The Department of Molecular and Cell Biology (MCB) is soliciting applications for a new faculty member studying the biology of cancer; this position is open at any level (tenure-track or tenured). We seek candidates interested in the mechanisms of cancer and treatment of this disease with a primary focus on human cancer or mammalian models. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the genetics and epigenetics of cancer in humans or mouse models, tumor-host interactions, tumor metastasis, tumor immunology, cancer genomics, and the use of mouse models to dissect mechanisms of tumor initiation and progression.
The Department of Molecular and Cell Biology (MCB) is soliciting applications for a faculty position in Emerging and Neglected Diseases; this position is open at any level (tenure-track or tenured). We seek candidates focused on microbiology, immunology, and/or infectious disease. Research on pathogens or infectious disease mechanisms with significance for global health is of particular but not exclusive interest.
The Department of Molecular and Cell Biology (MCB) and the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute (HWNI) are soliciting applications for a new faculty member at the Assistant Professor level (tenure-track), with a half-time appointment in each of the two departments. We seek applicants studying fundamental aspects of nervous system function, in the broad areas of molecular/cellular neuroscience, developmental neuroscience, neurodegenerative disease, or neural circuit function.
We are saddened to announce the death of Professor Emeritus Richard Steinhardt.
Assistant Professor of Genetics, Genomics and Development Elçin Ünal has been selected as one of 22 2014 Pew Scholars in the Biomedical Sciences. The award supports promising early-career scientists in the health sciences, particularly young researchers with innovative approaches and ideas. Assistant Professor of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Structural Biology Roberto Zoncu has been selected as a member of the inaugural class of Pew-Stewart Scholars for Cancer Research, which supports promising early career scientists whose research may accelerate discovery and advance progress to a cure for cancer.
