The Department of Pharmacology at the University of Minnesota invites applications to fill multiple tenure-track/tenured faculty positions. Applicants using genetic, molecular, biochemical, cellular, and/or integrative approaches to study problems relevant to pharmacological sciences are encouraged to apply. Investigators with translational disease-oriented research programs, as well as those with expertise in drug discovery or chemical biology are especially encouraged to apply. Current focus areas in the department include neuropharmacology, cancer, and cell signaling.
Qualifications: A Ph.D. in the biomedical sciences or an M.D. degree, and relevant postdoctoral research experience. Applicants must have a strong record of research accomplishments as documented by publications in leading peer-reviewed journals. A track record of successful NIH funding is highly desirable.
The successful Assistant Professor applicant will be expected to develop an innovative, competitive research program supported by extramural funding and to participate in departmental teaching and service activities.
Applicants for Associate Professor or Full Professor positions must demonstrate distinction in published research, evidence of consistent extramural funding, and a commitment to teaching and service.

About University of Minnesota - Department of Pharmacology
The Department of Pharmacology at the University of Minnesota is active in both laboratory research and teaching, and we have courses and research opportunities for graduate students, undergraduates, and professional students. As our knowledge of the molecular basis for disease grows, more pathways are discovered that have potential for therapeutic intervention. Drugs are essential to treat and pr...event disease, and pharmacologists have growing opportunities to work in academia, industry, hospitals, and government to improve human health. We are preparing students for the biomedical careers of the future.
The Department of Pharmacology has a three-fold mission:
To provide high-quality teaching of the principles of pharmacology and the application of pharmacology to the biomedical sciences for undergraduates, graduate students, and professional school students.
To conduct high-impact research that advances the fundamental knowledge of drug action ranging from molecular mechanisms to clinical translation, by using interdisciplinary approaches in our research and involving students in our discovery efforts.
To perform meaningful service to the Medical School, the University, and local, national and international communities by acting as an important source for pharmacologic and scientific expertise.
