The Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Neuroscience (MPN) in the Stritch School of Medicine at Loyola University Chicago invites applications for tenure-track Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor faculty positions. Candidates performing all neuroscience-related research are encouraged to apply, particularly those that complement existing department research programs in neuropharmacology, gut microbiota-brain interactions, neurodevelopment, nanoparticles, drug delivery, neurodegeneration, neuropsychiatric diseases, neural control of cardiovascular function, and exosome biology. The MPN department is undergoing an expansion period, with several rounds of faculty hiring planned. As such, newly hired faculty will have the opportunity to help shape the future research focus areas of the department. Successful candidates will be provided with a strong start-up package, modern laboratory space, a competitive salary, and a comprehensive health and retirement benefit structure. New MPN faculty will be expected to develop an extramurally funded research program and contribute to the graduate education mission of the MPN department.
Located on the LUC Health Sciences Campus (HSC) in Maywood, Illinois just 10 miles from downtown Chicago, the MPN department is housed within the Center for Translational Research and Education (CTRE). The CTRE was built in 2016 and, along with the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center, and the Parkinson School of Public Health, is home to over 70 tenure-track faculty members with active research programs. As a member of the vibrant biomedical community of the greater Chicago area, the LUC HSC is not only well-equipped to grow research programs from within, but also ideally situated to build collaborative networks.
As the first medical school in the country to accept DACA students, diversity is at the core of our strategic plan. LUC is an equal opportunity employer that values diversity in social, racial, and ethnic backgrounds, as well as religion, gender, sexual orientation, and philosophical outlooks. LUC promotes a healthy work-life balance and provides support for its faculty.
The tenure-track faculty position in the MPN department requires a PhD in Pharmacology, Neuroscience, Biomedical Research, or a related subject area.
It is anticipated that candidates at the Assistant Professor level will have obtained federal or private career development funding, while Associate and Full professors will hold active R01 (or equivalent) level funding.
Review of applications will begin as soon as completed applications are received and will continue until the positions are filled. Priority will be given to completed applications received by February 28, 2023. Reference letters will only be requested from candidates who advance in the interview process.
