Require Teaching and Research Faculty in The University of Virginia | Charlottesville , Virginia-USA


The University of Virginia is distinctive among institutions of higher education. Founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, the University sustains the ideal of developing, through education, leaders who are well-prepared to help shape the future of the nation. The University is public, while nourished by the strong support of its alumni. It is also selective; the students who come here have been chosen because they show the exceptional promise Jefferson envisioned.
The University of Virginia remains the No. 2 best public university in the 2009 edition of the U.S. News and World Report rankings. In the 12 years since U.S. News  began ranking public universities as a separate category, U.Va. has ranked either No. 1 or No. 2. U.Va. continues to rank in the Top 25 among the best of all national universities, public and private.

Position: Teaching and Research Faculty
Department: Department of Pharmacology

Job Description:
The Department of Pharmacology at the University of Virginia seeks to fill two tenure-eligible positions. Rank is dependent upon qualifications.

The first position seeks candidates investigating how ion channels relate to physiological systems or pathological processes. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, molecular genetics and/or cell biology of ion channel regulation (expression, posttranslational modification) in the context of integrated cardio-respiratory, endocrine or neuronal network function.

The second position seeks candidates exploring genetic networks, signal transduction pathways, and mechanisms involved in regulation of metabolism and the underlying pathologies of atherosclerosis, diabetes, obesity or hypertension. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, transcriptional regulation, signal transduction networks important for metabolic control, and the role of inflammation in the pathology of metabolic disease.

The successful candidates will join growing groups of investigators utilizing molecular and physiological approaches to study ion channel biology or metabolism with an emphasis on the identification and validation of new drug targets. Candidates exploring integrative approaches including in vitro, in vivo and/or systems biological models using cutting-edge technology are preferred. Both positions require a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent.

Faculty will enjoy superb resources including state-of-the-art core facilities, a generous start-up package and a strong collaborative research environment.

To apply, candidates should visit Jobs@UVa on the web at https://jobs.virginia.edu. For the first position, how ion channels relate to physiological systems or pathological processes, search on Posting Number 0606166; for the second position exploring genetic networks, signal transduction pathways, and mechanisms involved in regulation of metabolism and the underlying pathologies of atherosclerosis, diabetes, obesity or hypertension, search on Posting Number 0606266.

For either position, candidates must complete a Candidate Profile on line, attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae, two-page statement of research goals & interests, and contact information for three references. The positions will remain open until filled.
