Position Highlights

The Department of Pharmacology at the University of Arizona is accepting applications for a (tenure track) Associate or Full Professor position in the College of Medicine. Pharmacology seeks applicants research interests in elucidating mechanisms underlying the body's response to critical illness based in intestinal pathophysiology with a focus on evaluating the mechanisms behind growth factor- and probiotic-mediated intestinal protection in murine models' sepsis. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in Medical Education as the position will have responsibility of teaching and course development taught at the Undergraduate Medical Student level, as well as Graduate and Undergraduate, non-medical students. Experience in medical education curriculum mapping would be an added benefit.

Pharmacology has an internationally recognized program with faculty dedicated to the study of skeletal, neuropathic, inflammatory and cancer pain, preclinical studies of migraine and post-traumatic headache as members of the Comprehensive Center for Pain and Addiction and the Center of Excellence for Addiction Sciences. The expertise of the current faculty members encompasses a spectrum of genetic, molecular neurobiological, electrophysiological, cardiovascular, neuropharmacological and behavioral methods conducive to collaborative efforts designed to address the underlying neural circuits and molecular mechanisms of pain and its chronification.

Competitive startup package and salary support will be offered. Applicants with interests in the overlapping mechanisms of pain and addiction are also encouraged to apply. It is expected that the successful candidate will establish collaborative projects with current faculty.
