Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Musculoskeletal Biology

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery (http://keck.usc.edu/orthopaedic-surgery/) is recruiting exceptional candidates at all levels who are exploring basic and translational aspects of musculoskeletal biology. A research focus centered on cartilage, ligament, bone or tendon tissues; musculoskeletal regenerative medicine; or joint biology is preferred. The department research labs are housed in the Harlyne J. Norris Cancer Research Tower within the Keck School of Medicine of USC. Excellent resources and strong collaborative opportunities exist across various USC schools and institutes, in particular with the Eli and Edythe Broad CIRM Center for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine. In addition to the translational mission of the department, faculty members play a critical role in the university’s educational mission. Successful applicants will receive a generous start-up package.

The University of Southern California strongly values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity in employment. Women and men, and members of all racial and ethnic groups, people with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.

Applications should include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, brief 2-3 page outline of research past, present and future, and four letters of reference. The deadline for receipt of applications is December 1, 2018. Please send your application to:
