The Department of Cell Biology and Physiology at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine invites applications for a Tenure-track, Assistant or Associate Professor faculty position to build and sustain an active research program in cardiovascular physiology and disease. We are particularly interested in candidates with strong interests in basic biomedical research that complement existing departmental strengths in vascular biology, systemic and pulmonary hypertension, angiogenesis, ion channel physiology, signal transduction, cholesterol regulation, oxidant signaling, immunology, cellular metabolism, and mitochondrial biology. The department is home to the Minority Institutional Research Training Program (T32), which has been training graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in Cardiovascular Research for almost 30 years. The successful candidate will benefit from the exceptional opportunities for synergism and interactions with members of the four basic science departments, clinician-scientists in the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC), and the UNM Health Sciences Center signature programs, including the Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disease Signature Program

The major research programs within the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology include vascular physiology, pulmonary and systemic hypertension, vascular inflammation, cancer genetics and signaling, and neuronal development and angiogenesis in fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. Ongoing research programs focus on the study of molecular and cellular biology, cellular biochemistry, and fundamental biophysical and physiological processes and their relationship to human disease. The successful applicant will develop a rigorous and independent research program and participate in departmental activities including graduate and/or medical school teaching.
