The University of Georgia announces a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor in the Center for Molecular Medicine (CMM) (https://cmm.uga.edu). The CMM is dedicated to better understanding the molecular and cellular basis of human disease and where possible, to use basic discovery to advance therapeutic development. To advance this mission, we are seeking applications from outstanding investigators with broad interests including the use of human cell-based disease models.

Candidates with interests in the following areas are encouraged to apply:

  • regenerative medicine
  • stem cells and organoids in human disease and development

All applicants must have a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) in Biology or a related field as well as a publication record appropriate for the rank. Applicants at the Assistant level must have at least two years relevant postdoctoral research experience and a well-developed research plan.

An attractive start-up package with highly competitive conditions of employment will be offered. Laboratory space will be located in the new Center for Molecular Medicine Building on Riverbend Road, adjacent to the Center for Complex Carbohydrate Research. The Center benefits from strong interactions with UGA researchers at the Center for Drug Discovery, Developmental Biology Alliance, CCRC as well as academic departments on campus.
