                                          TENURE TRACK FACULTY POSITION


The Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Colorado, School of Medicine invites applications for a tenure-eligible faculty position in the areas of molecular, cellular, or systems neuroscience or physiology. We are particularly interested in candidates who use innovative techniques in electrophysiology, biophysics, photonics, and/or bioengineering. We expect the appointee to conduct vigorous independent research and participate in professional and graduate training. Rank is open and will depend on qualifications.


The appointee will be part of an actively expanding Department (http://medschool.ucdenver.edu/physiology) in a new state-of-the-art research facility at the Anschutz Medical Campus (http://www.ucdenver.edu/about/denver/Pages/AnschutzMedicalCampus.aspx). Current faculty in the Department have research programs in sensory and motor systems neuroscience, neuroendocrinology, cardiac and skeletal muscle physiology, developmental neurobiology, synaptic function, cell signaling, and ion channel biology. We especially encourage applications from candidates with research interests that complement and extend existing research in the Department. Additional scientific interactions occur within interdepartmental programs: Neuroscience; Cell, Stem Cell, and Developmental Biology; Reproductive Science; Molecular Biology; Biomolecular Structure; Cancer Biology; and Immunology. Many of these programs have associated core facilities. For example, the Neuroscience Program (http://medschool.ucdenver.edu/neuroscience) provides its members with core facilities in light and electron microscopy and mouse and zebrafish gene manipulation technologies through its Rocky Mountain Neurological Disorders Center Core.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and appropriate and sufficient post-doctoral research experience to establish an independent research program and obtain funding. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2010 and will continue until the position is filled.


The University of Colorado offers a full benefits package. Information on University benefits programs, including eligibility, is located at http://www.cu.edu/pbs/.


Applicants should apply through the electronic job application website at the University of Colorado: https://www.jobsatcu.com/. Applicants must include:

1) A cover letter addressed to:
