The Medical University of South Carolina is located in the charming city of Charleston, which maintains a unique blend of vibrant historical culture with a surging high-tech economy, and a balanced lifestyle that includes beautiful beaches and other outdoor activities. Charleston has been named the Top U.S. Small City for the tenth consecutive year by Conde Nast Traveler 2020 Readers' Choice Awards and is consistently given top honors as a most desirable place to live.
Interested candidates should send a copy of their curriculum vitae, cover letter, and a research statement as a single PDF document to Denis Guttridge, PhD at guttridg@musc.edu. The deadline to apply is December 15, 2021.
