The bicoastal Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) is conducting a faculty search for two tenure-track Assistant Professors to be located on the Jupiter, Florida campus. The area of research is open but should fit within the broad scope of research in the chemical and biological sciences at TSRI. Areas of emphasis include immunology, pharmacology, and structural biology.
Scripps Research — one of the world’s largest, private, non-profit research organizations — is at the forefront of biomedical science, with faculty undertaking medical research that seeks to comprehend the most fundamental processes of life. Over the last decades, the Institute has established its core strengths in biomedical research at the interfaces between the chemical and biological sciences. The Institute is organized into two campuses, one in La Jolla, California, and one in Jupiter, Florida. In Florida, the Institute houses the Lead Identification Division supporting high throughput screening and drug lead optimization efforts. TSRI recently formed a strategic alliance with Calibr, a not-for-profit drug discovery Institute, providing a link between the basic research of TSRI and the translational research of Calibr. TSRI has a vibrant Ph.D. program that is ranked in the top 10 in chemical and biological sciences as well as a collegial and collaborative environment, where faculty, students and postdoctoral fellows freely interact across campuses and disciplines to form synergy in emerging areas of research.
Candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent in a relevant discipline, and an outstanding record of research that demonstrates originality in addressing biologically significant and therapeutically-relevant questions. Successful candidates will be expected to establish an active research group, be a collaborative member of the faculty, and participate in interdisciplinary research and training.
A Search Committee with representatives across disciplines will review the applications. Applicants will be selected for interviews starting as early as October 2018.
