The Department of Pharmacology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine Anschutz Medical Campus is seeking applicants to fill tenure-track faculty positions in one of two areas, including cancer biology and neuroscience.
The Department of Pharmacology is a collegial and collaborative interdisciplinary scientific group, with strengths in cancer research, structural biology, epigenetics, neuroscience, cellular optogenetics, and systems biology. The Department offers a highly collaborative environment to support the development of the candidate’s research program. We are committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. We encourage applications from all individuals who would thrive in a collaborative and collegial scientific environment. Applicants should be enthusiastic about teaching and mentoring students.
Applicants must have a PhD and/or MD degree and appropriate and sufficient post-doctoral experience to establish and/or maintain an independent research program competitively funded by extramural grant support.
The Department of Pharmacology is seeking applicants to fill tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor level in the area of Neuroscience.
The research of the applicant should emphasize molecular, cellular or circuit mechanisms that are broadly related to understanding nervous system or associated diseases, actions of existing drugs, or the development of new drugs or therapies to treat
neurological or neuropsychiatric disorders. We especially seek applicants whose research would complement our existing strengths in neuropharmacology studying regulation of neuronal circuits, neurotransmitter receptors, ion channels,
synaptic plasticity, cell adhesion molecules, signal transduction, and gene expression in control of neuronal function in learning and memory, neurodegeneration, addiction, ischemic brain injury, intellectual disability, schizophrenia, and autism.
Applicants should also be enthusiastic about teaching and serving as research mentors in our interdepartmental graduate training programs such as the Pharmacology Graduate Program and
the Neuroscience Graduate Program.
