The University of Missouri (MU) invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the Department of Biochemistry. The position will be in an area of fundamental or biomedical biochemistry. Candidates should have an earned doctorate and the ability to lead a federally funded research group. Applications at the Assistant Professor level are encouraged. Candidates at a higher level will be considered if there is a record of extramural research funding, publications, teaching and service expected of tenured faculty at a research-intensive university.
The department has an undergraduate teaching mission in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CAFNR), provides pre-clinical training in the School of Medicine, and supports graduate education in both units. As a department in a Land Grant University that bridges two colleges, the Department of Biochemistry is home to fundamental molecular science and to its translation into both agricultural and biomedical applications. Example areas of interest include: fundamental biochemistry; transgenic technology; and spatio-temporal biochemistry involving transcriptomics, proteomics, and other genome-wide approaches.
