Junior Faculty Position (Center for Cerebrovascular Research)
University of California, San Francisco
The Center for Cerebrovascular Research (CCR) in the Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care at the University of California, San Francisco, seeks an outstanding candidate for a position of Assistant Adjunct Professor. The CCR studies a range of topics related to cerebrovascular diseases, with several NIH-funded clinical and basic science research projects studying brain vascular malformations, which are a major cause of hemorrhagic stroke and neurological morbidity in children and young adults. There are allied and collaborating faculty in a number of neuroscience and vascular biology fields. The setting is ideal for a broad exposure to many aspects of cerebrovascular disease and pathophysiology.
It is essential that candidates have the ability to work both independently and as part of a team consisting of a diverse group of scientists and clinicians with varying backgrounds and expertise. The candidate should demonstrate leadership, independent and collaborative research in areas related to cerebrovascular biology, cerebrovascular diseases, and human genetics, and a strong publication record. Successful candidates will interact with existing faculty and are expected to develop an independent research portfolio.
Candidates must possess: • PhD, MD, or equivalent doctoral level degree in a related biomedical field. • Experience in human genetics research with a strong interest in vascular diseases and neuroscience. • Hands-on experience in diverse molecular biology and high throughput genomics techniques (qRT-PCR, genotyping, sequencing) • Knowledge of computational analysis, programming and bioinformatics for gene expression, genetic association, and high throughput sequencing analysis (e.g. exome, RNAseq, somatic mutation identification)
