The Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School seeks applicants for a tenured or tenure track faculty position. Our faculty is committed to tackling significant biological questions at a molecular level, with research programs spanning a broad range of topics. In this new period of growth, we are recruiting faculty members working to elucidate important biological mechanisms, placing special emphasis on integrative methods and research using the physical sciences (physics, chemistry, math and engineering) to solve fundamental molecular problems in biology. We are an interactive group who encourages research at the interface of multiple disciplines, the development of enabling technologies, and team science. More information about the department can be found on our website .
We are searching for a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual, committed to diversity, creativity, and collaboration, to join our team of actively engaged faculty. The successful candidate will develop and lead an internationally-recognized extramurally-funded research program, contribute to our missions of education, inclusion and service, and play an active role in the Department as we expand in a new phase of growth. Qualified applicants will have earned a Ph.D. in a life or physical science discipline and have a demonstrated track record of outstanding accomplishment.
