The School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences at Arizona State University is expanding its Pharmacology and Toxicology program. We invite applications for a full-time, benefits-eligible Assistant/Associate Professor, Tenure Track/Tenured faculty position with broad interdisciplinary expertise applicable to any area of Pharmacology or Toxicology that complements or supplements existing strengths in the school.
About the School:
The School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences, New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (https://newcollege.asu.edu/smns ) at Arizona State University, is an interdisciplinary mathematical and natural sciences unit that offers bachelor’s degrees in Pharmacology and Toxicology, Biology, Environmental Science, Applied Computing, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Forensic Science, Computational Forensics, Biotechnology and Bioenterprise, and a master’s degree in Biological Data Science. Faculty collaborate across disciplines within the School and throughout ASU. Mentoring doctoral students is possible through university-wide graduate programs. Successful candidates are expected to establish a vigorous, externally-funded program of research; to deliver quality undergraduate and graduate instruction in Pharmacology/Toxicology, and in topics related to a candidate’s specialized area of expertise; and to contribute service to the university and the profession. The School is committed to recruiting and retaining students and faculty from groups that have historically been underrepresented in the sciences, and achieving diversity that reflects the U.S. population.
