Faculty Recruitment in the Department of Physiology and the Cardiovascular Institute

The Department of Physiology and the Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seek candidates for faculty positions in the tenure track at the Assistant and Associate Professor ranks. Applicants must have a PhD. and/or M.D. Teaching responsibilities include graduate and medical student instruction and training graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Research responsibilities include developing a successful extramurally-supported research program. We seek investigators with research programs in molecular, cellular, or organismal physiology relevant to the cardiovascular system. Areas of interest include mitochondrial biology, cardiovascular metabolism, mechanotransduction, calcium signaling, and regenerative biology; research excellence will be weighed more strongly than specific research interests.  Investigators with established research programs grounded in fundamental mechanistic investigation that are positioned to move into early stage translation are encouraged to apply. The Penn CVI provides an outstanding environment for conducting disease-oriented research emphasizing heart failure, vascular disease, and genetic/epigenetic origins of cardiovascular disease.  The combined research environments of the Department of Physiology and CVI are bolstered by extensive shared resources, including Super-Resolution Imaging, Muscle Physiology and Mechanics, Small Animal Cardiovascular Phenotyping, and Metabolomics cores.
