Genome Integrity (Faculty Positions)
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at NYU School of Medicine
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at the NYU School of Medicine invites applications for tenure track positions in the areas of biochemical and translational studies related to DNA damage repair pathways and cell cycle control. We seek creative and ambitious applicants with exceptional records of achievement to join our department, which is comprised of an interdisciplinary faculty with expertise in epigenetics, genome integrity, protein degradation, and chromosome biology (https://med.nyu.edu/biomolpharm/frontpage). The candidate’s research interests should synergize with the highly collaborative environment within the Department and throughout the NYU research community. Preference will be given to individuals qualifying at the level of Assistant Professor, but candidates for appointments above the rank of Assistant Professor must have current extramural funding and evidence of active contribution to graduate training and medical education. Physician scientists are encouraged to apply.
New faculty members will be supported with generous start-up packages, excellent laboratory space, access to laboratory animal facilities, and a wide range of state-of-the-art core facilities providing services in genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, cell imaging, flow cytometry, and pathology. Successful candidates are expected to initiate and maintain a vigorous, independent, extramurally-funded research program, participate in the NYU School of Medicine graduate programs within the Sackler Institute and be eligible for membership in NIH-supported training programs designed to support pre- and post-doctoral trainees.
For consideration, please apply through Interfolio (http://apply.interfolio.com/43283) with: 1) Cover letter; 2) Curriculum Vitae; 3) Brief Description of Research Accomplishments; 4) Brief description of Research Objectives; 5) Up to two key recent publications; 6) Name and contact information for 3 references. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the search is closed on Jan 15, 2018.
