Integrative Biology and Physiology

The UCLA Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor or higher. We seek applicants working in the area of cardiovascular physiology who are committed to training the next generation of scientists and who embrace the concept of collaboration, which is a strength of our UCLA community.  In addition, UCLA has a well-established cardiovascular theme (https://medschool.ucla.edu/cardiovascular).  In the cover letter, please state how your research will synergize with existing research programs in the Department and within the broader campus community.  The successful candidate will be expected to establish an internationally recognized, externally funded research program, in addition to participating in undergraduate and graduate teaching, training, and mentoring.  The undergraduate teaching involves contributing to a team-taught core physiology course for undergraduates.  The cardiovascular component of the course covers many topics including: cardiac anatomy, blood flow and vascular regulation, cardiomyocyte cell biology, myofilament organization and function, pacemaker activity, excitation-contraction coupling, electrocardiograms, pressure-volume relationships, parasympathetic and sympathetic control, Frank-Starling relationships, as well as basic principles of heart failure, arrhythmia, and atherosclerosis.  The applicant is expected to teach the cardiovascular component within the course and to also adapt a growth mindset to teaching excellence as part of the academic mission.  Junior faculty in the Department are supported with multiple, well-qualified mentors during their path to tenure.

Please submit CV and statements of research, teaching, mentoring and contributions to equity, diversity, and inclusion. before September 15, 2019, to https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/JPF04523. Competitive candidates will have a PhD or equivalent degree within the fields of biology. The faculty in the Department of Integrative Biology and Physiology embraces excellence in diversity and inclusion through the mentoring of under-represented students.  Individuals with a history of mentoring students under-represented in the sciences are encouraged to apply and to describe their experience in a cover letter. Queries can be addressed to: Rachelle H. Crosbie, Chair of Integrative Biology and Physiology (rcrosbie@physci.ucla.edu).

UCLA is California's largest university, with an enrollment of nearly 38,000 undergraduate and graduate students.  The Biosciences at UCLA has more than 300 faculty members, includes many top ten ranked departments, and is consistently in the top ten in NIH funding. As a campus with a diverse student body, we encourage applications from women, minorities, and individuals with a history of mentoring under-represented groups in the sciences.
