Tenured/Tenure-Track Associate and Assistant Professor Positions
The Center for Drug Discovery (CDD) at Northeastern University (NU) invites applications for two junior (pre-tenure Assistant Professor) and two senior (Tenure-on-Entry Associate or Full Professor) positions with projected start dates in 2023. The mission of the CDD is to engage in drug discovery and development that will lead to new medications, particularly involving brain disorders, infectious diseases, and cardiovascular disorders. To accomplish this, the CDD is directed to develop novel methodologies to improve drug discovery. Junior scientists using breakthrough technologies are welcome to apply as are senior faculty with internationally recognized programs and strong funding, whose expertise will complement activities of faculty affiliated with the CDD toward drug discovery.
A goal of this recruitment effort is to establish CDD as an NIH-funded Center of Excellence relevant to the mission of institutes that represent the Center’s membership. The CDD currently holds a NIDA T32 training grant for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows available to trainees of CDD faculty. The CDD also holds a NIDA R13 grant that sponsors the annual Chemistry and Pharmacology of Drug Abuse Conference at NU. The administrative team of the CDD provides pre- and post-award support to its members. The impact of the CDD is dependent on the outstanding quality of its membership and the strong interactions they develop with each other. Each senior CDD member is a founder of an active start-up company.
Interested candidates should apply with a cover letter, curriculum vita that includes a list of publications, statements addressing Research, Teaching and Equity, and names & contact information for at least three professional references.
