The Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology at Michigan State University seeks to fill two academic-year, tenure-system Assistant/Associate Professor positions. (Both positions are available at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank depending on qualifications and experience.) For one position, applicants with expertise in toxicology or a related research area are particularly encouraged to apply. For the other position, the ideal candidate will have expertise in one of the broad areas of current research in the department, including, but not limited to neuropharmacology, neurotoxicology, cardiovascular pharmacology, inflammation, cancer, and drug discovery. For both positions, mechanistic research that utilizes cutting-edge molecular methodology, e.g., gene editing and/or genetic manipulation by viral vectors, epigenetic analyses and single-cell approaches is highly desirable.

The successful applicant will be expected to maintain an extramurally-funded research program, engage in MSU’s highly collaborative research environment and contribute to the teaching mission of the department.
