The Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences, an endowed basic science research center focusing on gene regulation, is recruiting to fill newly created Tenure-track Assistant Professor Positions.  We invite applications from outstanding candidates studying aspects of signaling, gene regulation, and genome function, especially in the areas of chromatin and transcription, epigenetics, nuclear endpoints of cellular signaling pathways, nuclear receptors, RNA biology, genome organization, and genome evolution.  We are interested in a wide variety of model systems and experimental approaches, including biochemistry, molecular biology, structural biology, animal models, genetics, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, and computational biology.  The Green Center’s research programs cover diverse areas of biology, including reproduction, development, endocrinology, stem cells, cancer, metabolism, inflammation, immunity, and neurobiology.

•   Focus 1: Signaling, chromatin, and gene regulation – a broad search for candidates using a wide array of experimental approaches to address fundamental questions in nuclear signaling, chromatin, transcription, epigenetics, and RNA biology.

•   Focus 2: Genomic, proteomic, bioinformatic, computational, and evolutionary approaches to understanding gene regulation - a more focused search in research areas using state-of-the-art methodologies that will connect to broader “omic” initiatives on campus.

The Green Center promotes and supports cutting-edge, integrative, and collaborative basic research, as well as strong connections between basic and clinical research.  Successful candidates will be housed in a newly renovated state-of-the-art research facility with a generous start-up package, and are expected to establish scientifically rigorous and externally funded research programs and participate in center and university teaching and training programs.  To learn more about the Green Center, visit: https://www.utsouthwestern.edu/education/medical-school/departments/green-center/.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. or equivalent in a relevant field of study, postdoctoral or comparable experience, and a demonstrated record of research excellence. Applicants should apply online at https://jobs.utsouthwestern.edu/ (search for Job ID 486395) and upload a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and a statement of planned research projects as pdf files.  Please indicate one of the two research areas listed above (Gene Regulation or Genomics) in your letter.  Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent directly to GreenCenter@UTSouthwestern.edu.  Collection and review of applications will commence October 1, 2020 and will continue during the 2020-2021 academic year until the position is filled, but applicants are encouraged to submit their materials as soon as possible.
