Faculty Recruitment Opportunities

Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU)

The Department of Chemical Physiology & Biochemistry at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon, USA invites applications for three open faculty positions.  The Department of Chemical Physiology & Biochemistry (CPB) is a result of a recent merger of the Departments of Physiology & Pharmacology and Biochemistry & Molecular Biology.  The department catalyzes a strategic investment in new opportunities in Physiology, Chemical Biology, Biochemistry and Structural Biology. 

For all positions, we seek individuals with a Ph.D. and a track record of excellent publications and demonstrated ability to acquire independent funding, who will develop an independent and vibrant research program, collaborate well with the current investigators and contribute to the teaching of graduate students. OHSU offers a highly interactive research environment and immediate access to core facilities for various imaging modalities, cryo-electron microscopy, deep sequencing, proteomics, metabolomics, and more.

Assistant Professor in Chemical Biology (position #CB8893)

CPB invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position from individuals interested in merging chemical biology and physiology with the goal to develop and use molecular techniques that will further our understanding of diseases and their underlying mechanisms. Preference will be given to applicants with a research record in organic chemistry/chemical biology as well as neurophysiology, endocrinology and metabolism, cardiovascular physiology or cancer biology.

Assistant Professor in Physiology (position #PH1411)

CPB invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position from individuals applying cutting-edge techniques to the investigation of systems physiology. Preference will be given to applicants with a research record in neurophysiology, endocrinology, metabolism, cardiovascular or pulmonary physiology.
