Employment Type: Full-time
Posted data: 2019-09-19
The Department of Cell Biology at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, seeks an Assistant Professor of Research to work in Dr. Karen Hirschi's laboratory to study the regulation of vascular development. This will be a tenure ineligible position. The work in the laboratory integrates cell and molecular biology, with genetic and genomic approaches and quantitative live cell imaging to study the mechanisms that underlie blood vessel formation. Of particular interest will be the investigation of the role of endothelial cell cycle control in the specification of arteries and veins during vascular remodeling. The role of the person holding this position also includes supervision of undergraduate and graduate students, advising technicians, as well as the writing of manuscripts and grants.
The successful candidate must have a PhD degree plus at least five years of post-doctoral training in vascular biology, and demonstrate a relevant publication record in top ranked journals and participation in national/international scientific conferences.
The successful candidate will be expected to master cutting edge technology in cellular imaging such as confocal and high resolution microscopy, in vitro culture of vascular cells and in vivo models of vascular development and pathophysiology. Knowledge of cell cycle regulation, arteriovenous differentiation and mechanisms controlling endothelial cell behavior are required for this position. Finally, the candidate should have demonstrated success in securing extramural funding for research grants.
In addition to the above job responsibilities, other duties may be assigned.
This is a restricted position, continuation is dependent on funding and satisfactory performance. Review of applications will begin on October 10, 2019, but the position will remain open until filled.
Anticipated hiring range for this position is $60,000 - $65,000 commensurate with qualifications and experience.
