The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) seeks outstanding applicants for a tenure-leading, twelve-month faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor.

We encourage applications from all fields broadly comprising pharmaceutical sciences, but applicants engaged in computational drug discovery/medicinal chemistry, drug delivery/nanomedicine, and molecular modeling/biophysics are of particular interest. Applicants must have a doctoral degree in a relevant scientific discipline such as Pharmaceutical Science, Chemistry, Biochemistry, or Bioengineering. Post-doctoral experience (or equivalent) is also required. This experience should demonstrate productivity in the applicant’s proposed area of research and the ability to establish an independent research program garnering strong national and international recognition as well as enhancing both basic and translational pharmaceutical research at UNMC. The successful applicant is expected to be committed to teaching at a high level within the professional Pharm.D., graduate Ph.D., and undergraduate B.S. programs and develop graduate courses in their area of research expertise.

We strongly encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply, especially those underrepresented in the sciences.

Applications must be submitted online at: https://unmc.peopleadmin.com/postings/73819. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. For full consideration, applications should be received by October 1. Relevant inquiries may be directed to the Chair of the Search Committee, Don Ronning, at don.ronning@unmc.edu.
