The Division of Clinical Pharmacology is one of the world’s largest and oldest clinical pharmacology programs with approximately $19 million in extramural direct research support. The Division’s scientific mission is to understand the mechanisms of drug action to improve human health. Clinical Pharmacology faculty engage in research that bridges clinical and basic sciences in collaboration with Vanderbilt’s broad community of clinically and translationally focused research programs including the Oates Institute for Experimental Therapeutics, the Bone Center, the Institute of Chemical Biology, the Center for Neuroscience Drug Discovery, the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, the Epithelial Biology Center, Vanderbilt Genetics Institute, and the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.

The Department of Pharmacology is one of the most distinguished pharmacology departments in the country with faculty making seminal contributions to receptor theory and signaling, drug metabolism, neuroscience, bioactive lipids, and the genetic basis of cardiovascular dysfunction.  The department fosters creativity, collegiality, and leadership and supports critical thinking to promote innovation, scholarship and integrity.

Minimum qualifications include a MD, PhD, or MD/PhD degree, evidence of extramural funding or potential to obtain such funding, independent high-impact publications, use of cutting-edge approaches or paradigms, scholarly and service activities commensurate with rank, and research accomplishments in any relevant area of clinically focused or translational research.  Applicants with research programs that complement Vanderbilt’s strengths in precision medicine and mechanisms underlying variability in drug response, bioactive lipids and redox biology, computational biology, and G-protein-coupled receptor pharmacology are particularly encouraged.
