The Chemistry Department at Scripps Research invites applications for a tenure-stream faculty position at the Assistant Professor level. We are seeking outstanding scientists in the areas of Chemical Biology, Organic Chemistry, or Biochemistry, broadly defined. Candidates should demonstrate a high level of productivity in their field of interest. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally recognized extramurally funded research program. The Department of Chemistry is strongly committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, together with the Scripps Research shared values of innovation and excellence.

The Scripps Research Institute — one of the world's largest, private, non-profit research organizations — is at the forefront of basic biomedical science, with faculty undertaking medical research that seeks to comprehend the most fundamental processes of life. Over the last decades, the institute has established its core strengths in biomedical research at the interfaces between chemical and biological sciences.  The institute is organized into two campuses, one in La Jolla, California, and one in Jupiter, Florida.  Scripps recently formed a strategic alliance with Calibr, a not-for-profit drug discovery institute, providing a link between the basic research of Scripps and the translational research of Calibr.  Scripps has a vibrant Ph.D. program that is ranked in the top 10 in Chemical and Biological Sciences.  Scripps has a collegial and collaborative environment, where faculty, students and postdoctoral fellows can freely interact across campuses and disciplines to form synergy in emerging areas of research.

Candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent in a relevant discipline, and an outstanding record of research that demonstrates originality in addressing significant questions. Successful candidates will be expected to establish an active research group, be an interactive member of the faculty, and participate in interdisciplinary research and training.

A bicoastal Search Committee will review the applications.  Applicants will be selected for interviews on a specific campus starting immediately.
