The Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology (http://www.mcmp.purdue.edu) invites applications for MULTIPLE tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks. Preference will be given to qualified candidates with strong programs in neuroscience that complement or strengthen the existing departmental focus areas, although outstanding candidates in cancer biology, immunology/infectious diseases, and/or medicinal chemistry will also be seriously considered.
The Department offers a unique multidisciplinary and collaborative environment with synergistic strengths in both chemistry and biology, spanning a wide range of topics including signal transduction, epigenetics, macromolecule structure and function, structural and computation biology, molecular pharmacology, systems biology, chemical biology, medicinal chemistry and drug discovery. The Department also contributes significantly to the NCI-designated Purdue University Center for Cancer Research (https://www.cancerresearch.purdue.edu/), Purdue Institute for Integrative Neuroscience (http://www.purdue.edu/discoverypark/pillars/integrative-neuroscience-center/index.php), Purdue Institute for Inflammation, Immunology and Infectious Disease (http://www.purdue.edu/discoverypark/pillars/pi4d/index.php), and Purdue Institute for Drug Discovery (http://www.purdue.edu/discoverypark/drug-discovery/).
Purdue University is investing more than $250 million in the life sciences over the next five years and offers state-of-the-art facilities for transgenic animals, imaging, genomics, bioinformatics, proteomic and metabolomics, NMR, X-ray crystallography, CryoEM, and chemical genomics. Faculty have the opportunity to train graduate students in the departmental and university-wide interdisciplinary programs. Highly competitive salary, start-up funds and laboratory space will be provided.
