TENURE–TRACK ASSISTANT/ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR POSITION

MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY

The Department of Chemistry at the University of Missouri is seeking to fill a tenure track position in medicinal chemistry beginning in Fall 2018. We anticipate that the position will be filled at the level of assistant professor, although appointment at the associate level may be considered. It is expected that the successful candidate will have the potential to build a funded, nationally recognized, research program focusing on the design of new medicinal agents within the framework of translational precision medicine. The position requires the ability to work collaboratively with physicians and others in achieving goals that are aimed at the diagnosis and/or treatment of diseases at the molecular level, including, but not limited to, novel drugs, sensors, or radioactive probes. Finally, the candidate will demonstrate the promise of establishing a strong record of teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2017 and continue until the position is filled.

The University of Missouri is fully committed to achieving the goal of a diverse and inclusive academic community of faculty, staff, and students. We seek individuals who are committed to this goal and our core campus values of respect, responsibility, discovery, and excellence. The University of Missouri is an equal Opportunity/Access/Affirmative Action/Pro Disabled & Veteran Employer.
