The Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor.  The University of South Carolina School of Medicine was formed in the late 1970s and has experienced substantial growth in its research and educational programs.  The Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy has an energetic group of faculty with research expertise in cardiovascular development and disease, regenerative medicine, biomaterials, reproductive biology and extracellular matrix.  Applicants must have a PhD and postdoctoral experience in a research area that integrates with the focus areas of the department. Successful candidates are expected to establish an externally-funded research program of national and international prominence. 

Applicants are also expected to have teaching interests and experience that allow integration into departmental educational responsibilities.  Faculty in the department teach highly respected courses in human anatomy, histology, cell biology, biochemistry, microscopy and other areas in the medical, graduate and undergraduate educational programs of the university.  Departmental teaching responsibilities include participation in the Biomedical Engineering program.  This is a rapidly growing program that trains over 350 undergraduate and graduate students and is comprised of over fifty core and affiliate faculty members in the School of Medicine and College of Engineering and Computing.  Individuals who have research and teaching interests that warrant participation as affiliate or core faculty in this program are particularly encouraged to apply.

Appointed faculty will receive strong mentorship from senior faculty in the School of Medicine and may be eligible for target faculty status on multi-investigator grants centered at the University of South Carolina including NIH Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) and IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) programs.  The University of South Carolina School of Medicine is closely affiliated with the William Jennings Bryan Dorn Veterans Affairs Hospital providing candidates the potential opportunity to take advantage of VA research programs.

Interested individuals should submit their application including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research plan and contact information of at least three references online using the University of South Carolina Jobs system at http://uscjobs.sc.edu/postings/23736 .  The department is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute through their research, teaching and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.  The review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
