Assistant/Associate Professor in Biochemistry

The Department of Biochemistry in the Emory University School of Medicine is seeking to hire Assistant/Associate Professors (tenure track) with expertise in biochemical/biophysical or related approaches. The Department of Biochemistry is a leading research division within the School of Medicine encompassing many areas of biochemistry, cell biology, molecular and structural biology, applied toward a better understanding of diverse, fundamental biological processes with potential or established links to human health and disease. These include but are not limited to the study of gene expression and control of protein synthesis, cell signaling, cell metabolism, molecular pathogenesis, and protein/nucleic acid modifications and interactions (for further details see: http://www.biochem.emory.edu/). Current Department faculty also bridge the School of Medicine’s basic research mission with other broader initiatives such as the Winship Cancer Institute and the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC). Opportunities for synergy with nearby institutions include Georgia Tech, our shared Department of Biomedical Engineering, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Department owns a number of instruments, including electron and fluorescence microscopes, mass spectrometers, biophysical and computational equipment and provides access to state-of-the-art technologies for biochemical research through Emory Integrated Core Facilities. 

Candidates should have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) and postdoctoral experience in biochemistry or closely related disciplines(s). The selected candidate will be expected to build a dynamic, independent research program that is designed to impact our basic understanding of biological processes that may one day contribute to defining the molecular basis of human diseases and identification of potential treatments. Selection criteria for this position will include a track record of scientific productivity, as evidenced by primary research publications, current and proposed future extramural funding, potential synergy with research at the University, as well as the candidate’s future research vision and potential to contribute the Department’s graduate and medical student teaching. 

Applicants should compile a single PDF file containing the following information: 

  1. Cover letter highlighting key qualifications.
  2. Current curriculum vitae with complete bibliography.
  3. Names and contact information of three references. 
  4. A research statement comprising descriptions of past accomplishments, including 3 publications that best epitomize the relevant skills of the applicant, and future research goals (not to exceed 3 pages).
  5. A description (≤ 1 page) of how you have encouraged or plan to encourage diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

Application materials and any questions should be emailed to: BiochemFacSearch@emory.edu Initial review of applications will begin no later than November 15, 2019. Applications received after this date will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

Emory University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Disability/Veteran Employer. Applications from women and underrepresented minority candidates are strongly encouraged.
