Job Description

The Division of Biomedical Sciences within the School of Medicine at the University of California Riverside is seeking to hire up to three new faculty members at the rank of assistant, associate or full professor in tenure-track/tenured positions. For those requiring a clinical appointment, a joint appointment within the Division of Clinical Sciences is possible.

We are looking for accomplished research scientists in a number of specific areas to synergize with current division, school and university strengths. Areas of research within the division include cancer biology, gastro-intestinal biology, integrative immunology (vaccine development, neuro-immune, host- pathogen interactions), neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders.  Particular strengths on the campus relevant to this search include genetics, genomics/bioinformatics, vector biology, bioengineering and nanotechnology, and synthetic and analytical chemistry.

Specifically, the Division of Biomedical Sciences is seeking applicants with biomedical research programs in:

  • Cancer and stem cell biology
  • Cardiovascular and metabolic disease
  • Clinical genetics
  • Medical microbiology
  • Pulmonary or renal physiology

Preference will be given to those individuals examining molecular mechanisms of disease who are committed to a collaborative approach to research, and who are expert in their specific disease model. The Division of Biomedical Sciences sponsors an innovative Ph.D. program that integrates the core medical curriculum with biomedical graduate training and research. The successful candidate will be expected to teach in the medical curriculum and actively participate in the biomedical sciences Ph.D. program. As such, preference will be given to candidates who are capable of teaching pathology, infectious disease (microbiology/virology), physiology (cardiovascular, metabolic, renal or respiratory) or clinical genetics.

The University of California, Riverside is centrally located within the Southern California area and situated in an historic citrus growing area surrounded by mountain ranges. Riverside is an hour away from ski slopes, surfing, or hiking in mountain wilderness or desert environments, and housing in the area is very affordable. The campus is located in close proximity to a host of high profile universities, research institutes, and biotech industries in Southern California.

Advancement through the faculty ranks at the University of California is through a series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring every 2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input.

Job Categories Laboratory Manager
Academic Field(s) Neuroscience
Job Description We seek a highly motivated and experienced individual to help
managing the general function of two science laboratories (Laura Feltri and Larry Wrabetz’s labs).  This senior researcher will join an international and dynamic group  of students, research scientists and clinicians that investigate myelin 
and myelin diseases,  including development of myelinating glia, 
establishment of axoglial interactions, myelin formation and maintenance, and associated genetic and acquired diseases and pathology including
neurodegeneration. Our laboratories employ a wide array of techniques to create
and analyze transgenic mouse models including engineering targeting constructs, homologous recombination or Crisp/Cas9 editing of the in mouse genome, behavioral analysis, electrophysiology, morphology (including electron microscopy), measures of gene expression and protein synthesis, and cell
biology including primary myelinating cultures and their transduction with viral vectors. The specific functions will include assisting the lab PIs in management and supervision of the laboratory procedures (IACUC and animal welfare, radioactivity, recombinant DNA), supervising at least two technicians, teaching and providing consultation for postdoctoral fellows and students, maintaining
contact with external collaborators, assisting in writing papers and contributing to funding requests, overseeing equipment acquisition and maintenance, and collaborating with administrators for economic management; all to ensure smooth
function in the two laboratories. The successful candidate will also be envouraged to  develop independent research projects related to those of the laboratories.
 
Please apply through the UB Jobs site www.ubjobs.buffalo.edu Please go to posting # 1600734.
