Faculty Position in Metabolism Research
Children’s Medical Center Research Institute (CRI) at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX seeks applications for tenure-track faculty position in metabolism research. Outstanding investigators at any rank will be considered. Appointment rank will be commensurate with academic accomplishments and experience. Candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degree and the ability to direct independently-funded research programs. Areas of specific research interests include human diseases characterized by metabolic dysfunction (e.g. cancer and Mendelian inborn errors of metabolism). Faculty recruited through this mechanism will join CRI’s Genetic and Metabolic Disease Program (GMDP), directed by Dr. Ralph DeBerardinis. Highlights of the GMDP include:
- A robust basic research environment dedicated to understanding the genetic and metabolic basis of human disease.
- Integration with clinical programs in genetic and metabolic diseases at Children’s Medical Center, providing outstanding opportunities for gene discovery, translational research and therapeutic trials.
- A state-of-the-art mass spectrometry facility dedicated to metabolomics and isotope tracing.
UT Southwestern Medical Center has a long and distinguished history of excellence in disease-related basic science research, particularly in metabolism. CRI, founded in 2011 as a joint venture between UT Southwestern and Children’s Medical Center of Dallas and directed by Sean J. Morrison, Ph.D., is recruiting outstanding individuals dedicated to solving fundamental problems in biology and disease. CRI is a dynamic, stimulating, and highly collaborative environment focusing on stem cell biology, cancer, and the genetic and metabolic basis of human disease.
Please submit a CV, a 3-page summary of past accomplishments and research plans, and ask three references to submit letters by November 1, 2019 to CRIApplicants@utsouthwestern.edu.
