Tenure-Track Assistant Professors, Cell and Developmental Biology

University of Texas at Austin

Austin, TX

Posted 9/7/2023

The Department of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Texas at Austin invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level in cell and developmental biology.  We will also consider mid-career candidates at the early-stage Associate Professor level. One of these positions is for a scientist addressing questions related to plant development, cell biology and/or cross-species interactions between plants and pathogens/parasites/symbionts. The other position is for a scientist addressing questions in animal embryonic development, cell biology, disease modeling, and/or stem cell biology. The Department of Molecular Biosciences is composed of a broad faculty whose research interests span many disciplines including biochemistry, molecular biology, structural biology and biophysics, cell and developmental biology, plant biology, microbiology, immunology and infectious diseases, biotechnology, and systems and synthetic biology. For both positions we are particularly interested in candidates whose research utilizes novel molecular, genomic, biochemical and/or imaging approaches that complement existing faculty within the department.

The UT College of Natural Sciences and the Department of Molecular Biosciences encourage applications from candidates who will contribute to excellence in mentoring through their teaching, research, and service. The College and Department are responsive to the needs of dual career couples, support work-life balance through an array of family-friendly policies and are dedicated to broadening participation in higher education.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in a relevant discipline and have an outstanding record of scientific ability as demonstrated by a strong publication record.

Applicants should apply through Interfolio (http://apply.interfolio.com/131312) with the following documents:

  1. Cover Letter that includes research area, qualifications, and contact information
  2. CV
  3. A statement of research interests (3-pages maximum)
  4. Three confidential letters of recommendation

Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2023 and continue until the position is filled.
