Two Assistant Professor Openings - Biophysical Chemistry/Biochemistry

 The Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Denver is expanding our Molecular Life Sciences Initiative through cluster hires.  The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level to begin September 1, 2015.  We seek candidates with research interests in biophysical chemistry/biochemistry that include, but are not limited to the study of protein structure and function and protein-protein interactions.  The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in chemistry or biochemistry, postdoctoral experience, and a demonstrated potential for leadership in their field, including a record of high-impact research accomplishments.  Expectations include the teaching of undergraduate courses and of graduate courses in areas of expertise and the development of a strong, extramurally funded research program.  Candidates must apply online at www.du.edu/hr/employment/ .

 The online application should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a one-page statement of teaching philosophy, a five-page summary of research interests, and the names and email addresses of three references.  Review will begin November 3, 2014 and continue until the positions are filled.   Questions should be addressed to Prof. Martin Margittai, Faculty Search Committee Chair at biochemsearch@du.edu.  The University of Denver is committed to enhancing the diversity of its faculty and staff and encourages applications from women, minorities, members of the LBGT community, people with disabilities and veterans.  The University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
