The Department of Molecular Genetics, Biochemistry, and Microbiology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine invites Structural Biologists to apply for a tenure track position at the Assistant or Associate rank. The College of Medicine is the primary research engine at the University of Cincinnati, linking discovery, translational, and clinical outcome scientists in a pipeline that is transforming health care. The Department’s scientists can access expertise within all of UC’s 14 colleges to create a dynamic and novel approach to solving problems from the molecular level to the patient’s bedside. Enhancing the discovery sciences is the focus of the College over the next several years. The successful candidate will join this cohort of new scientists to become leaders in this research environment. The new recruit will be expected to secure extramural funds to maintain a vibrant and innovative research program. We seek candidates who will address fundamental basic science questions at the molecular level as they relate to human health and will synergize with current faculty. Individuals with expertise in X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM, protein engineering, synthetic biology, and orthogonal structural and biophysical approaches are highly desirable. Successful candidates will be expected to couple structural findings with biological function. College investment in Core infrastructure provides the faculty with a variety of up-to-date core facilities with access to instrumentation and technical expertise to enrich their programs. We cultivate a supportive environment in the department and college that provides career and scientific mentoring. The College supports several opportunities for internal grant awards, grant pre-review, recognition of research excellence, and social and scientific forums over the academic year.
