The Center for Musculoskeletal Research (CMSR) at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) is comprised of a highly integrated faculty from a broad range of Departments. These include Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, Pharmacology/Physiology, Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Biomedical Engineering, Neuro- medicine and Medicine (divisions of Rheumatology, Endocrinology and Hematology/Oncology). Sharing of research space and facilities while working in a programmatic manner to address the most challenging questions in the musculoskeletal sciences has enabled the faculty group to be consistently ranked in the top 5 of NIH â“ funded Musculoskeletal programs in the past 15 years. Collaborative research efforts have been focused on 6 key research programs that include Bone Biology and Disease, Cartilage Biology and arthritis, Musculoskeletal Stem Cell Biology, musculoskeletal Repair, Musculoskeletal Infection and Bone Cancer Biology. The faculty within the CMSR and the UR Medicine leadership are strategically committed to expanding our research portfolio in the area of Musculoskeletal Lymphatics that will complement existing research programs within the CMSR and the URMC. To this end, we are actively seeking individuals for a Tenure â“ track Assistant Prof. position with Appointments in Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation and Pharmacology/Physiology.

The University of Rochester is one of the country's top-tier research universities. Our 158 buildings house more than 200 academic majors, more than 2,000 faculty and instructional staff, and some 11,100 students.
Learning at the University of Rochester is also on a very personal scale. Rochester remains one of the smallest and most collegiate among top research universities, with smaller classes, a low 10:1 student to teacher ratio, and increased interactions with faculty.
