Faculty Positions in Gene Regulation and Genomics
The Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences and the Division of Basic Reproductive Biology Research in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at UT Southwestern Medical Center invite applications from outstanding candidates for three tenure-track assistant or associate professor positions in signaling, gene regulation, and genome function, especially in the areas of chromatin and transcription, epigenetics, nuclear endpoints of cellular signaling pathways, nuclear receptors, RNA biology, genome organization and evolution, and DNA replication and repair.
We are interested in a wide variety of model systems and experimental approaches, including biochemistry, molecular biology, structural biology, animal models, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, and computational biology. The Green Center’s research programs focus on, but are not limited to, female reproductive biology in a broad sense, including: oocyte maturation, fertilization, development, pregnancy, parturition, stem cells, endocrinology, and oncology, as well as relevant aspects of metabolism, inflammation, immunity, and neurobiology.
Position 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.
Position 2: Genomic, Bioinformatic, Computational, and Evolutionary Approaches to Understanding Gene Regulation
A more focused search in areas that will connect to broader genomic initiatives on campus.
Position 3: Molecular Biology of Female Reproductive Systems
A search for candidates using cell-based or physiological models in combination with molecular or genomic approaches to address fundamental questions concerning female reproductive biology.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D., or the equivalent in a relevant field of study, postdoctoral or comparable experience, and a demonstrated record of research excellence. Applicants should send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and a statement of planned research projects as pdf files to email@example.com, indicating the position of interest (Position 1, 2, or 3) in the subject line. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent directly to the above email address. Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2011, and continue during the 2011-2012 academic year or until the positions are filled, although applicants are encouraged to submit their materials as soon as possible.
