Department Biochemistry-0831 Requisition Number F230138 Posting Open Date 08/16/2023 Application Review Date: (To ensure consideration, please submit all application materials before review date) 11/01/2023 Posting Close Date Open Until Filled Yes Description of Work
The Department of Biochemistry at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) invites applications for a tenure-track nine-month appointment (academic year) faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor. The position is part of a strategic growth plan by the Nebraska Center for Integrated Biomolecular Communication (CIBC), which is an NIH-funded Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (CoBRE) at UNL.
Applicants who will develop a vigorous, internationally recognized research program that addresses molecular mechanisms of human disease are sought. Areas of research are broadly defined and may include cell signaling and gene regulation, cellular biochemistry, enzymology, macromolecular structure and function, and redox biochemistry. Current faculty in the Department of Biochemistry have research interests in molecular mechanisms of disease, metabolism and metabolic engineering, redox and mitochondrial biology, cellular biochemistry, virology, structure-function of proteins, plant biochemistry, microbiology, and computational and systems biochemistry. The Department provides advanced training in biochemistry through an interdisciplinary Ph.D. graduate program and an NIH-funded pre-doctoral training program in molecular mechanisms of disease.
The incumbent will also provide expertise to the educational mission of the Department of Biochemistry and the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources by contributing to the teaching of undergraduate and graduate courses in biochemistry.
UNL is a member of the Big Ten Academic Alliance and offers a highly collaborative environment to develop biomedically-focused research programs with affiliated resources provided by the University Research Centers (Center for Integrated Biomolecular Communication, Redox Biology Center, Center for the Prevention of Obesity and Disease, and Center for Virology). Other resources include the NIH-funded Molecular Mechanisms of Disease graduate training program, Center for Plant Science Innovation, Holland Computing Center, the Quantitative Life Sciences Initiative, Nebraska Innovation Campus, and the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The University Research Centers support cutting-edge biophysical, biochemical, and structural biology approaches, including regular access to the new cryo-EM facility in the Nebraska Center for Biotechnology. State-of-the art research facilities also support multi-omics, bioinformatics, supercomputing, advanced imaging and metabolic engineering. A highly competitive start-up package and appropriate laboratory and office space will be offered.
Recognizing that diversity enhances creativity, innovation, impact, and a sense of belonging, the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR) and the Department of Biochemistry are committed to creating learning, research, Extension programming, and work environments that are inclusive of all forms of diversity. Consistent with the University's N2025 Strategic Plan, every person and every interaction are treated as important to our collective well-being and our ability to deliver on our mission.
