Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine has committed substantial resources toward expanding interdisciplinary research in the pharmacological sciences. A new Department of Pharmacology was commissioned in Spring 2014 with founding faculty members from the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Biological Chemistry, and led by Dr. A. L. George, an internationally recognized authority on ion channels. We are now seeking candidates to fill several new full-time, tenure track faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate and full Professor ranks. We are especially interested in candidates who investigate basic and translational topics of modern pharmacology applied to any of a wide range of molecular targets and diseases including cardiovascular disorders, pain, neurological disorders including but not limited to epilepsy, cancer, addiction, and psychiatric disease. Expertise in pharmacogenomics, developing novel disease models including stem cell-derived platforms, drug discovery, proteomics and other cutting edge methodologies is highly desirable. Northwestern University offers a collegial and collaborative scientific environment that is rich with core facilities, robust cross-disciplinary graduate training programs, and diverse expertise.
Candidates should have a Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. or M.D. degree, significant research experience, and evidence of sustainable extramural funding. Salary is commensurate with experience. Start date will be for the 2015-2016 academic year. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
