The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health invites applications for the position of E.V. McCollum Professor and Chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.  The successful applicant will have an outstanding record of academic and research accomplishment, demonstrated leadership and administrative abilities, and a compelling vision for the impact of the Department on public health.  Research programs of particular interest include but are not limited to structural or cell biology, metabolism, genomics and the microbiome.

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is dedicated to the discovery and study of factors that contribute to human health and disease at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels. Its mission is to improve human health and inform public health policy and practice through research and discoveries.  Research initiatives in the department are broadly focused on better understanding quality control pathways that preserve protein function and genome integrity, mechanisms and factors that contribute to reproductive health and age-related diseases including cancer and neurodegeneration. 

The Department’s robust educational program offers a broad spectrum of study emphasizing molecular studies of multiprotein systems, molecular and cellular biology and biochemical nutrition, with applications to cancer, aging, neurological diseases and environmentally-based diseases.  The Department has 17 full-time faculty, over 130 doctoral, master’s and postdoctoral students and a diverse research program.

The Bloomberg School of Public Health has ten departments, 680 primary faculty and more than 2,200 graduate-level students.  The School is located on the Johns Hopkins University East Baltimore medical campus.  Both the East Baltimore campus and the broader University present a collaborative and highly interactive environment with a superb research infrastructure. 

The Johns Hopkins University is committed to recruiting, supporting and fostering a diverse community of outstanding faculty, staff and students.  Outstanding prospective candidates who share this goal are encouraged to apply.  Women and under-represented minority candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.  The Johns Hopkins University is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, disability, marital status, veteran status or any other occupationally irrelevant criteria.  The University promotes affirmative action for minorities, women, disabled persons and veterans.

Those interested in being considered as candidates may submit their CVs to BMBChairSearch@jhu.edu.  Review of candidates will begin in November 2017.
