The Sam and Ann Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies, member of the Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio seeks outstanding candidates for tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor to complement existing strengths in molecular/physiological aspects of aging. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research foci include mechanistic aspects related to the biology of aging, species of exceptional biogerontological interest (e.g. naked mole-rats) and neurodegeneration, including the role of cellular senescence on the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease and other tauopathies. The successful applicant should have an ongoing federally-funded extramural research program. The applicant also is expected to maintain a vigorous extramurally funded research program at the Barshop Institute as well as participate in graduate student training and didactic education in the Biology of Aging Program.

The Barshop Institute hosts a Training Program (T32) in the Biology of Aging, a Nathan Shock Center of Excellence, a Claude D. Pepper (OAIC) Center and a testing site for the NIA Interventions Testing Program. We offer highly competitive salaries, an outstanding start-up package, and an excellent environment for aging research. The city of San Antonio is located just south of the beautiful, scenic Texas Hill Country and offers a wealth of housing, leisure and cultural opportunities.

Interested individuals should apply online at https://uthscsa.taleo.net/careersection/ex/jobsearch.ftl?lang=en&portal=101430233 and remit a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and three reference letters.
