Assistant Professor (Stem Cell/Regeneration Biologist) (Tenure Track)
The Department of Biological Sciences at Louisiana State University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in all areas of stem cell and regenerative biology, including neurobiology, developmental biology, and molecular-cell biology. Biological Sciences is a large and dynamic department, with research ranging across all levels of biological organization, and the successful candidate will complement these strengths. Researchers utilizing non-traditional model organisms and those who would appreciate joining diverse and interactive faculty are especially encouraged to apply. In addition to the Department of Biological Sciences, opportunities for collaboration research are available at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, the LSU College of the Coast & Environment, the LSU College of Agriculture, and the LSU Pennington Biomedical Research Center. Successful candidates will be expected to establish and maintain a vigorous, extramurally funded research program and to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences or related field, a successful track record of productive research and publication, and postdoctoral experience.
Our department is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty, and we strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities, veterans, and other members of groups underrepresented in science. We seek candidates whose research, teaching, or service has prepared them to contribute to diversity and inclusion in higher education. Candidates should include a statement describing how they will promote an inclusive learning environment, and how their scholarship and mentoring practices support a diverse academic community.
An offer of employment is contingent on a satisfactory pre-employment background check. Application deadline is December 15, 2020, or until a candidate is selected. https://lsu.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/LSU/job/0520-Life-Sciences-Building/Assistant-Professor_R00050896
