Genome Function Tenure Related Positions
The Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) (www.molbio.uoregon.edu) at the University of Oregon announces two new tenure-track faculty positions (one assistant, one open rank) to expand in the area of genetics and epigenetics and form a Center for Genome Function. We are particularly interested in hiring faculty members using model systems to study fundamental problems in genetics (e.g. DNA repair, recombination and replication), epigenetics, chromatin, chromosome dynamics and RNA biology. This initiative is the first step in expanding our Institute, which includes faculty in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. We expect future expansions in other areas of molecular biology. Appointments may be made in any academic Department. Minimum qualifications are a Ph.D. in an appropriate field, commitment to excellent teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level, and an outstanding research record relating to genome function. Candidates should have the ability to work effectively with a diverse community.
