Tenure-track Assistant Professorship in Biology and Medicine
Biological Sciences Division
Location Chicago, IL
The University of Chicago’s Biological Sciences Division (BSD) and Pritzker School of Medicine seek applications for up to three tenure-track assistant professor positions. The BSD comprises ten basic science departments (https://biologicalsciences.uchicago.edu/about/basic-science-departments), thirteen research-intensive clinical departments (https://biologicalsciences.uchicago.edu/about/clinical-departments), and numerous interdisciplinary graduate programs, institutes, and centers. These assistant professorships are for those who will best complement and extend the research and educational contributions of the existing faculty, and are not restricted to any specific discipline. Appointment will be in an appropriate department of the BSD.
This search complements numerous department-based searches (see https://academicjobs.uchicago.edu/positions ); we encourage multiple applications to all searches of interest.
The University is an exciting center of scientific discovery and innovation, and opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration and participation as graduate student trainers abound. Most university divisions and centers, including the Biological Sciences Division, University of Chicago Medical Center, Physical and Social Sciences Divisions, and Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering, are contained within one compact campus in Chicago’s vibrant Hyde Park neighborhood, where many faculty and students live. Competitive research space and start-up funding will be available, as will the potential for interactions with our off-campus affiliates, Argonne National Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory. The BSD supports its faculty through offices such as Faculty Affairs (https://voices.uchicago.edu/bsdfacultyaffairs/ ), Diversity and Inclusion (https://voices.uchicago.edu/bsddiversity/ ), Core Facilities (https://biologicalsciences.uchicago.edu/resources/osrf-core-facilities ), and Academic Affairs (https://biologicalsciences.uchicago.edu/resources/oaa-academic-affairs-landing ).
