The Department of Pharmacology at Yale University School of Medicine invites applications for Assistant or Associate Professor positions in the tenure track. Applicants must have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. or equivalent degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in research and education. Areas of interest include studies of molecular function such as proteomics, chemical biology, structural biology (including electron microscopy), and computational biology in different areas of drug discovery, cell signaling, metabolism, genetic diseases, and epigenetic mechanisms.
Responsibilities include establishing a vigorous and independently funded research program in cancer biology while supervising and mentoring students with diverse backgrounds plus contributing to the graduate and medical school educational missions.
