Faculty Recruitment

The Department of Molecular and Cell Biology (MCB) is seeking applications for four faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level (tenured track) in the areas listed below, including a joint position with the Department of Chemistry (CHEM). 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.

Enzymology and Mechanistic Biochemistry (CHEM/MCB)

The Department of Molecular and Cell Biology and the Department of Chemistry are seeking applications for a new faculty member, with a half-time appointment in each of the two departments. This search is in the general area of Chemical Biology, with a preference for a candidate in the fields of enzymology and mechanistic biochemistry. However, highly qualified applicants in all areas of Chemical Biology will be considered. Applications and letters of reference should be submitted online through http://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF00029. See application details below.

Immunology and Pathogenesis (MCB)

We seek candidates interested in any aspect of the immune system, including research on the development of the immune system, its regulation, and interactions with other physiological processes. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, research on basic molecular, cellular, genetic, or physiological aspects of innate and adaptive immunity, regulatory or pathogenic lymphocytes, vaccines, immunotherapy, mucosal immunology, autoimmunity, tumor immunology, inflammation, or immune interactions with microbes, parasites and microbiota. We are also interested in research on diseases that have an immune component or origin. Highly qualified applicants in all areas of immunology and pathogenesis will be considered. Applications and letters of reference should be submitted online through http://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF00049. See application details below.

Systems Biology (MCB )

We seek candidates whose research focuses on the use of systems-level technologies (e.g., advanced imaging methods, whole-genome analysis) to understand complex phenotypes, particularly developmental processes in either invertebrates or vertebrates, or genome variation and modeling of complex processes. Applications and letters of reference should be submitted online through http://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF00050. See application details below.

Cellular Biochemistry and Imaging (MCB)

The Division of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Structural Biology in MCB seeks candidates in cellular biochemistry (prokaryotic or eukaryotic) and/or in the area of imaging, with a particular emphasis on electron microscopy or super-resolution microscopy for the analysis of supramolecular assemblies and cellular structures.Applications and letters of reference should be submitted online through http://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF00051. See application details below.

Application Details

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. In addition, applicants 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.
