Tenure-Track Position in Synthetic Biology

The Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry seeks applications for a tenure-track position, at the Assistant Professor rank. We are seeking a creative and visionary scientist in the areas of synthetic biology, metabolic engineering, and protein engineering.

We are particularly interested in multidisciplinary scientists that apply quantitative methods from electrical, chemical, or biological engineering.  Areas of specific interest include, but are by no means limited to:  1. dynamics of genetic circuits, 2. pathway engineering for pharmaceutical, chemical, or fuel applications, 3. computational methods for system-level flux simulations to guide metabolic engineering, 4. single molecule methods to characterize cellular processes, 5. genome-scale and high-throughput measurements of transcription and translation, and 6. application of metagenomic data to engineering problems.

Applicants should have a PhD or MD degree.  The successful candidate will be expected to establish a dynamic and interactive research program and will actively participate in graduate training in the Graduate Group in Biophysics and other programs.  Laboratory space will be in UCSF’s vibrant Mission Bay campus.

UCSF seeks candidates whose experience, teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.

Please visit to upload applications for Search P-143.  CV, summary of current research (up to 3 pages) and outline of future research (up to 3 pages) should be uploaded according to the online application website instructions.  Instructions for letters of recommendation are also on the site.  Contact with questions.

Applications will be considered starting October 1, 2010 and application reviews will be continued until the position is filled.  EDIT: The deadline is apparently November 15th 2010.
