Director of Basic and Translational Research - Biochemistry & Molecular Biology-(1600011M)
Established in 1807, The School of Medicine is the first public and the fifth oldest medical school in the United States, and the first to institute a residency training program. The School of Medicine was the founding school of the University of Maryland and today is an integral part of the 11-campus University System of Maryland. On the University of Maryland's Baltimore campus, the School of Medicine serves as the anchor for a large academic health center which aims to provide the best medical education, conduct the most innovative biomedical research and provide the best patient care and community service to Maryland and beyond. While its tradition of excellence remains constant, the School of Medicine and its reputation for academic achievement continue to grow.
The University of Maryland School of Medicine is seeking a Director of Basic and Translational Research as well as other junior basic and translational investigators to expand the current research in molecular and translational investigation between the Departments of Pathology & Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. This is a joint recruitment with the Department of Pathology and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology to foster interaction in key areas that maximize the potential of basic and translational research discovery. These investigators will build a federally funded research program, consistent with the goals of the two departments and School of Medicine. They will develop and sustain ongoing collaborative relationships with researchers in both departments and the School of Medicine.
These individuals will lead and collaborate in investigations into the fundamental and/or translational biochemistry, molecular biology, and pathology of cancer with an emphasis on potential for translation. The ultimate goal will be clinical application in metabolomics, biomarkers, therapeutic strategies, diagnosis, and disease monitoring. Research will also emphasize high priority cancers such as lung, colon, breast, prostate, and melanoma. In addition, this individual will participate in the recruitment of faculty, staff, and educators to further develop and build the investigative team.
