The Department of Biology (https://www.sas.rochester.edu/bio/) and the University of Rochester Aging Institute (https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/university-of-rochester-aging-institute.aspx ) invite applications for an open rank tenure-track faculty position. Tenure upon initial appointment for qualified senior level candidates will be considered, contingent on favorable review of the candidate’s dossier by the department, the dean and the Provost.

The biology of aging is a strategic priority at the University of Rochester. We are seeking outstanding candidates whose research programs address fundamental biological mechanisms of aging and who have demonstrated excellence, originality, and productivity in research. Our multidisciplinary biology department affords opportunities for intellectual interactions across diverse research disciplines, with faculty working in the areas of aging, intracellular transport, proteomics, chromatin, DNA repair, RNA biochemistry, transposable elements, biological imaging, synthetic biology, development, and evolutionary biology. This position will be supported by the University of Rochester Aging Institute, a university-wide initiative that integrates aging-related research, patient care, education and community research across campus.

The Department of Biology’s research and graduate programs are located in a world-class life sciences research campus that provides ample opportunities for interactions and collaborations with the adjacent University of Rochester Medical Center. In addition to the Aging Institute, faculty research is supported by a number of university initiatives including the Institute for Data Science, the Center for RNA Biology, the Stem Cell Institute, and the Cancer Center. Research activities across the University are supported by core facilities for imaging, proteomics, functional genomics, computation, small molecule screening, and flow cytometry.

Application materials should be uploaded at https://www.rochester.edu/faculty-recruiting. Complete applications should include: a cover letter; curriculum vitae including publication list; a statement of research accomplishments and future plans; a statement of teaching experience and interests; a statement of commitment to advancing equity and fostering an inclusive and diverse community in academia, including past work and future goals. Also provide copies of three papers. Instructions for supplying three letters of recommendation are on the application website. Applicant screening will start March 1 and continue until candidates for interviews have been chosen.

The University of Rochester is an Equal Opportunity Employer, has a strong commitment to diversity and actively encourages applications of candidates from groups underrepresented in higher education. The University of Rochester is responsive to the needs of dual career couples.
