The University of Missouri (MU) invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in the Department of Biochemistry. Both positions will be in areas of fundamental biochemistry, one focused on plant biochemistry, and one focused on biomedical problems. Candidates should have an earned doctorate and the ability to lead a federally funded research group. Applications at the Assistant Professor level are encouraged. Candidates at a higher level will be considered if there is a record of extramural research funding, publications, teaching, and service expected of tenured faculty at a research-intensive university, and such candidates in Plant Biochemistry will be considered for the O’Dell endowed professorship.
The department has an undergraduate teaching mission in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CAFNR), provides pre-clinical training in the School of Medicine, and supports graduate education in both units. As a department in a Land Grant University that bridges two colleges, the Department of Biochemistry is home to fundamental molecular science and to its translation into both agricultural and biomedical applications. Areas of interest include fundamental biochemistry and/or applications such as synthetic biology; metabolic engineering; transgenic technology; and spatio-temporal biochemistry involving transcriptomics, proteomics, and other genome-wide approaches. The candidates will join highly collaborative research communities in plant biology and precision medicine that are supported by outstanding core facilities.
