Faculty positions in structural biology and biophysics - CUNY ASRC

Two open tenure-track faculty positions are available at the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center, a new interdisciplinary research center located in New York City.

The CUNY ASRC facility provides 200,000 ft2 of laboratory space that has turned into a highly interactive and collaborative environment which integrates structural biologists with colleagues in neuroscience, photonics, nanoscience and environmental sciences. Combining world-class experts in these areas with state-of-the-art NMR, EM, mass spec, crystallization and other instrumentation and colleagues both in the building and at the adjacent CCNY Center for Discovery and Innovation and New York Structural Biology Center, the ASRC offers a unique opportunity for research programs to flourish among normally-disparate fields.

Continuing our growth this year, we are looking for two new tenure-track faculty to join the ASRC’s Structural Biology Initiative at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level. This opportunity is open to outstanding scientists with strong records of significant research accomplishments in structural biology, broadly defined as the use of a wide range of experimental and computational approaches to tackle fundamental questions of the molecular mechanisms inherent to biological processes.

Candidates are expected to have advanced degrees (Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent) in biophysics, biochemistry, chemistry or related areas plus postdoctoral research experience. Final faculty ranks will be determined by the qualifications and experience of successful candidates, with our primary criteria being a demonstrated commitment to research and teaching.  Individuals filling these positions are expected to serve major roles in the research and education programs of the ASRC, along with the teaching mission ns of one of the colleges within the CUNY system.

Applicants should electronically submit 1). a curriculum vitae, 2). a 1-2 page cover letter summarizing research accomplishments, future directions and views on interdisciplinary research, and 3). a brief (3 page max) description of proposed research, and arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation submitted on their behalf to the Structural Biology Initiative Search Committee c/o Dr. Kevin Gardner, at Academic Jobs Online https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/6092, Job# 6092.  All application materials must be received by October 31, 2015.
