Position Description:    

The RNA Therapeutics Institute (RTI) at the University of Massachusetts Medical School invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position. Successful candidates will conduct innovative research to understand normal physiology and development, probe disease mechanisms, or develop novel diagnostics or therapies. Candidates need not necessarily conduct research directly focused on RNA biology or development of RNA therapeutics, but should indicate how their research will synergize with ongoing research within the RTI and the greater UMass Medical School community.

Research areas of interest include, but are not limited to: (1) genetics, biochemistry, and biophysics in model and non-model organisms, (2) human genetics and pathophysiology, (3) structural biology, (4) chemical biology, and (4) use of nucleic acids for diagnosis or therapy. Physician scientists, synthetic chemists, materials scientists, computational researchers, bioengineers, geneticists, cell and molecular biologists, biochemists, and biophysicists are all encouraged to apply. Also desired are scientists with significant industrial experience who wish to return to academia.

The RTI is housed in a state-of-the-art research building, and is central to a campus-wide interdisciplinary initiative in RNA therapeutics and gene therapy designed to facilitate collaboration among basic scientists, preclinical investigators, and clinicians. As a recipient of a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the NIH, UMass Medical School seeks to build an environment in which basic, applied, and clinical researchers collaborate to inform our understanding of human disease and accelerate development of novel diagnostics and therapies.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, one-page description of your current research, two-page description of future research plans, and contact information for three references to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/14272. Do not include citations or other potentially self-identifying information in the research description or future plans. Applications will be reviewed expeditiously, with interviews commencing in January. Inquiries (but not application materials) may be directed to Tiffanie Gardner at Tiffanie.Gardner@umassmed.edu. Applications at the Assistant, Associate and Full Professor levels will be considered. The position will remain open until filled.

As an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer, UMMS recognizes the power of a diverse community and encourages applications from individuals with varied experiences, perspectives and backgrounds.
