Multiple Faculty Positions in Pharmacology, Drug Development, and Cancer Research
Applications are invited for multiple tenured and tenure track faculty positions at all ranks (Assistant, Associate, and Full Professors) dependant upon qualifications in the Department of Pharmacology, State University of New York (SUNY) Upstate Medical University at Syracuse, New York. These positions will be offered with a competitive salary and start-up package for appointment in 2010. This is an ambitious multi-year initiative to recruit many outstanding new faculty and significantly enhance the research enterprise of the department.
Successful candidates will be expected to undertake a robust independent and extramurally funded research program as well as participate in teaching. Areas of special interest for the recruitment are, but not limited to: (1) pharmacology (pharmacogenomics, molecular, cellular or systems pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, toxicology, drug metabolism); (2) drug development (new approaches to drug discovery, chemical biology, bio-organic chemistry, drug delivery, drug formulation, preclinical evaluation); (3) cancer research (cancer biology, cancer cell signaling, cancer stem cells, experimental therapeutics for cancer).
The College of Medicine of SUNY Upstate Medical Unversity was founded in 1834 as one of the oldest medical colleges in the nation (See History of the College of Medicine). The Department of Pharmacology has a long and distinguished history in pharmacological research and education, with faculty engaging research in cancer, cell signaling, cardiovascular disease, stem cells, infectious disease, neurodegeneration, and drug discovery. The department is anticipating a major growth in faculty and research in the next several years, especially in areas of cancer pharmacology, cancer biology, and drug development. This initiative emerges from a strategic focus on cancer as one of the major disease research areas by the university and the founding of a new SUNY Upstate Cancer Research Institute in central New York.
Candidates should e-mail (preferably in one email transmission using PDF file) a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research plan, teaching statement, and three representative publications. Please specify the search area (pharmacology, drug development, or cancer research) in the cover letter. Three letters of reference should be sent separately by e-mail (senior level applicants at Associate and Full Professor levels may instead choose to email a list of 3-5 referees for us to contact later). E-mail all application materials to:
