Faculty Recruitment

E-mail Print

The Department of Molecular and Cell Biology (MCB) is seeking applications for four faculty positions in the following areas: Systems Developmental Biology, Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Neurobiology, Biology of Cancer and Emerging & Neglected Diseases.  We seek candidates with Ph. D. and/or M.D. degree who have demonstrated excellence, originality and productivity in research, and interest in undergraduate and graduate teaching. Ph.D. or equivalent is required by date of hire.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae; a list of publications; copies of three significant publications; a brief description of research accomplishments; and a statement of research objectives and teaching interests. We are particularly interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service; candidates are invited to address this issue in their application. Applicants for the tenure level in the Biology of Cancer or Emerging & Neglected Diseases searches should include a list of five references with their application; letters of reference are not required at this time. Applicants for the Assistant professor level positions should arrange to have three letters of reference submitted online. All letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law. Please refer potential referees, including when letters are provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service or career center), to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality (http://apo.chance.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html) prior to submitting their letters.

The deadline for applications is November 15, 2013.

UC Berkeley is committed to addressing the family needs of faculty. Women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply. The University of California is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.

Systems Developmental Biology
We seek candidates whose research focuses on the use of systems-level technologies (e.g., advanced imaging methods, whole-genome analysis, computational modeling) to understand developmental processes (e.g. live imaging of cell migration, gene activity) in either invertebrates or vertebrates. This position is open at the Assistant Professor level (tenure-track). Applications should be submitted online through https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF00214.  See above application details.

Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Neurobiology
We seek candidates who use cellular/molecular, optical, biophysical and/or neurophysiological approaches to study neurons,neuronal signaling, synapses, brain circuits, neural development or disease. However, all areas of neuroscience will be considered. The successful candidate will also join the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute (http://neuroscience.berkeley.edu). This position is open at the Assistant Professor level (tenure-track).  Applications should be submitted online through https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF00215.  See above application details.

Biology of Cancer
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 successful candidate will have the opportunity to provide leadership in the field of cancer biology at the university in the future. This position is open at any level (tenure-track or tenured).  Applications should be submitted online through https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF00217.  See above application details.

Emerging & Neglected Diseases
We seek candidates at the Full or Associate Professor level focused in all areas of infectious diseases, especially in human emerging and neglected infectious agents of global health importance.  The successful candidate should also be interested in serving as a member of the faculty leadership group for the Wheeler Center for Emerging & Neglected Diseases (CEND) to manage existing programs and develop new initiatives and programs that further the mission of CEND, and to collaborate with the dynamic group of CEND-affiliated faculty from diverse schools and departments on campus. High priority will be given to candidates with international research collaborations, a translational global health research focus, and/or innovative approaches for understanding emerging and neglected infectious diseases. Candidates should be currently in a tenure level or equivalent position, or approaching a tenure decision at their current institution.   Applications should be submitted online through https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF00216.  See above application details.
