The Boston College Biology Department seeks outstanding candidates for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of Cell and Developmental Biology. Applicants are sought at the Assistant Professor level; however, exceptionally strong candidates will be considered at the Associate Professor level. The university provides competitive startup funds and research space with the expectation that the successful candidate will establish, or bring to the university, a vigorous, funded research program. Special consideration will be given to candidates whose research program synergizes with current faculty interests. We especially encourage applicants whose research utilizes embryonic model systems, those who study developmental neurobiology, and/or those who work at the interface of biophysics and cell biology. The successful candidate will join an active and expanding department with current strengths in cytoskeletal regulation, developmental biology, cancer biology, as well as microbiology, infectious disease, and computational biology.

The university is situated on a beautiful campus dating back to the beginning of the twentieth century and is closely located to downtown Boston and Cambridge. The Biology Department has strong ongoing collaborative efforts with other departments including Chemistry and Physics, surrounding institutes including BU, Harvard, MIT, Northeastern University and Tufts University, and has state of the art (core-) facilities including next-gen sequencing, cleanrooms for nanofabrication, FACS, microscopy (including super-resolution microscopy), microfluidics, robotics, NMR and mass-spec. Moreover, the university has recently announced its decision to establish an interdisciplinary Institute for Integrated Science and Society, and the building is scheduled for construction beginning Spring 2019.
