The Department of Cell, Developmental, and Integrative Biology (CDIB) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine seeks highly-qualified applicants for two tenure track Assistant Professor positions. Candidates with research programs focused on cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating musculoskeletal (skeletal muscle/bone/cartilage/tendon/ligament) development, growth, pathophysiology, repair, or regeneration will be considered.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. (or similar doctorate) and have a demonstrated record of scholarly activity with preference given to candidates utilizing state-of-the-art approaches that complement existing expertise within the department.  This includes, but is not limited to, some combination of cutting edge imaging, developmental or stem cell biology, genomic engineering, and computational studies using rodent or other model systems extending to humans.

Successful candidates are expected to maintain a robust, independent, extramurally funded research program and participate in departmental teaching and scholarly activities. A strong commitment to excellence in graduate student training and medical education is also required. Candidates who have successfully competed for extramural funding from NIH, NSF, VA, or competitive research foundations will be given top priority.  Applicants should send a CV, a one page outline of research accomplishments, a summary of research goals, and a list of at least three individuals willing to provide letters of recommendation.
