The University of Massachusetts Lowell Department of Biological Sciences invites applications to fill a full-time tenure-track faculty position, at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, to start September 2018. We have recently built a state-of-the-art aquatics facility and are interested in candidates using zebrafish or small aquatic animals as a model organism in their research. The ideal candidate's research focus should complement and leverage existing departmental and campus strengths. In addition to the broad range of research interests within the Biological Sciences Department, UMass Lowell has a diverse group of science and engineering faculty who use multiple model systems to evaluate new technologies (e.g. nanomedicine, biomaterials, robotics and tissue engineering) including an anticipated hire in the Chemistry department focusing on the biochemistry of muscle proteins, therefore candidates interested in establishing collaborations with faculty in these fields are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to establish a vigorous, externally funded research program, and contribute to the department's teaching mission. Teaching responsibilities may include the development of undergraduate courses, in addition to upper-level and graduate courses.
Applications will be reviewed beginning September 1, 2017.
