FACULTY POSITIONS IN GENE REGULATION
Job posting number: #7054157
Posted: November 6, 2018
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
Job DescriptionThe Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences, an endowed basic science research center within the Division of Basic Research in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, is recruiting to fill newly created Tenure-track Assistant Professor Positions. We invite applications from outstanding candidates studying aspects of signaling, gene regulation, and genome function, especially in the areas of chromatin and transcription, epigenetics, nuclear endpoints of cellular signaling pathways, nuclear receptors, RNA biology, genome organization, and genome evolution. We are interested in a wide variety of model systems and experimental approaches, including biochemistry, molecular biology, structural biology, animal models, genetics, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, and computational biology. The Green Center’s research programs focus on, but are not limited to, reproduction and development in a broad sense, as well as aspects of endocrinology, stem cells, cancer, metabolism, inflammation, immunity, and neurobiology.
• Position 1: Signaling, chromatin, and gene regulation – a broad search for candidates using a wide array of experimental approaches to address fundamental questions in nuclear signaling, chromatin, transcription, epigenetics, and RNA biology.
• Position 2: Genomic, proteomic, bioinformatic, computational, and evolutionary approaches to understanding gene regulation - a more focused search in research areas using state-of-the-art methodologies that will connect to broader “omic” initiatives on campus.
• Position 3: Molecular biology of female reproductive systems - a search for candidates using cell-based or physiological models in combination with molecular or genomic approaches to address fundamental questions concerning female reproductive biology.
The Green Center promotes and supports cutting-edge, integrative, and collaborative basic research in reproduction, development, and related areas of biology, as well as strong connections between basic and clinical research. This recruitment is part of a major university and department-supported renovation and rejuvenation of The Green Center over the past 8 years. Successful candidates will be housed in a newly renovated state-of-the-art research facility and provided a generous start-up package, and are expected to establish scientifically rigorous and externally funded research programs and participate in center, department, and university teaching and training programs.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. or equivalent in a relevant field of study, postdoctoral or comparable experience, and a demonstrated record of research excellence. Applicants should send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and a statement of planned research projects as pdf files to GreenCenter@UTSouthwestern.edu. Please indicate one of the three research areas listed above (Molecular biology of female reproduction; Gene regulation; Genomics) in the subject line of the email. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent directly to the above e-mail address. Collection and review of applications will commence October 1, 2018 and will continue during the 2018–2019 academic year until the position is filled, but applicants are encouraged to submit their materials as soon as possible.
