FACULTY POSITION IN THE DEPARTMENT OF BIOCHEMISTRY AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY, UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA HEALTH SCIENCES CENTER

Applications are invited for several faculty positions within the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Assistant and Associate Professor levels. Rank will be commensurate with experience. We seek individuals with a record of scientific accomplishment studying the biochemical mechanisms of neuro-degeneration, aging, metabolic regulation or structural biology. As a basic science department within the School of Medicine, we encourage applicants with a strong commitment to understanding the molecular basis of human health and disease. The candidate is also expected to have a strong commitment to medical and graduate education and participate in the teaching mission of the department.

The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center is an actively growing campus with seven (7) colleges and three (3) hospitals (OU Medical Center, OU Children’s Hospital and the Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center). The environment to conduct scientific research and interact with colleagues is excellent. The positions within the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology are part of a strategic plan to expand the relationship between departments and centers on campus. This includes the newly formed GeroScience Center (that includes a Nathan Shock Center of Excellence, a T32 Training program and GeroScience CoBRE), the NCI Designated Stephenson Cancer Center and the Harold Hamm Diabetes Center. Substantial startup funding for new and established researchers is available. Minimum qualifications are a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree and several years of productive postdoctoral research.
