The Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley is soliciting applications for a faculty position in Cellular and Molecular Physiology at the level of Assistant Professor (tenure track). We seek applicants studying how communication within and between cells supports physiological function and enables cells, tissues, and organisms to respond to changes in their environment and maintain homeostasis. Our preference is for applicants who use quantitative molecular and cellular techniques to uncover the mechanism of normal function as well as dysfunction that may lead to human disease. Target research areas include, but are not limited to, mechanisms of motor control, sensory physiology, metabolism, lung physiology, reproduction, neurodegeneration, tissue and organ development, stem cell biology, tumor biology, and animal models of disease. We seek candidates who have demonstrated excellence, originality and productivity in research. A Ph.D. and/or M.D. or equivalent degree in Molecular Biology or a related field is required at the time of application.
Preferred qualifications (by start date): Experience in the use of quantitative molecular and cellular techniques to uncover the mechanism of normal function as well as dysfunction that may lead to human disease. Interest in undergraduate and graduate teaching in Physiology. Applications must be received by November 16, 2015.
