Appointment Status Tenure Department IU Bloomington Biology Position Summary
As part of a major, multi-year initiative to expand research activities across the Indiana University Bloomington campus, the Genome, Cell, and Developmental Biology program in the Department of Biology ( https: // biology.indiana.edu/graduate/genome-cell-development/index.html) invites applications at the Associate or Full Professor level in the area of Metabolism. Established Assistant Professors will also be considered. We are particularly interested in scientists who are using model organisms to study the regulation of metabolism in development and disease. Scientists studying the molecular mechanisms by which the environment influences metabolism and growth are also encouraged to apply. Start dates of Fall 2023 or Fall 2024 are possible.
Our vision is to continue building a multi-investigator group that will define IU as a preeminent center for studies of metabolism and metabolomics in model organisms. This effort is part of a significant expansion in the life sciences at IU Bloomington. The successful applicant will join a vibrant group of investigators with related research programs within the Department of Biology and across campus in the Departments of Chemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, as well as IU School of Medicine and the School of Public Health.
The selected candidate will be provided with a competitive startup package and salary and will have access to outstanding research resources, including state-of-the-art facilities for genomics and bioinformatics, light and electron microscopy (including cryo-EM), flow cytometry, protein analysis, mass spectrometry, and crystallography.
Bloomington is a college town that offers the sophistication of a cultural capital with international-caliber performances in opera, theater, music and dance – all in a walkable, family-friendly town. There are also extensive opportunities for local outdoor activities including hiking, camping, water sports and cycling.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in a relevant field, with a strong record of research accomplishments and funding. Successful candidates will be expected to maintain a vigorous externally funded research program and participate in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
