As part of the Global Impact Initiative, Michigan State University is making a significant investment to advance research in reproductive and developmental biology. MSU has a growing cohort of well-funded, highly interactive faculty involved in research and discovery at the interface of human and animal infertility, developmental origins of health and disease and causes and remediation of adverse pregnancy outcomes which form the foundation of the MSU Reproductive and Developmental Sciences Program http://rdsp.canr.msu.edu/. Applications are currently being accepted for a tenure system faculty position at the Assistant Professor level. The ideal candidate will be committed to interdisciplinary and collaborative research that complements current focal areas within the Reproductive and Developmental Sciences Program.
Selected candidate will be expected to develop and maintain a strong, extramurally funded research program, and contribute to undergraduate and graduate education in their area of expertise. Appointments will be on an academic year basis and could be on either the East Lansing or Grand Rapids campus and within the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, College of Human Medicine and (or) other partner colleges, depending on candidate's research interests and expertise. Selected candidate will be supported by state-of-the-art research facilities, expert administrative and scientific staff and by MSU's strong track record of commitment to research growth and excellence. Generous start-up funds will be provided and salary is negotiable.
Individuals with a PhD, MD, DVM, or a combination of advanced degrees and an established track record of scholarship, evidence of potential for extramural funding and expertise in all areas of mammalian reproductive and developmental biology are encouraged to apply.
