The Department of Molecular Biosciences at the University of South Florida (Tampa campus) invites applications for a 9-month, tenure-earning faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor in genome integrity with an expected start date of August 7, 2024.
We particularly encourage applicants whose research expands and complements our current interests in DNA replication, genome instability, and oxidative stress (https://www.usf.edu/arts-sciences/departments/molecular-biosciences/research/index.aspx) and who seek to establish an innovative research program with a focus in this area, including but not limited to molecular and cellular mechanisms of genome instability, DNA damage response, chromatin biology, environmental exposures (the exposome), DNA damage outcomes, and disease.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in Biology or a related discipline, postdoctoral experience, and a successful track record of publications in fundamental and/or applied research in genome maintenance. The successful candidate will be expected to develop and maintain a strong, externally funded research program, as well as to contribute to the education of undergraduate and graduate students.
We offer a supportive and collaborative environment, outstanding laboratory space, as well as a competitive salary and start-up package for the successful candidate.
