Department of Pharmacology and Physiology
University of Rochester, School of Medicine and Dentistry
The Department of Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of Rochester invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank. We seek a creative, enthusiastic scientist with clear potential to secure extramural funding for their research program (active extramural funding is required for candidates for Associate Professor) who will synergize with the highly collaborative environment of the Department and the strategic initiatives of the Medical Center’s broader research community. The Department, which has added seven tenure-track faculty members over the past several years, offers outstanding research and graduate training environments. Established research strengths in the department revolve around cell signaling in the context of physiology and disease and include: calcium signaling, extracellular matrix and cell adhesion signaling, G protein-coupled receptor pharmacology and signaling, and ion channel structure and function. The successful applicant will receive a highly-competitive start-up package, generous laboratory space, and access to a wide range of state-of-the-art core facilities. The new faculty member will be expected to develop and maintain a vigorous, independent, externally funded research program and contribute to graduate student education and medical school teaching. The search committee is especially interested in candidates who, through their research, teaching, and/or service, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.
The University of Rochester Medical Center, the School of Medicine and Dentistry, and the adjacent Schools of Arts, Sciences and Engineering are part of a private, world-class research university, providing excellent opportunities for highly diverse, cross-disciplinary interactions and collaborations. Rochester is a vibrant, mid-sized city located in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, within driving distance of New York City, Toronto, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh. The city boasts a lively arts and culture scene and is home to the Eastman Theater, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, the International Jazz Festival, the Strong Museum of Play, and a wide variety of art and music festivals and fairs.
