The Department of Biomedical Sciences (BMS) seeks to fill a tenure-track or tenured position at the rank of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor. Preference will be given to candidates with research experience in an area of neuroendocrinology that may range from cellular/molecular studies to whole-organism physiology. The successful candidate is expected to maintain an independent, extramurally-funded research program in an area that complements existing departmental strengths. The departmentís strengths are focused in two University Programs of Research and Scholarly Excellence (PRSEs); Animal Reproduction and Biotechnology Laboratory (ARBL) http://www.cvmbs.colostate.edu/bms/arbl/ and the Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Neurosciences Program (MCIN) http://mcin.colostate.edu/. Research programs in ARBL broadly address regulatory mechanisms that underlie mammalian reproduction including mechanisms of hormone action in reproductive tissues and assisted reproductive technologies. Interests of faculty in MCIN range from ion channel physiology to cognitive neuroscience. Existing neuroendocrine research areas in the department and within these PRSEs include stress, reproduction, energy balance regulation and hormone function. Opportunities for collaboration exist with faculty in clinical and basic science departments and programs that span the campus. Core facilities available include central AAALAC approved small and large animal care facilities, well-equipped general instrumentation rooms, a fluorescence-activated cell sorter/flow cytometer laboratory, a laser capture microdissection laboratory, tissue culture facilities, a radioimmunoassay facility, a microscope imaging network http://mendel.natsci.colostate.edu/min/ and the Universityís Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility http://www.pmf.colostate.edu/.
The individual selected for this position will be expected to teach within the undergraduate, graduate and/or professional veterinary medicine programs. Teaching responsibilities will be in the general area of physiology or pharmacology. The Department sponsors an undergraduate Biomedical Sciences major and both MS and PhD graduate programs. Departmental faculty also participate in DVM/PhD and postdoctoral training. Additional information about the BMS Department and faculty can be found at www.cvmbs.colostate.edu/bms. Fort Collins is a community of ~150,000 people located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The city offers outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities and excellent quality of life. Additional information on the city of Fort Collins can be found at http://www.fcgov.com.
Applicants must have a PhD, DVM, MD or equivalent degree and provide evidence of competitiveness for independent national-level funding for their research program. A letter of application, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and a list of three references should be sent electronically to Dr. Shane Hentges care of Karen Solomon, at Karen.Solomon@Colostate.edu. Review of applications will begin December 15, 2013, and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
