Job DescriptionThe Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences, an endowed basic science research center focusing on gene regulation, is recruiting to fill newly created Tenure-track Assistant Professor Positions. We invite applications from outstanding candidates studying any aspect of signaling, gene regulation, and genome function. We are interested in a wide variety of experimental and computational approaches and model systems. The Green Center’s research programs cover diverse areas of biology, including reproduction, development, endocrinology, stem cells, cancer, metabolism, inflammation, immunity, and neurobiology.
• Focus 1: Signaling, chromatin, and gene regulation – a broad search for candidates using a wide array of experimental approaches to address fundamental questions in nuclear signaling, chromatin, transcription, epigenetics, and RNA biology.
• Focus 2: High throughput, computational, or evolutionary approaches to understanding gene regulation - a focused search in research areas using state-of-the-art methodologies that will connect to broader “omic” initiatives on campus.
The Green Center promotes and supports cutting-edge, integrative, and collaborative basic research, as well as strong connections between basic and clinical research. Successful candidates will be housed in a newly renovated state-of-the-art research facility with a generous start-up package, and are expected to establish scientifically rigorous and externally funded research programs and participate in center and university teaching and training programs.
