Current Faculty Openings

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. 


Cancer Research Faculty Job Ad Banner

Cancer Biology

We are seeking applicants to fill tenure-track faculty positions at the  Assistant Professor and/or Associate Professor level in the area of  Cancer Biology. The ideal candidate must have a research program that addresses fundamental cancer biology research questions by taking one of two, or a combination of the following approaches. First, the Department is interested in candidates that develop and incorporate cutting edge technologies, including computational modeling, to understand the complexities of cancer at the systems level. Second, the Department is interested in candidates that focus on leveraging molecular biology and biochemical approaches to disentangle the fundamental biological mechanisms involved with tumor development, progression, metastasis, and/or therapeutics. The ideal candidate will have a strong track record in the combination of in vitro, ex vivo, in vivo and/or in silico systems. A competitive research program will incorporate principles and practical applications of pharmacology. We are seeking innovative thinkers that are highly collaborative and can put forth a research program that leverages the numerous clinical and basic research resources available through the Department and across campus. There is a developing group of Cancer Data Scientists on campus and this position will have the opportunity to work directly with and to help shape the research direction of this group from both the perspective of basic mechanisms and computational methods in cancer research. Applicants should also be enthusiastic about teaching and serving as research mentors in our interdepartmental graduate training programs including the Pharmacology Graduate ProgramCancer Biology Graduate ProgramComputational Biosciences Graduate ProgramImmunology Graduate Program, and Molecular Biology Graduate Program.


Neuroscience Faculty Job Ad Banner

Neuroscience

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.
