As part of continuing growth in biology, the School of Biological Sciences (biosci.gatech.edu) at the Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for an open rank tenure-track faculty position in physiology. The position is open to research programs spanning from molecular, cellular through systems-level approaches to understanding physiological function in health and disease. We are particularly interested in applicants exploring any combination of modeling, computational, and experimental approaches to address fundamental questions about physiology across scales and interactions among function, behavior, and environment. Candidates will be favored if their research enhances the school's existing strengths in basic sensorimotor neurophysiology, movement science, neurorehabilitation, biomechanics and comparative biology. Successful candidates will engage with the Applied Physiology graduate program (https://biosciences.gatech.edu/graduate/phd-applied-physiology), the interdisciplinary Quantitative Biosciences Graduate Program (https://qbios.gatech.edu/), and others across the college and broader Institute (https://cos.gatech.edu/graduate-programs). Candidates must demonstrate all of the following: research productivity, academic experience and clear evidence of effective teaching in biological sciences.
