The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Oregon (chemistry.uoregon.edu) invites applications for a tenure-track Biochemistry faculty member at the Assistant Professor level to begin in Fall 2018 or later. Biochemistry research at the University of Oregon takes place in the context of the Institute of Molecular Biology (molbio.uoregon.edu), which promotes interdisciplinary interactions between life science researchers in the departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Biology and Physics. A Ph.D. is required.

We seek applicants from all areas of biochemistry and structural biology who are using advanced approaches to study mechanisms of cellular function. New faculty will join a rich and collaborative atmosphere with existing strengths in host-pathogen interactions, stem cell biology, epigenetics, RNA metabolism, cell polarity, and cytoskeletal function. Successful candidates will have the potential for establishing an outstanding independent research program and excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. They will also support and enhance a diverse learning and working environment.

To assure full consideration, application materials should be received by October 9, 2017. Please upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research plans and objectives, and a brief statement of teaching philosophy or interests here at website: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9448. The candidate should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be uploaded directly by the recommenders. Review of application materials will continue until the position is filled.

UO is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment and strongly encourages applications from minorities, women, and people with disabilities. Applicants are encouraged to include in their cover letter information about how they will further this goal.
