The Department of Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics at the University of Virginia invites applications for a tenured/tenure-track faculty position in cryo electron tomography. The Department seeks to expand its strengths in structural, cardiovascular, cancer, and membrane and chemical biology towards high resolution cryo electron tomography of cellular and subcellular structures. The Department is closely affiliated with UVA’s Molecular Electron Microscopy Core facility providing access to state-of-the art cryo-EM resources (Titan Krios and Glacios with Gatan K3 and Falcon 4 direct electron detectors, respectively, and F20 with CMOS camera). The University will also invest in a new cryo focused ion beam scanning electron microscope and supporting technologies in conjunction with this position. It is expected that the new hire will develop a strong independent research program to use and further develop this technology to solve important biomedical problems. Applicants are expected to be highly collaborative and integrate well with a growing number of researchers and physician scientists in basic and clinical departments of the UVA School of Medicine.

Highly competitive start-up packages will be offered.

Successful applicants will have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree, will be highly creative, and must have demonstrated exceptional scholarly success in their field. Demonstration of sustained grant or equivalent support is required for appointments at a mid-career or senior rank.
