The Boston College Biology Department is recruiting a tenure-track faculty member (open rank) with research and teaching interests in Developmental Biology. Candidates whose research programs synergize with department research interests in regeneration or organismal/evolutionary development will be given special consideration. The Biology Department is unified by common interests in answering fundamental biological questions, a commitment to undergraduate education, and mentorship of graduate students in the Biology PhD Program. In alignment with the University’s commitment to building a culturally diverse, equitable and inclusive academic community, we seek applicants who are committed to the advancement of historically underrepresented and marginalized communities in the sciences.

The successful candidate is expected to establish a rigorous, externally funded research program that contributes to or complements existing departmental strengths in cell biology, molecular biology and microbiology.  Applicants must demonstrate a strong record of research productivity, and a passion for teaching and mentoring PhD students and undergraduate students in the biosciences. Successful candidates will receive a competitive startup package, including research and equipment funds, laboratory space, IT/computational support, grant preparation and management assistance, and access to shared resources and state-of-the-art core facilities including imaging/microscopy (including super-resolution microscopy), NexGen sequencing, flow-cytometry/FACS, NMR, and mass-spectrometry. All new faculty members receive dedicated mentoring to help ensure success at Boston College.

The Boston College Biology Department is home to a dynamic research community embedded in a highly ranked, R1 liberal arts university located close to downtown Boston and Cambridge. The surrounding region constitutes a global research hub, comprising numerous universities, research institutes, biotechnology firms and pharmaceutical companies. The Biology Department hosts a graduate program in the biosciences; provides lecture and laboratory courses and research opportunities for undergraduates majoring in biology and biochemistry; and actively participates in the Gateway Scholars Program for underserved minorities and first-generation college students majoring in STEM fields at Boston College. Faculty and their research teams also have access to new facilities and interdisciplinary collaborations provided by The Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society.

How to Apply

Candidates at any rank (Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor) are encouraged to apply. Applications should include a cover letter, a resume/CV, a statement of research accomplishments and goals (3 pages), a statement of teaching and mentoring philosophy (1-2 pages) and a statement of diversity, inclusion and outreach (1+ page). Applicants at the Assistant Professor level should provide contact information for three references. Applications received by Nov 30, 2022 will be given full consideration.
