Two Assistant Professor Positions (Genetics and Molecular Biology)
Tenure-Track Positions in Molecular/Cellular Biology and Genetics/Genomics
The Department of Biological Science at The University of Tulsa invites applications for two tenure-track assistant professor positions with demonstrated interests and expertise in the areas of molecular/cellular biology and genetics/genomics. We seek creative and interactive individuals working on fundamental problems in any area of cellular/molecular biology or genetics/genomics, as they relate to basic biomedical and biological sciences. We anticipate a fall 2018 start date for these positions. The successful applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. and post-doctoral experience, to establish a vigorous extramurally funded research program involving both undergraduate and graduate students, and to participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching in his or her area of expertise. Because two positions are available we will consider the recruitment of faculty members with overlapping or synergistic research programs in these areas.
Responsibilities include teaching general genetics and appropriate upper-level/graduate courses in genetics/genomics.
Interested parties should submit a cover letter, current curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests (max. two pages each), and names and complete contact information for three references. Applications should be submitted electronically to Genetics Search Committee Chair, Dr. Ron Bonett (email@example.com). For full consideration applications should be received by 30 September 2017.
Molecular/Cellular Biology Position
