Assistant or Associate Professor Tenure Track (Multiple Positions)

Multiple Assistant or Associate Professor (Tenure-Track) faculty appointments will be made through one of the three Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS) basic science departments: Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Department of Neuroscience & Cell Biology, and the Department of Pharmacology. These three RWJMS basic science departments include investigators with active research programs in broad areas of biomedical science, including the molecular mechanisms of disease, cell signaling, genome structure and regulation, RNA biology, molecular and cellular bases of neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration, immunology, cancer biology, therapeutic targets and drug discovery.

The research laboratories and office space for these faculty positions will be housed within medical school research facilities on the Piscataway (Busch) campus of RBHS and Rutgers. Successful candidates will be provided with a competitive start up package, laboratory space, access to high-performance computing clusters and other core resources, and will be expected to develop and maintain a strong, externally funded research program and participate in collaborative projects with other Departments and Institutes at Rutgers. Major duties and responsibilities include developing a robust, externally funded research program to conduct studies in fields related to human health, development and disease, and to support the educational goals and activities of Rutgers University through teaching and service, including participation in the teaching of professional, graduate and undergraduate students, and mentorship of trainees. The successful candidates will gradually assume teaching responsibilities commensurate with the teaching load of other tenure-track faculty in the departments.

Research programs utilizing interdisciplinary and translational approaches that develop interactions with the Departments of Medicine, Pediatrics, Surgery, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, or Neurology, the Rutgers Institute for Translational Medicine and Science, the Rutgers Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine, the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, and other clinical departments within RBHS are encouraged.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities: 
· Develop a robust externally-funded research program in an established or emerging area of biomedical science related to human health, development, and disease.
· Support the educational goals and activities of Rutgers University through teaching and service, including participation in the teaching of medical and graduate students, and mentorship of trainees.
· Understands and adheres to legacy UMDNJ’s compliance standards as they appear in legacy UMDNJ’s Corporate Compliance Policy and Code of Conduct and Conflict of Interest Policy.
