Functional Mouse Genomics
Division of Nutritional Sciences
The Division of Nutritional Sciences is seeking candidates for a 9-month, full-salaried, tenure-track assistant, associate or full professor in Metabolism and Functional Mouse Genomics at Cornell University. The candidates for this position should be outstanding research scientists with a recognized scholarly reputation for their currant rank, and experience in metabolism, cell biology, genetics, biochemistry, developmental biology and/or experimental genomics with an interest in exploring the interactions among nutrients, metabolism and the genome in health and disease. Research areas of interest include energy metabolism, systems biology, stem cells, mammalian developmental and metabolic programming, epigenetics and/or complex metabolic diseases. Preference will be given to candidates with expertise in mouse models.
The qualifications of the candidate will determine the rank of the tenured/tenure-track appointment at the level of assistant, associate or full professor. Commensurate with rank, research excellence should be demonstrated by the existence or potential for building an active, externally-funded research program as well as by a strong record of publication in recognized journals. Scholarship related to nutrition and human health, in the broadest sense, should be central to the candidate's research program. Interest in teaching at the undergraduate and/or graduate level is required; participation in the Division’s graduate and undergraduate teaching programs related to advanced mammalian metabolism is expected.
This Division of Nutritional Sciences is a broadly based interdisciplinary unit that integrates theories and methods from across many academic disciplines to understand the complex relationships among biology, nutrition, food systems and lifestyle patterns, social and institutional environments and governmental policies in human health. The professor has the potential to develop collaborations with faculty who have broad interests in basic and applied aspects of mammalian biology and metabolism, systems biology and human nutrition.
responsibility is to establish and maintain an independent and extramurally
funded research program. Distribution of professional effort will be
approximately 50% research, 50% teaching.
Applicants must apply through Academic Jobs Online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/7028 and upload a cover letter, their CV, a research statement and a teaching statement.
