Job Description

A non-tenure-track Assistant Research Professor faculty position is available in the Department of Medicine at the University of Missouri, Columbia, MO.

Eligible candidates must have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, physiology, biology or a related area, in addition to a minimum of three years of relevant postdoctoral experience.
