Assistant Professor – DNA regulation and/or Cancer research

As part of a continued effort to expand its research and teaching mission, the Department of Biomedical Sciences at the Quillen College of Medicine at East Tennessee State University invites applications for a tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level. Exceptional candidates who are well-funded will also be considered for a higher rank. We seek candidates with nationally competitive research in 1) DNA regulation and metabolism, genome stability, and/or 2) cancer, preferably with broad training in genomics/genetics/epigenetics, to join existing departmental strengths. Applicants should have a strong publication record and, preferably, extramural grant funding. A demonstrated ability or potential to teach is desired, as responsibilities will include teaching medical students. This is an excellent opportunity for junior faculty members because of the competitive starting salary, state-funded positions, ample laboratory space, core facilities, and the commitment of the existing faculty to provide strong career mentoring. This sizeable department offers many opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborative research. Our very collegial environment also extends to clinical departments and other colleges at ETSU. The university is a regional state-supported institution serving approximately 15,000 students. The College of Medicine consistently ranks among the top Schools nationwide for rural medicine and primary care education.
