The University of California, Riverside is searching for a new faculty member at the ASSISTANT PROFESSOR level in the area of Molecular and Cellular Biology. Areas of interest could involve nuclear dynamics, histone modifications, noncoding RNAs in chromatin remodeling and genome stability, RNA transport, stability, and translation, RNAi and microRNAs, and RNA/protein trafficking within and between cells. Candidates working in molecular and cellular biology with any state-of-the-art model systems are encouraged to apply. Candidates who incorporate systems biology approaches, large-scale genomics, next generation sequencing, bioinformatics and/or visual microscopy to their research programs are preferred.
The successful candidate will join an innovative and multidisciplinary Institute for Integrative Genome Biology (IIGB) that connects theoretical and experimental researchers from different departments in Life, Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Medicine, Engineering and various campus based Centers. The IIGB is organized around a 10,000 sq.ft. suite of Instrumentation Facilities that serve as a centralized, shared-use resource for faculty, staff and students, offering advanced tools in bioinformatics, microscopy and imaging, proteomics and genomics. The University of California, Riverside also just completed construction of the School of Medicine Research Building adjacent to the Genomics Building, which will be developing research and health care delivery programs to medically underserved populations in California. A modern vivarium and two BSL3 facilities are located close to the Genomics and School of Medicine Research Buildings.
Review of applications will begin December 1, 2014. Interested individuals should: (1) submit a curriculum vitae, (2) provide a statement of research and teaching interests, and (3) arrange to have three letters of reference sent on their behalf through the recruitment website https://aprecruit.ucr.edu.
