University of Oregon: Faculty search in Biochemistry & Experimental Physical Chemistry

The University of Oregon is conducting faculty searches in biochemistry and experimental physical chemistry, to start in Fall 2018 or later. A Ph.D. degree is required. Successful candidates will have the potential for establishing an outstanding independent research program, maintain excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and support and enhance a diverse learning and working environment. Biochemistry: Applications are invited for a tenure-track position in biochemistry at the Assistant Professor level. Biochemistry research takes place in the context of the Institute of Molecular Biology, which promotes interdisciplinary interactions between life science researchers in the departments of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Biology, and Physics. We seek applicants from all areas of biochemistry and structural biology who use advanced approaches to study mechanisms of cellular function. See the online posting for details and application instructions. To assure full consideration, application materials should be received by October 9, 2017; review of application materials will continue until the position is filled. Experimental Physical Chemistry: Applications are invited for a tenure-related position in experimental physical chemistry, expected at the Assistant Professor level (though exceptional candidates in theoretical chemistry or at more advanced ranks will be considered). We seek individuals studying problems of fundamental importance to experimental physical chemistry, which may also be applied uniquely to advance related chemical disciplines; of particular interest are scholars who will enhance existing departmental strengths in biophysical chemistry, materials related physical chemistry, spectroscopy, statistical mechanics and quantum chemistry. Postdoctoral experience is preferred. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to pursue research in a variety of interdisciplinary institutes. See the online posting for details and application instructions. To assure full consideration, candidates should submit application materials by October 3, 2017; the position will remain open until filled.
