The University of Chicago's Department of Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology (http://mgcb.bsd.uchicago.edu/) in the Biological Sciences Division seeks faculty in molecular genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, developmental biology, quantitative biology, and related fields, broadly defined.

Appointees will join a highly supportive and collegial community, with access to state-of-the-art core facilities. They will work with outstanding colleagues and graduate students associated with numerous degree-granting programs spanning the biological and physical sciences, and they will have additional opportunities to engage with our affiliates, Argonne National Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory. Competitive research space and start-up funding will be available.
