Assistant Professor



The Therapeutic Innovation Center (THINC) at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) invites outstanding applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position for colleagues studying structural biology of macromolecules and complexes related to gene regulation, and in particular RNA and ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes. Candidates should have a demonstrated track record of applying structural and biophysical approaches to address key questions in the biology of gene regulation. Experience in the science of therapeutics and therapeutic development is encouraged but not required.

THINC ( is a center of excellence at BCM that seeks to discover fundamental mechanisms of gene control, especially RNA and chromatin regulation, and to translate these discoveries into early therapeutic development. THINC brings together colleagues across BCM and the Texas Medical Center who study gene regulation from multiple disciplines and are leveraging these discoveries in diseases of aberrant gene control including cancer, neurodegeneration, and infectious disease. In addition to THINC member faculty labs, THINC also includes a dedicated team of scientists with expertise in therapeutic development including molecular, chemical, and computational biology. This team drives forward technology platforms and therapeutic campaigns aligned with the strategic goals of THINC member labs.

BCM is the premier medical school of Texas and has the top-ranked Genetics and Cell Biology Departments in the U.S. based on NIH funding. BCM has internationally recognized strengths in structural biology and biochemistry, a long-standing NIH human genome sequencing center, cutting edge Advanced Technology Cores, exceptional Ph.D. graduate programs, a commitment to technology transfer for faculty discoveries, and a rich history of translating basic science into clinical implementation. Relevant to structural biology and biophysics, BCM has scientific expertise and technological platforms in X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM, NMR. BCM is integrated with Houston area institutions with leading expertise in the physical sciences including shared technology platforms and training grants. BCM is also home to the NCI-designated Dan L. Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center ( and centered in Texas Medical Center, the world's largest biomedical research complex.
THINC and BCM offer premier recruitment packages and resources to enhance the candidate's research program.

Baylor College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Equal Access Employer.
