Responsibilities:
The College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) at North Carolina State University invites applications for two tenure track positions with 12 month appointments at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.
Preference will be given to candidates with proposed or established research programs in the areas of a) gut neuroendocrine signaling and b) gut epithelial stem cell dynamics. Applicants should have a strong independent research program and expertise that will synergize with existing key program strengths in the areas of mucosal responses to injury, stress, and host-pathogen interactions using unique Gnotobiotic and Large Animal Core facility resources. The goal is to competitively address high priority research areas including inflammatory bowel disease, regenerative medicine, microbiome, metabolic syndrome and obesity. These positions are sought to strengthen interdisciplinary interactions between investigators involved in health care for humans and animals within the Gastroenterology Program and colleagues in our shared NIH-funded UNC-NC State Center for Gastrointestinal Biology and Disease, Center for Comparative Medicine and Translational Research, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and other units across NC State, the UNC system, government agencies, the Research Triangle Park, and other universities and industries, locally and globally.
Besides maintaining a rigorous extramurally funded research program, candidates are expected to participate in training graduate students and teaching in the Comparative Biomedical Sciences graduate program or DVM curriculum.
Salary: Commensurate with candidate’s experience and qualifications
Applications should include a cover letter specifying research area of interest, current curriculum vitae, statement highlighting research accomplishments and future goals, and the contact information of three references.
