Assistant Professor (Tenure Track)
University of Vermont

Job Overview:
The Department of Molecular Physiology & Biophysics at the University of Vermont is seeking to recruit a Cell Biologist/Biophysicist at the Assistant Professor level on the tenure-track, although Associate and Full Professor candidates will be considered.
