 Assistant Professor University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Biochemistry

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) is committed to conducting world-class research in obesity prevention and has recently secured an $11.3 million Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (CoBRE) grant from the NIH to establish the Nebraska Center for the Prevention of Obesity Diseases through Dietary Molecules (NPOD). Reflecting the institutional commitment to building infrastructure in obesity prevention research, UNL has released new tenure track positions in this first phase of hires. Within the center, UNL is seeking applicants for a nine-month (academic year) tenure-leading Assistant Professor faculty position (75% research and 25% teaching) in the Department of Biochemistry addressing biomarkers linked to human disease. Required qualifications include a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent in biochemistry, biology, molecular biology, nutrition, physiology or related field; a minimum of two years of postdoctoral experience; and a strong record of original research as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications. Preferred qualifications include experience in supervising and mentoring students; evidence of grant writing; evidence of engagement in professional societies at the national level; excellent communication skills; teaching experience; ability to work cooperatively on multidisciplinary projects; working knowledge in nutrition and metabolic disease; and working knowledge in biomarker protocols. The incumbent is expected to develop an internationally recognized, externally funded research program broadly addressing the discovery, validation and application of biomarkers to assess the risk for human disease, with a specific focus on metabolic disease, including obesity and related diseases. The incumbent will contribute to the teaching mission of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and in particular will develop and teach undergraduate and graduate courses biochemistry, cell and molecular biology and/or in biomarkers of complex disease. It is expected that the incumbent will contribute to recruitment, retention and placement activities; incorporation of outcomes assessment; engagement in instructional improvement; and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. The incumbent is expected publish research findings in peer-reviewed journals; participate in scientific meetings and other professional activities; and serve on department, college, and UNL committees as appropriate.

This position is part of the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources initiative in Healthy Humans, which offers a highly collaborative environment to develop biomedical focused research programs linked with modern biochemical methodologies, enzyme structure/function, metabolic engineering, metabolomics, genomics, and computational approaches. A competitive start-up package and appropriate laboratory and office space will be offered.

To learn more about the University of Nebraska, the Department of Biochemistry, and he Nebraska Center for the Prevention of Obesity Diseases through Dietary Molecules visit http://biochem.unl.edu and http://cehs.unl.edu/npod. To view all of the requirements and to apply, go to http://employment.unl.edu, search for the requisition number F_150162, click on “Apply to the job,” attach a letter of application, Curriculum Vitae, a succinct statement of research, and statement of teaching interests. Applicants must arrange for three confidential letters of reference to be sent directly to: Search Committee, Department of Biochemistry, University of Nebraska, N200 Beadle Center, Lincoln, NE 68588-0664, USA or by e-mail to biochemistrysearch@unl.edu. Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2015 and continue until the positions are filled or the searches are closed.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is committed to a pluralistic campus community through affirmative action, equal opportunity, work-life balance, and dual careers.

Center for Lipid Research, Rutgers University - Postdoctoral Position

 
An entry level postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. George M. Carman at the Center of Lipid Research within the Institute for Food, Health, and Nutrition at Rutgers University. The Carman laboratory is known for its studies on the molecular genetics and biochemical regulation of the Nem1-Spo7 (protein phosphatase /Pah1 (phosphatidic acid phosphatase) cascade that generates the diacylglycerol used to synthesize lipid droplet-associated triacylglycerol. The phosphatidic acid phosphatase enzymes in yeast (e.g., Pah) and human (e.g., lipins) have emerged as key enzymes in lipid metabolism that impact on the physiology that forms the basis of lipid-based diseases that include obesity, lipodystrophy, and inflammation. Research projects include structure-function analyses and posttranslational modifications (e.g., phosphorylation, dephosphorylation, and ubiquitination) of the phosphatidic acid phosphatase and its regulator the Nem1-Spo7 phosphatase. Additional information about the Carman laboratory that includes reprints of recent publications is found at http://foodsci.rutgers.edu/carman/index.html. The applicant is expected to have expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry, or cell biology. Submit a cover letter with your career objectives, a CV, and the email addresses of three references to Dr. George M. Carman (carman@aesop.rutgers.edu). Rutgers University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
