Assistant Professor - Physiology Systems Biology
The Department of Integrative Biology at the University of Colorado Denver seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member in Physiology at the rank of Assistant Professor. The department seeks a colleague that studies physiological systems and processes at multiple levels of biological organization, using cutting-edge omic (e.g. genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic) approaches and other molecular systems biology tools. Preference will be given to those who engage undergraduate and graduate students in basic research within a strong integrative biology framework. We are actively seeking faculty whose research, teaching, and service demonstrate their commitment to inclusion and equity of under-represented individuals in STEM.
The successful candidate is expected to establish a productive, externally funded research program, and to excel in inclusive teaching and mentoring to a diverse undergraduate and graduate student population. Candidates will teach courses in their area of expertise, including courses relevant to medical and allied health fields (e.g., Human Physiology, Comparative Physiology, Anatomy, Endocrinology, Neurobiology, Reproductive Biology, Immunology, Toxicology, etc.).
Competitive applicants will contribute to the CU Denver and the Department of Integrative Biology mission to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM education. Our student body of 15,000 is diverse: for our undergraduates, 52% percent are women, 44% are students of color, and 51% of freshmen are 1st generation students. CU Denver is also listed on G.I. Jobs “Military Friendly Schools” list. CU Denver is a member of The National Science Foundation’s Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation, and a recipient of a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Inclusive Excellence Grant for enhancing equity in STEM education. Diversity and inclusion are embedded in all aspects of campus life, described further at: http://www.ucdenver.edu/about/departments/odi/diversitymatters.
The Department of Integrative Biology is on a growth trajectory, and offers competitive start-up packages and modern research facilities. Sponsored research is supported by a diverse array of local, state, and federal partners. The Biology Major is the largest undergraduate program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Our PhD and Masters programs in Integrative and Systems Biology encourage multi-disciplinary faculty participation from across the CU Denver Campus, Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and the Anschutz Medical Campus.
Applicants should provide evidence of past efforts and future plans to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the cover letter, research, and/or teaching statements. Review of applications will begin on November 30, 2018, and will continue until the position is filled.
