Faculty Positions in Biochemistry/Cell Biology/Immunology/Biomedical Sciences


The Positions:
The Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Biomedical Sciences (MCBS) in the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture (COLSA) at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) seeks to hire three tenure-track assistant professors and one tenure-track associate or full professor with demonstrated interests and expertise in the areas of the molecular life sciences. We specifically intend to enhance strengths in the areas of biochemistry/structural biology, cell biology, immunology, and biomedical science. We anticipate filling these positions in the Fall of 2016. Because multiple positions are available, we will strongly consider the recruitment of a cluster of faculty members with overlapping and synergistic research programs in the above-mentioned areas.

The disciplines encompassing the molecular, cellular, and biomedical sciences are undergoing a transformation instigated by a powerful combination of new technologies, computational innovation, and integrative biology that is being applied to address fundamental questions in biochemistry, structural biology, cell biology, immunology, and related biomedical disciplines. It is our vision that UNH should build on existing strengths in genomics/bioinformatics, molecular biology and biochemistry, and cell biology to advance our understanding of these disciplines as they relate to the basic biomedical sciences.

We seek excellent candidates for the three tenure-track assistant professor positions in the following areas of emphasis: (1) Biochemistry, including structural biology, physical biochemistry, chemical biology, metabolic pathways, and molecular pharmacology; (2) Cell biology, including cancer biology, signal transduction pathways, and developmental biology; (3) Immunology, including cellular immunology, immunotherapeutics, host-microbe interactions, and immunogenetics.

In addition, we seek a tenure-track associate or full professor who has a record of research accomplishments in the Biomedical Sciences, including a sustained history of NIH funding, experience in mentoring graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and junior faculty, administrative experience, and a demonstrated commitment to teaching excellence at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

UNH is committed to creating a more diverse community in which qualified individuals of differing perspectives, life experiences and cultural backgrounds pursue goals with mutual respect and a shared spirit of inquiry.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. and postdoctoral research experience in the appropriate field, and have demonstrated the potential to lead strong and productive research programs that are integrated with existing academic programs. They will be expected to compete successfully in national and regional funding initiatives, and to achieve national and international prominence in their fields. Candidates will also be expected to train graduate students and to develop and teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Undergraduate education, including provision of directed research opportunities, is an area of distinction that will be incrementally strengthened through these positions.

Application Instructions:
Information, including detailed position descriptions and complete application information is available at All applicants will be required to apply online at The online application will ask for a letter of application, current vitae, teaching and research statements, and names, addresses, email and phone number of three professional references. The candidate will be notified before any references are contacted. Screening of applications will begin on December 10, 2015 and will continue until the positions are filled.

University Description and Mission:
The University of New Hampshire, located in Durham, is a Research-I, Land, Sea and Space Grant University that has been recognized both nationally and internationally for research excellence and a commitment to sustainability. The College of Life Sciences and Agriculture is organized into four interacting academic units and includes the state’s Agricultural Experiment Station.
