Posted 11/2/2023

The Department of Biology at UMass Boston seeks applicants for a full-time tenure track Assistant Professor to pursue a research program that addresses biological questions at the mechanistic, biochemical level. We will prioritize candidates whose research plans emphasize biochemical approaches to molecular and cell biology, developmental biology, or microbial biology. The successful applicant is expected to establish an externally funded research program and direct the research of students at doctoral, masters, and undergraduate levels. Applicants must have a PhD and postdoctoral research experience. Commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels is expected.

UMass Boston is an urban public research university with a teaching soul, whose impact is both local and global. We are the third most diverse university in the country - more than 60% of our undergraduate students come from minoritized communities and groups, and more than half of our students are the first in their families to attend a college or university. We invite applications from candidates who engage the diverse life experiences of our student body, who appreciate that students bring their holistic selves into the academic setting, and who recognize and articulate how their own life experiences and backgrounds have shaped their journeys, practices, and commitments as researchers, scholars, and educators.

Application instructions:
Candidates should submit: (i) a cover letter detailing how their proposed experimental work would complement existing research within the Department, (ii) a curriculum vitae, (iii) a statement of research plans, (iv) a statement of teaching philosophy (including teaching experience and preferred teaching areas), as well as contact information for three references. For further information, contact the Search Committee Chair, Linda Huang at [email protected] . Review of applications will begin on December 12, 2023.
