FACULTY POSITION


The University of Alaska Fairbanks invites applications for a tenure-track
faculty position in Molecular Biology at the assistant/associate professor
level. 

The University is establishing a program in molecular mechanisms of disease,
including toxicology, and infectious agents/zoonotics, as part of its
Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (BRIN) program which is supported
by the National Center for Research Resources of the National Institutes of
Health. Five faculty positions are funded in toxicology and/or infectious
agents and one in bioinformatics.

In this search, we seek an outstanding researcher and teacher whose
interests address fundamental questions related to the molecular biology of
disease. We are especially interested in candidates with expertise in
infectious disease and/or zoonotics, whether directed at the infectious
agent or the host response, and/or in individuals with competence in
molecular toxicology and a focus on endocrine disruption or gene regulation
in response to environmental contaminants. We offer a competitive start-up
package, newly renovated space and/or space in new facilities. Applicants
for this position are expected to have the potential to compete for NIH R01
funding.

This position is joint between the Institute of Arctic Biology (IAB) and the
Department of Biology and Wildlife (B&W). Tenure resides within the
department, which is part of the College of Science, Engineering and
Mathematics. Tenure-track faculty teach and advise graduate and
