The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Chicago invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor rank. We seek scientists studying macromolecular dynamics and structure, mechanisms of molecular function and related areas. Appropriate topics include proteins, nucleic acids and their assemblies; membrane proteins; cellular processes in prokaryotes and eukaryotes (for example, proteostasis, condensates and immunology); biomolecular design; chemical biology, and computational analysis, among others. Resources include cryoEM and cryoET capabilities (Titan Krios/K3). The University is affiliated with Argonne National Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory.
