Faculty Positions – Asst / Assoc / Full Professors
The Department of Dermatology at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center invites applicants at all ranks for full-time faculty positions with a focus on translational research in Skin Cancer.
Successful candidates will be joining a program that emphasizes combining basic and clinical skin cancer research, patient care and teaching.
Candidates may hold an MD, MD/PhD or PhD degree or equivalent.
Demonstrated track record of successful peer-reviewed NIH funding and/or industry sponsored clinical research is desirable, as well as evidence of multidisciplinary collaborations.
Interested candidates should:
(1) Apply online at: http://pa334.peopleadmin.com/postings/3000 under Employment, Recruitment of Academic and Personnel Systems (RAPS), AND
(2) Email your curriculum vitae, along with names and addresses of three references to both:
Dr. Angela Christiano: email@example.com and
Krystle Tsai, Program Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org
Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Investigative Dermatology
A Post-doctoral position is available starting immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Irina Budunova at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, located in Chicago, IL. Position is supported by NIAID RO1 grant.
Our laboratory at the Department of Dermatology (one of the best Departments of Dermatology in US) has been involved in the development of novel safe approaches to the glucocorticoid receptor – targeting therapies to reduce notorious metabolic and atrophic side effects of glucocorticoids. As a member of our team, the applicant will have the opportunity to participate in work focused on the identification of specific molecular drivers of steroid-induced skin atrophy (we call them atrophogenes); search for the anti-atrophogenic compounds to develop skin protectors against steroids and ageing; and studies of molecular functions of already established and new atrophogenes like REDD1/DDIT4 in keratinocytes, adipocytes, and other skin cells.
The applicant will use wide range of approaches: from molecular and cellular biology (including CRISPR/Cas9 gene targeting) to work with transgenic and KO mice to bioinformatics. Experience in skin biology, molecular biology high-throughput genomic technologies, and bioinformatics analysis is a plus.
Interested individuals should send curriculum vitae and a list of three references in a single pdf to Dr. Irina Budunova (email@example.com).
