Endowed Professorship, Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology

The Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology of the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine invites applications from outstanding Ph.D. and/or M.D. scientists for the Leonard (Jim) Jefferson Endowed Professorship.

The Department has undergone a major expansion within the thriving new research environment of the Penn State College of Medicine and the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, located in Hershey. Under leadership of the Chair, Dr. Donald Gill, the Department is building in the broad areas of cellular, molecular and integrative approaches toward translational research in physiology. We are seeking an established or possibly emerging investigator with an excellent record of research accomplishment and funding, undertaking technologically advanced approaches toward translational research.

The search is open to applicants in many research areas including but not restricted to: molecular mechanisms of cell signaling, structure and function of channels/transporters and related diseases, redox signaling and mitochondrial dysfunction, and changes in contractile proteins in disease states. Candidates might have interests in protein structure-function and possible association with the new Cryo-EM Center in the College of Medicine. The successful candidate will likely complement departmental research interests in cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and metabolic disorders, aging and cancer.

The Department enjoys strong interactions with the Heart and Vascular Institute, the Cancer Institute, the Institute for Personalized Medicine, and the NIH-supported Clinical and Translational Science Institute within the Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Competitive start-up packages, recently renovated laboratory space, and strong core facilities, together provide an outstanding research environment. The Hershey Medical Center is a strong community of researchers and health professionals, situated in the delightful town of Hershey, with great schools, excellent housing, beautiful surroundings, and close to Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and statement of research plans within a single pdf document to: https://psu.jobs/job/77576. Questions may be directed to C&MPhysioSearch@hmc.psu.edu. Further information about the Department and the successful Hershey research environment is provided at the Department website: https://med.psu.edu/physiology.
