The University of Minnesota (UMN) invites applications for tenure-track faculty recruiting in the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics within the University of Minnesota Medical School.  We seek applications in all areas of structural biology and biophysics including CryoEM, NMR, X-ray crystallography and spectroscopy.  Of particular interest are applications of structural biology relating to immunology and cancer biology.

Responsibilities: We seek dynamic individuals who will lead federally-funded research programs, contribute to medical, graduate and/or undergraduate education programs through instruction and research mentorship, and contribute to academic service on the campus and/or professionally.

Required Qualifications: An earned doctorate, MD or equivalent.

Preferred Qualifications: A record of research in an area of biomedically-relevant biochemistry that complements departmental strengths.  Applications at the Assistant Professor level are encouraged, but candidates at a higher level will be considered if there is evidence of continuous extramural research funding, high impact publications and excellence in teaching and service expected of tenured faculty at a research-intensive university.  A record of successful post-doctoral research; ability to communicate effectively in a research and educational setting; and evidence of past research collaborations or a willingness to work in related research areas is anticipated. 

Application: Please send a full CV, a 2-page research overview, a 1-page teaching statement, and a diversity statement to sbsearch@umn.edu. Three letters of recommendation that consider both research and teaching potential should be sent directly from the referee to the Faculty Search Committee at sbsearch@umn.edu.

University of Minnesota is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and is dedicated to creating and fostering a diverse academic environment.  We encourage  applications from individuals belonging to groups underrepresented in their respective fields, and others who would enrich and add unique perspectives to the University.
