Faculty Positions in Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics

The Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics at Columbia University in the City of New York is seeking candidates for tenured/tenure-track faculty positions. Applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and have demonstrated excellence in research. The faculty appointment will be in the Vagelos College of Physicians & Surgeons (VP&S) of Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) and Columbia University (CU).

The Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics has launched a major recruitment effort to expand its research in key aspects of modern pharmacology that have demonstrable clinical relevance or translational impact, particularly as related to cancer, neuroscience, or cardiovascular research. We are particularly interested in recruiting in the areas of chemical biology, pharmacogenomics, drug discovery, and systems pharmacology. Candidates should have demonstrated a high level of productivity in their field and the potential to secure external funding. They will be expected to develop an internationally-recognized and extramurally-funded research program and be committed to the educational mission of the Department.

Successful candidates will have a laboratory in the newly renovated space at CUIMC. Faculty in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Therapeutics are associated with the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and may have membership in numerous Institutes and Centers, including the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Institute of Cancer Genetics, the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center, the Institute of Human Nutrition, the Stem Cell Institute, and the Taub Institute, and have the opportunity to interact with faculty at Columbia University’s Morningside and Manhattanville Campuses.
