Assistant/Associate Professor in Cancer Molecular Genetics
The Department of Biochemistry at Purdue in conjunction with the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research (PUCCR) and the Walther Cancer Foundation invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in computational and experimental cancer genetics and genomics at the Associate or Assistant Professor level. This is an academic year appointment and we are particularly interested in candidates addressing questions in cancer biology including but not limited to cancer initiation, progression, metastasis, therapeutics and/or biomarker development. Successful candidates are expected to develop an internationally-recognized research program, teach in graduate and/or undergraduate courses, interact with diverse faculty, staff and students across campus, and function as an active member of the department and university faculty.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in cell biology, biochemistry, computational biology or a related field and at least two years of post-doctoral experience. Successful candidates at the Assistant Professor level should have a strong publication record, the potential to develop a vigorous, extramurally-funded research program, and a commitment to research and teaching excellence. In addition to these criteria, candidates for the Associate Professor level should currently have extramural funds with research programs of distinction.
