Professor, Associate Professor and Assistant Professor

The Hormel Institute, a biomedical research center of the University of Minnesota, was established in 1942 and has an excellent reputation and long history for producing world-class medical research.  The Institute’s research success has resulted in a second major expansion of its research facilities and includes an additional new state-of-the-art laboratory building that opened in January 2016.  The Hormel Institute offers its research scientists complete access to state-of-the- art cutting edge equipment that includes a cryo-electron microscope (Titan Krios and Tecnai G2 Spirit Biotwin); FACS cell sorter; confocal microscopy; flow cytometry; protein crystallography robotics and defraction system; nano-HPLC-AB SCIEX triple TOF 5600 mass spectrometry; Leica tissue processor, embedder and microtome; real-time PCR instrumentation; a Blue Gene/L and 3 racks of Linux GPU supercomputers for computational biology and bioinformatics; spectrophotometers; and Western blot imagers. In conjunction with this most recent building expansion, we are currently accepting applications for three (3) to five (5) new faculty positions.  We are seeking faculty appointments at the levels of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor, and/or Endowed Professor. 

Qualifications:  Candidates must demonstrate the ability to establish an independent, extramurally funded program of cancer-related research that will complement ongoing programs.  Preference will be given to applicants with a strong background in areas to include molecular/cellular biology, protein crystallography, biological computation/informatics, stem cells, or cancer biology and a successful research record in one of the following areas: signal transduction, gene expression, functional genomics, molecular carcinogenesis, chemoprevention or other areas of cancer research.  A Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree and 2 to 3 years of postdoctoral experience are required for Assistant Professor, external funding is preferred.  Proven ability to acquire extramural funding is required for appointment of Associate Professor or Professor. For endowed professorships, the applicant should be an internationally renowned researcher with substantial external funding.
