The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) in the McGovern Medical School of the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) is seeking to recruit Tenure-track Assistant/Associate Professors with research interests in fundamental biochemistry/molecular biology, cell biology, integrative/systems biology, and related disciplines. The current BMB faculty are well funded and conduct innovative research to address important biological questions, including but not limited to structural basis of biological function at atomic and single-molecule resolutions, fundamental biochemical and molecular processes in cellular systems, and mouse models for disease and intervention (for further details see: https://med.uth.edu/bmb/ ). The BMB Department is also host to several research Centers of Excellence, including Structural Biology Imaging, Membrane Biology, and Pulmonary research. The Department is part of the UT MD Anderson UTHealth Graduate School at Houston, with an active and diverse graduate student body.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree and successful postdoctoral experience in basic and/or translational research. We welcome applicants with broad research interests and approaches, ranging from biochemistry/molecular biology to integrative and systems biology. Research utilizing mouse as a model system is encouraged but not required. Evaluation criteria include a track record of scientific productivity as evidenced by primary research publications, current and future extramural funding, collaborative opportunities within the BMB department and UTHealth, as well as the candidates’ potential to contribute to graduate and medical student education.
