Faculty Position in the Biology of Rehabilitation, Exercise, and/or Movement in Musculoskeletal Disease, Development, or Regeneration.
Duke University’s Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Cell Biology invite applications for a tenure track faculty position in the field of exercise and/or rehabilitation as it relates to musculoskeletal biology. The ideal candidate will have a PhD, MD, both, or the equivalent and significant postdoctoral or faculty experience. They should have a record of outstanding scientific accomplishments and a well-developed research plan in a relevant research discipline such as: bone biology, skeletal stem cell biology, skeletal regeneration, cartilage biology and arthritis, muscle/tendon biology and regeneration, musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorder research, or the basic science of exercise and rehabilitation. An appointment at any academic level is available depending on the expertise and track record of the successful candidate. The successful candidate will complement and enhance our substantial existing strengths in exercise science, physical and occupational therapy, sports medicine, cell biology, orthopaedics, sarcoma, bioengineering, developmental biology, and musculoskeletal research utilizing a combination of in vivo and in vitro models. Our complement of researchers is poised to enhance programmatic research in rehabilitation in regeneration in the musculoskeletal system. We expect the successful candidate to initiate and maintain an original, competitive, and independently funded research program. Interested candidates should submit application materials including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of accomplishments and future research goals (2-3-page narrative), electronic reprints of up to three recent articles, and arrange to have up to three letters of reference provided. Applications will be considered upon receipt, but will close 7, November 2022.
