Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Biomedical Science

Position Summary:

Florida Atlantic University's College of Medicine is seeking an Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of Biomedical Science, Boca Raton, FL.

The College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) seeks applicants who are committed to supporting an innovative and collaborative workforce focused on identifying and translating scientific discoveries into medical advances for our patients, communities, and beyond. With a strong record of excellence, our faculty are conducting research across the bedside-to-bench continuum, relying on a top- notch leadership team and operating within a vibrant scientific community within Palm Beach County, which is home to FAU, Scripps, Max Planck Florida Institute, and Life Sciences cluster. Areas of ongoing research include identification of causative genomic variants; the interplay between genetic, social, and environmental determinants of human health; and the use of relevant model organisms to uncover the mechanisms contributing to disease susceptibility or resilience. Current biological focus areas include neurological disorders, cancer, pain, addiction, and infectious diseases.

As part of a major expansion, the College of Medicine is recruiting for multiple full-time faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate or Professor levels with demonstrated expertise in leveraging computational tools to identify new diagnostic and/or therapeutic targets, and/or functional genomics screening technologies to uncover disease-causing mechanisms, especially novel in vitro models (e.g., single cell-based analysis, iPS cells, organoids). Successful candidates are expected to have a demonstrated ability to support an externally funded research program (Associate Professor or above), and a strong interest in participating in transdisciplinary collaborations. In addition to traditional funding sources, the College of Medicine supports innovative projects through philanthropic fundraising efforts.

The Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University seeks scholars who are committed to supporting the learning needs of students from diverse backgrounds and to engaging communities underrepresented in higher education.
