The Department of BioMolecular Sciences in the School of Pharmacy at The University of Mississippi is inviting applications for two full time, 12-month, tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor of Pharmacology. We are seeking candidates with expertise in the fields of pharmacology, biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, physiology, or a related field who possess a record of distinguished and innovative research (as evidenced by a significant publication record and the potential to secure extramural funding) and a commitment to excellence in education. Candidates who are able to take advantage of existing resources and programs in neuroscience and glycobiology are encouraged to apply.

In addition to mentoring graduate students, undergraduate students, and post-doctoral fellows within the laboratory, faculty in the department will have teaching responsibilities in our degree programs, including the Doctorate of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program as well as B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. programs in Pharmaceutical Sciences.

The University of Mississippi is the flagship university for the State of Mississippi. A world-class public research university, the institution has a long history of producing leaders in public service, academics and innovative research. The School of Pharmacy is on the main campus in Oxford, a community of approximately 26,000 residents that has been recognized nationally as one of America’s best places to live. The Chronicle of Higher Education has named The University of Mississippi as one of the “Great Colleges to Work For.” Successful candidates will have opportunities to collaborate with the 19 full-time faculty within the Department of BioMolecular Sciences whose research emphases include pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, pharmacognosy, and environmental toxicology. Faculty have affiliations with the Research Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences and collaborative opportunities in the National Center for Natural Products Research.

We recognize that diversity of thought, background experiences, and individual identities helps foster educational and professional environments. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who are traditionally underrepresented in academia, and from all candidates who are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive academic community.
