MOLECULAR BIOLOGY & GENETICS FACULTY POSITIONS
A tenure-track faculty position is available at the Assistant/Associate Professor level in the Weill Institute with an academic appointment in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics (MBG) (http://www.mbg.cornell.edu). MBG currently has 30 faculty working in areas from cell biology, development, molecular biology, genomics and evolution to detailed structural analysis of cellular components.
Applicants for this position should be addressing fundamental questions in molecular cell biology (e.g. cell cycle control, cell signaling, regulation of the cytoskeleton, organelle biogenesis and function, etc.). Candidates exploiting model systems and specialized approaches, for example structural biology, biochemical reconstitution, high-resolution microscopy, are of special interest. However, outstanding candidates in any area of cell and molecular biology will be considered.
HOW TO APPLY: Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae (highlighting three to five publications with title and abstract), a research plan (two-three pages), a statement of teaching interests and three letters of recommendation to: http://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/1815.
