FACULTY POSITIONS AT SCRIPPS INSTITUTION OF OCEANOGRAPHY AND SKAGGS SCHOOL OF PHARMACY AND PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES, UC SAN DIEGO – Marine Natural Products and Chemical Biology

Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) and the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science (SSPPS) at UC San Diego (http://scripps.ucsd.edu) invite applications for two academic professorial positions as listed below - one junior faculty position jointly at SIO and SSPPS, and a second position at any level solely at SIO. We seek motivated, broad-thinking scientists/educators to establish vigorous research programs and provide intellectual leadership in their field while complementing existing expertise at SIO, SSPPS and other UC San Diego departments. SIO is a world-renowned institution for Earth and ocean science research with approximately 200 principal investigators. The SSPPS is one of the premier schools for pharmaceutical sciences in the US with strong multifaceted programs in drug discovery. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body. Both departments are interested in candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to inclusion by providing leadership in teaching, mentoring, research, and service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment. Successful candidates will be expected to demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence at the undergraduate and/or graduate levels, develop new courses that promote student knowledge of marine natural products and chemical biology, and train the next generation of researchers.
