Assistant Professor position, U. Penn

December 1, 2011 § Leave a comment

This one is a little late — the date for starting to review applications is today — but since it just showed up in my in-box I’m assuming they’re still interested in hearing from you.  As a side note, this ad came as a PDF, which is always a bit of a nuisance since you have to extract the text from the PDF to get it into the blog format.  This one had a problem I’ve never seen before: copy and paste produced six separate columns of text, about 10 characters long.  After cutting and pasting for a while in an attempt to reassemble the ad, I finally gave up and retyped  it.  Does anyone know why this happened?

Also, the URL supplied in the ad crashed my browser, so I am offering you a different one.  Select “Cell and Developmental Biology” in the Departments drop-down menu.  Never say that I’m not dedicated to your career.


The Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Assistant Professor position in the tenure track. The successful applicant will have experience in the field of cell biology with a focus on cellular processes important to, or in the context of, embryo or tissue formation in any model organism.  Applicants must have an M.D. or Ph. D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree.

The successful applicant will have demonstrated outstanding sucess in research and must have a commitment to the graduate and medical education mission of the Department. We expect that successful candidates will apply state-of-the-art methods (e.g., realtime imaging, genetic, biochemical, structural, genomic and mathematical modeling approaches) to address questions in any area at the interface between cell biology and development.  Successful candidates will also develop federally funded research programs.

Please address your application to Dr. Mary Mullins, Chair of the Faculty Search Committee.  Applications will begin to be evaluated on December 1.

The University of Pennsylvania is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. Women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
