The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences in the College of Pharmacy, under the new leadership of Dr. Georgi V. Petkov, Professor and Chair, is seeking an applicant for a twelve-month full-time, tenure-track faculty position at the assistant, associate or full professor level. Dr. Petkov is currently building a research center with focus on benign urology (overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, underactive bladder), kidney disease, and vascular dysfunction.
The ideal candidate is expected to join this team effort with the goal of submitting NIH program project grants in urological and kidney diseases and potentially facilitate the establishment of NIH-funded George M. O’Brien Research Center in the State of Tennessee. The candidate does not necessarily have to have prior track record in urological/kidney research but may be someone who would bring new unique expertise to the field. The successful candidate is expected to have a strong NIH/federally-funded research program in an area related to the research strengths of the department, included but not limited to pharmacology, physiology, electrophysiology, ion channel research, urological research, smooth muscle function and regulation, renal (both kidney and lower urinary tract), drug discovery and development, gene therapy, epigenomics, metabolomics, nanotechnology or other related disciplines. The successful candidate is expected to have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree, the ability to maintain competitive extramural funding, a commitment to excellence in teaching in Pharm.D. and graduate programs and have excellent oral and written communication skills. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Applicants should have a demonstrated commitment to diversity and equal opportunity.
