General Summary of Position:
The University of Massachusetts Lowell Department of Biological Sciences invites applications to fill a full-time tenure-track faculty position, at the Assistant or Associate Professor level, to start September 2017. We seek an individual who studies developmental processes governing biological systems including but not limited to cardiovascular biology, neurobiology and immunology/hematopoiesis. We have recently built a state-of-the-art aquatics facility and are particularly interested in candidates using the zebrafish or small aquatic animals as a model organism in their research. The ideal candidate's research focus should complement and leverage existing departmental and campus strengths. In addition to the broad range of research interests within the Biological Sciences Department, UMass Lowell has a diverse group of science and engineering faculty who use multiple model systems to evaluate new technologies (e.g. nanomedicine, biomaterials, robotics and tissue engineering), therefore candidates interested in establishing collaborations with faculty in these fields are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to establish a vigorous, externally funded research program, and contribute to the department's teaching mission. Teaching responsibilities may include the development of undergraduate courses, in addition to upper-level and graduate courses.

The University of Massachusetts Lowell is located in the heart of the life sciences supercluster of the northeast region of Massachusetts, which is home to more than 100 life science companies. Together with its proximity to the Boston/Cambridge biotechnology and biomedical hub, there are ample opportunities for scientific interaction, exchange, and collaboration.

The University of Massachusetts Lowell is committed to increasing diversity in its faculty, staff, and student populations, as well as curriculum and support programs, while promoting an inclusive environment. We seek candidates who can contribute to that goal and encourage you to apply and to identify your strengths in this area.
