The Division of Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy in the College of Pharmacy at The Ohio State University (https://pharmacy.osu.edu/medicinal-chemistry-pharmacognosy) invites applications for two full-time tenure track academic appointments at the level of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor. We are looking for basic scientists with outstanding academic credentials and a record of scholarly productivity with a focus in cancer research, including drug discovery, synthetic medicinal chemistry, computational chemistry, high-throughput or high-content screening of small molecules, or chemical biology. The successful candidates will join faculty in the College of Pharmacy with broad interests in drug discovery and development, pharmaceutics, and pharmacology and will be well positioned to collaborate with a wide array of cancer researchers within the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) and across the University.

The Ohio State University is one of the largest public Universities with 200+ academic majors, strong programs in graduate education, and significant interdisciplinary interactions between the College of Pharmacy (https://pharmacy.osu.edu/) and all other colleges, especially the College of Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the College of Engineering. This is complemented by an exceptional Comprehensive Cancer Center (https://cancer.osu.edu/), which provides the infrastructure and the resources for strong interdisciplinary interactions with a focus on translation, in a collegial and supportive research environment. The 19 CCC shared resources are state of the art with cutting-edge technologies including the latest in next-generation sequencing and single-cell analyses (https://cancer.osu.edu/for-cancer-researchers/resources-for-cancer-researchers/shared-resources). In addition, 2019 marked the launch of The Pelotonia Institute for Immuno-Oncology (PIIO) (https://cancer.osu.edu/piio), a comprehensive research initiative with a $100-plus million investment. The Ohio State University is located in Columbus, a vibrant, rapidly developing, and affordable city of almost one million, which was recognized by Money Magazine as one of the “6 best big cities” in the US.

Competitive start-up packages will be available to successful candidates to help them develop dynamic research programs. Additional funding is available through competitive, internal funding mechanisms administered by Pelotonia (https://pelotonia.org/), a grassroots annual bike ride that has raised over $211 million for cancer research at OSU. Pelotonia also supports new core equipment and select programmatic research efforts. The Ohio State University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer with a priority to increase diversity in the scientific workforce. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status or protected veteran status.

Applications should include a Letter of Interest, Curriculum Vitae, and Statement of Current and Future Research Plans, as well as the contact information of four academic references. Applications should be sent prior to November 15, 2020 to: Amber Williams (williams.5449@osu.edu). Applicants will be considered on a rolling basis until the positions are filled.
