University of Texas Health at San Antonio

Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine

We are seeking outstanding candidates at all tenure-track or tenure levels for a faculty position in Biochemistry. All areas will be considered, but we are particularly interested in structural biology (X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM, NMR, or other biophysical approaches) and research that fits with our strategic focus on cancer, aging, infectious disease and diabetes. The Department houses University-supported core facilities in Macromolecular Structure and Interactions [NMR Spectroscopy, X-ray Crystallography, Surface Plasmon Resonance, Calorimetry (ITC, DSC)], Mass Spectrometry (proteomics and metabolomics), and the Center for Innovative Drug Discovery (High Throughput Screening and Medicinal Chemistry). (http://biochem.uthscsa.edu/core_facilities.php). 

UT Health San Antonio, comprised of Medical, Graduate, Dental, Nursing and Health Profession schools, is home to the Nathan Shock Center for Aging, an NCI-designated cancer center and NIH Clinical Translational Science Award and the Center for Neuroscience. San Antonio is the 7th largest city in the U.S., with a historical downtown, diverse entertainment and restaurants on the Riverwalk, a vibrant economy, affordable housing and easy access to the scenic Texas Hill Country, with its many recreational opportunities.

Applicants must have high quality peer-reviewed publications and demonstrated ability to secure extramural funding. The position offers a generous start-up package, significant scientific resources and the potential for unique additional recruitment funds from the UT System and the State of Texas. Successful applicants will join a multidisciplinary team of 20 faculty in Biochemistry and Structural Biology (http://www.biochem.uthscsa.edu/), and will be expected to develop collaborative research programs, serve as mentors for students and research fellows and contribute to teaching in our graduate and professional programs. We are committed to a culturally and gender diverse faculty and all qualified applicants will receive consideration. The UT Health Science Center is designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution.
