The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BIOM) of the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Indiana, will be hiring a new Assistant Research Professor (non tenure-track) who possesses expertise in Cell, Molecular, and Developmental Biology with application to developmental birth defects and hormone peptide therapeutics. Candidates with experience in molecular endocrinology are preferred, specifically in the areas of infertility and/or diabetes. This appointment will conduct scientific research in the area(s) of bioinformatics of gene regulation and signal transduction pathways, including high-throughput analysis of gene expression and profile of cellular responses to hormone action. These projects utilize multiple next-generation screening and immune-luminescence methods. This position will also be part of the Pillar in Chemical Biology of the Precision Health Initiative at IUSM.
A PhD or M.D. and at least 5 years of training/experience in cell, molecular, and developmental biology is required. Experience with the sexual development, diabetes-related endocrinology and familiarity with vertebrate evolution biology are preferred. Publications on how a gene-regulatory network mediates the phenotypical outcomes and how hormone modulates the cell responses in signaling and transcription will be an added advantage. Successful candidates will have evidence of working in a collaborative environment; experience with mentoring graduate and postgraduate trainees is preferred. Rank will be determined based on experience.
