The Biology Department at Brandeis University invites applications for up to two full-time tenure-track positions at the level of Assistant Professor, beginning Fall 2019. We seek candidates conducting innovative research in the broad area of cell biology using any organismal, cellular or in vitro system. Areas of emphasis include, but are not limited to, cell architecture, cell motility, cell division and morphogenesis, organelle function, intracellular trafficking, and compartmentalization. Candidates must demonstrate a record of original achievement and a commitment to excellence in research, training, and teaching. The research environment at Brandeis is highly collaborative both within and between departments, and we seek colleagues who will complement and extend our existing strengths. Brandeis offers the opportunity to perform world-class research in the setting of a small liberal arts university. The campus is located 7 miles from Boston, and is part of the vibrant research community of the greater Boston area.
At Brandeis, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential components of academic excellence, and we particularly welcome applications that specifically address these concepts in the CV or cover letter, in the contexts of teaching, scholarship and/or service. Brandeis University is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer that is committed to creating equitable access and opportunities for applicants to all employment positions. Because these values are at the core of Brandeis’ history and mission, we are seeking candidates with a variety of backgrounds, including those that have been underrepresented in higher education, who possess skills that spark innovation, and bring expertise in building, engaging and sustaining a pluralistic and just campus community.
To apply, please provide the following:
- Cover letter
- Summary of research accomplishments to date, and goals for future independent research (3-4 pages maximum)
- Up to 4 publications
- 3 letters of reference
Please submit the above materials to AcademicJobsOnline at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11685. First consideration will be given to applications received by November 1, 2018.
