Physician-Scientist Faculty Search in Basic Cardiovascular Research

Duke Cardiovascular Research Center (CVRC) Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine

The Duke CVRC is interested in hiring physician-scientists as tenure-track faculty members at the rank of Assistant Professor. An appointment at the Associate or Full Professor level may be possible for exceptional senior applicants.

The Duke CVRC seeks to: (1) support research that generates new knowledge through discoveries that increase our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of cardiovascular disease; (2) advance novel diagnostic strategies and biomarkers for stratifying risk; (3) identify new targets for therapy; and (4) develop new opportunities for enhancing clinical care.

We invite applications from accomplished candidates with clinical and research expertise that is broadly applicable to cardiovascular disease and the mission of the CVRC. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) electrophysiology, regenerative medicine, genomics, and cellular signaling. Candidates will be considered if they are active clinicians and have demonstrated excellence in basic biomedical research with a track record of outstanding scientific accomplishment. Applicants with an MD or MD/PhD will be considered the most competitive. Applicants must be either U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals or individuals lawfully admitted for permanent residence, and also be eligible for NIH and other federal funding. Women and candidates from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a 3-page total summary of accomplishments and research plans, and at least 3 letters of recommendation by January 18, 2021.
