TENURE-TRACK & TENURED POSITIONS
Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor
The Department of Pharmacology at the University of Minnesota invites applications to fill tenured and tenure-track faculty positions. Our current faculty direct research programs focused on discovery in the areas of neuropharmacology and addiction, cancer, immunology, inflammation, and infectious disease. We hope to build within these areas of strength while recruiting individuals with active interest in the areas of drug discovery and development, structural and/or computational biology, and clinical investigation. Required applicant qualifications include a PhD with relevant postdoctoral training in the biomedical sciences; applicants with MD or MD/PhD degrees will also be considered. Candidates for tenure-track Assistant Professor positions must have a compelling vision for an independent research program and a solid research publication record in this area. Candidates for tenured Associate Professor or Professor positions must have a record of sustained funding and publication, as well as a commitment to collaborative research and mentorship. Individuals from historically underrepresented groups in STEM and medicine, including women, minorities, qualified persons with disabilities, and protected veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
