease, organization of gene expression, and molecular defects underlying muscular dystrophies. Information on the Department may be found at: http://www.rosalindfranklin.edu/cms/biology.aspx.
