Responsibilities:         The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine in the Department of Medicine at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine invites applications for a tenure track Associate/Full Professor with an extramurally funded, independent, primarily wet bench-based research program in the area of pulmonary biology. Research areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, airway biology, asthma, sepsis and acute lung injury, lung immunity, pulmonary vascular biology, stem cell biology, or lung cancer.

The successful candidate will have a visionary research program that synergizes with existing research programs at the Larner College of Medicine.

Several core facilities are available at the University of Vermont (e.g., microscopy, flow cytometry & cell sorting, genomics/transcriptomics, proteomics, biostatistics, data science, small animal vivarium, and a BSL3 facility) to complement the faculty member’s independent research program.
