Open tenure track assistant professor or associate professor position at Brown University

The Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry at Brown University has an Assistant or Associate Professor tenure track position available in the area of Structural Biology. We are seeking candidates with outstanding research and teaching abilities for a start date of July 1, 2018 and I would greatly appreciate your assistance in making the availability of this position known to potential candidates.

The MCB Department is a strong, interdisciplinary department with an active graduate program in Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry funded by an NIH predoctoral training grant. The department includes faculty with research programs in structural biology, biochemistry, developmental biology, cell biology, genetics, genomics and proteomics. Close contacts with a large number of basic and clinical researchers in the Division of Biology and Medicine provide an exciting intellectual environment that enables easy communication and interdisciplinary collaborations that are strongly supported by Dean Jack Elias’ focus on translational research.

The Brown Structural Biology facility, managed by Dr. Mandar Naik, provides state-of-the-art research instrumentation for NMR and X-ray crystallography. We recently completed the installation of a Rigaku micro-focus x-ray source that integrates with existing hardware (including an Actor sample mounting robot) to provide state-of-the-art instrumentation for in-house X-ray crystallography. Moving forward, we also anticipate the installation of a 600 MHz NMR spectrometer in 2018 to complement the existing cryoprobe-equipped Bruker 850 MHz and 500 MHz instruments.

An announcement describing the structural biology position is enclosed. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae with a complete bibliography, a 3-5 page description of research plans, a 1-page teaching statement and up to 3 representative publications. Materials should be submitted electronically to Applicants should arrange for at least three confidential reference letters to be submitted separately. Review of applications will commence on November 1, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled.
