TWO TENURE TRACK FACULTY POSITIONS IN MOLECULAR MEDICINE
The University of Georgia announces openings for two tenure track faculty positions in its new Center for Molecular Medicine (CMM). Development of the CMM complements UGA's recent thrust into human health which is marked by the opening of a new health sciences campus that includes a medical school campus operated in partnership with Georgia Health Sciences University as well as the rapidly expanding College of Public Health. The CMM, which is dedicated to better understanding the molecular and cellular basis of human disease as well as developing new disease diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines, is currently seeking applications from talented and accomplished investigators at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. Candidates utilizing cutting-edge molecular approaches in studies of human disease etiology, tissue regeneration and repair, cancer and stem cell biology, or the application of glycoscience to medicine are especially encouraged to apply.
Applicants for the Assistant level position must have a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent), at least two years relevant postdoctoral research experience, an outstanding publication record and a well-developed research plan. Applicants for the Associate position must have a Ph.D. with a demonstrated track record of outstanding independent research productivity over a span of at least 5 years. The successful candidates will be expected to establish a vibrant, extramurally funded research program. An attractive start-up package with highly competitive conditions of employment will be offered. The anticipated start date is August 2013.
To apply, submit a cover letter, CV, and a description of research interests to CMMSEARCH@ccrc.uga.edu electronically (indicate 'CMM Open Search' in the subject line). Applicants should arrange to have at least three letters of reference sent to: Open Search Committee Chair, c/o Ms. Lydia Shearer, Center for Molecular Medicine, University of Georgia, CCRC Building, 315 Riverbend Road, Athens, GA 30602-4712. Electronic letters of recommendation on letterhead are acceptable. Complete applications received by March 31, 2013 are assured full consideration.
