The Department of Medicine’s Division of Molecular Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School is seeking to fill a research tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor. This position will work closely with Dr. Peter Crawford, Director of Molecular Medicine and Associate Chair of Research for the Department of Medicine.
Candidates must have completed a doctoral program of biomedical science and at least four years of formal post-doctoral training in molecular cell biology, metabolism, and physiology. Ability to utilize the University of Minnesota’s mouse physiology, flow cytometry, and microscopic imaging facilities, including the application of methods that address immune cell metabolism and signaling in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and atherosclerosis in genetically targeted mouse models, with a plan to translate to human studies, are highly desirable. The most competitive candidates will also demonstrate the ability to analyze and publish data gathered as described above, and have demonstrated success with grant funding. It is expected that the candidate seeks expeditious attainment of senior author peer-reviewed scientific publications and independent extramural grant support. The most competitive candidates will also have experience teaching or mentoring undergraduate and graduate researchers and consulting with other scientists on cell and tissue injury in disease states.
It will focus on targeted analytical chemistry and metabolic flux analysis in mammalian systems. The position will include a focused interest on the role of the liver in disease pathogenesis.
The candidate is also expected to teach and perform research training of medical and graduate students as well as participation in the Department of Medicine’s annual research retreat. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on the Department of Medicine’s faculty compensation plan, which includes incentive pay.
About the Division of Molecular Medicine The Department of Medicine's Division of Molecular Medicine consists of faculty members who share the common goal of using molecular approaches to the understanding of human disease. A major theme in the division is the use of mouse models to investigate human diseases. Although the division is research-oriented, individual faculty carry out clinical and teaching activities in the Department of Medicine and in various subspecialties. The division serves as a common interdisciplinary corridor for research-oriented faculty and students in the MD, PhD program. The division is dedicated to better understanding the molecular and cellular basis of human disease and translating this into new diagnostics and therapeutics. To advance this mission, we are currently seeking applications from outstanding investigators who will be appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track).
