Two faculty positions in Diagnostics and Therapeutics Research at Georgia State University

As part of GSU’s Second Century Initiative (2CI) to add 100 faculty members over the next five years in selected areas, the College of Arts and Sciences plans to fill two tenure-track faculty positions (rank open) in the areas of new target identification, imaging-guided therapy, drug delivery, drug fate and pharmacokinetic studies, pending budgetary approval. These positions require established investigators with transferable external funding. The planned faculty recruitment is part of an overall effort to strengthen the Center for Diagnostics and Therapeutics (CDT) at GSU (cdt.gsu.edu), and along the strategic directions of Georgia Research Alliance, a major organization providing support to biomedical research in Georgia. Each appointment will be made to an academic department in accordance to the individual’s degree and area of expertise and will be a core member of the Center, which is housed in the new Petit Science building with 350,000 square feet of space for interdisciplinary research and teaching activities and world-class facilities. The same building and the Natural Science Center also house the several academic units, Departments of Chemistry, Biology and Physics, and the Neuroscience Institute, as well as the Center for Biotechnology and Drug Design, an animal facility, a BSL4 lab and several BSL3 labs, Center for Viral Immunology, Center for Inflammation, Immunity, and Infection, the Molecular Basis of Disease Program, Center for Behavioral Neuroscience, and the Brains and Behavior Program for optimal interactions and collaborations.
Successful candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent doctoral degree and demonstrate the ability to establish a vigorous, externally funded research program and to mentor Ph.D. graduate students. Excellence in teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels is expected. Candidates at senior levels must have strong track records in research and teaching excellence, and in securing external funding.
Applicants should e-mail (CDT@gsu.edu) and mail a C.V., a detailed research plan(s), a statement of teaching philosophy, and a list of at least three references to Dr. Jenny Yang, CDT Faculty Search Committee, Center for Diagnostics and Therapeutics, Georgia State University, P.O.
