Four Tenure-track positions in Molecular Biosciences
Department of Biology, University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus

 The Biology Department invites applications for multiple molecular biosciences tenure-track positions as part of a cluster recruitment plan.  This recruitment effort targets research that includes the application of high-throughput technology and generation of big data.  Areas of interest include:

  1. Biochemistry and biology of proteins
  2. Cell biology and microscopy
  3. Functional genomics
  4. Molecular neuroscience

The Biology Department is the largest unit within the University of Puerto Rico system, distinguished with outstanding research tradition and an MS- PhD graduate program with an intercampus component.  The Department is situated at the heart of the recently built technology corridor connected organically to the PR Science Trust, Medical Sciences Campus, state-of-the-art Molecular Sciences Building, Institute of Neurobiology and other universities.          This location provides for vigorous academic and applied collaborations as well as training opportunities for graduate students and post-docs.

Faculty will be recruited to well-equipped lab space with access to incubator facilities in the Molecular Sciences Building.  The department and the Molecular Sciences Building offer core facilities in proteomics, genomics, microscopy, and bioinformatics among others. 

The successful candidate will teach graduate and undergraduate courses and conduct research and publish in peer reviewed journals in the area of specialty; participate in outreach and service activities related to his/her academic and scientific expertise; actively participate in departmental activities and projects, as well as those at the College of Natural Sciences and the UPR system and fulfill all other obligations associated with a tenure-track position. A dynamic research program that attracts extramural funding and involves graduate and undergraduate students is expected.   Start-up funds, internal funding for research, and additional start-up funds from the PR Science Trust are available.  A PhD or equivalent degree and post-doctoral experience, and a strong research record are required.   We are looking for faculty that will be able to integrate skills that will foster interdisciplinary research, faculty collaboration and student training.  The initial appointment is expected to be at the assistant professor level, although a more senior appointment may be possible under special circumstances.

For timely consideration in the current recruitment cycle, applicants should submit all documents by November 1, 2015.    The application should include: the Curriculum Vitae, brief research statement (≤ 3 pages), teaching statement (≤ 3 pages), and contact information of three references in a single pdf file to Dr. Tugrul Giray, Chair, Department of Biology, tugrul.giray@upr.edu

All documents and the e-mail should specify the position of interest. 

Evaluation will start on November 1, 2015.

Expected starting date: August 15, 2016
