The Boston University Department of Biology invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Cell & Molecular Biology starting in fall 2020, pending budgetary approval. We seek to recruit a colleague who uses experimental and systems-level approaches to elucidate complex biological processes, including those relevant to stem cell biology, development, immune cell development or regulation, microbiology, neuroscience, transcriptional networks, or cell signaling. This search builds on recent faculty growth in systems biology and seeks to generate new synergies for research. Responsibilities include growing a vibrant research program with extramural funding, teaching at the graduate and/or undergraduate levels, and training graduate students, with opportunities to participate in one or more interdisciplinary graduate programs. Boston University expects excellence in teaching and in research, and is committed to building a culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse scholarly community. The successful candidate will be offered newly renovated laboratory facilities as well as a competitive salary and start-up package.
Review of applications will begin 1 November 2019.
