Moving forward, MSU has partnered with Henry Ford Health Sciences (https://www.henryford.com/campaign/hfmsu) to close the gap in health care outcomes for cancer patients based on race, ethnicity, gender and socioeconomic status.
 
The successful applicant must establish and maintain a vigorous, extramurally funded research program in their area of expertise, and contribute to teaching undergraduate, graduate, and/or professional students associated with the Department of Physiology.

Application review will begin September 23, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should apply online at careers.msu.edu/. Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three-page research statement, a one-page teaching statement, a statement on diversity, equity and inclusion, and names of three references. Questions concerning this position may be directed to Dr. Eran Andrechek, (andrech1@msu.edu), Search Committee Chair.
