Northern Arizona University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in Molecular Genetics in the Department of Biological Sciences, with an expected start date of August 2020.
The position is broadly defined and candidates may include researchers that leverage human cells/tissue or model organisms as a research focus to address developmental, physiological, genetic, epigenetic and environmental interactions in generating phenotypes, de novo pathway construction, and mechanisms of regulation across levels of biological organization. Candidates that employ wet bench, bioinformatic, and evolutionary approaches (e.g., cellular and molecular techniques, transcriptomics, genomics, metagenomics, metabolomics, comparative organismal evolution) to explore the molecular mechanisms of organism health and development are encouraged to apply. A successful candidate will: (1) contribute to the teaching mission of the Department of Biological Sciences to educate students and trainees in Biological and Biomedical Sciences, including through mentoring of undergraduate, M.S. and Ph.D. students, and postdoctoral fellows; (2) maintain an independent research program that is supported by awards from extramural agencies; and (3) perform service for the department, university, and profession.
Review of will begin November 25
