Two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions are available in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Biomedical Engineering/Campbell Clinic at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.
Applications are invited from individuals who will develop an internationally recognized, externally funded research program that builds on the strengths and interconnects with the departmental expertise in the fields of metabolic bone disease, genetic bone disease, system biology, skeletal morphology and physiology. Qualified candidates should have a strong background in skeletal physiology and bone adaptive response to dynamic mechanical challenges. Specifically, candidates involved in research in bone matrix proteins and their implication in the regulation of mineral metabolism and bone remodeling in basic metabolism and pathological conditions are encouraged to apply. Investigation in one or more clinically relevant fields such as fracture repair, osteoporosis or rickets/osteomalacia is desirable. Individuals with extensive expertise in analytical and quantitative imaging (bone histomorphometry, three dimensional imaging, histopathology), cellular and molecular approaches, mouse genetics or biochemistry are particularly sought. Candidates will also have the opportunity to interface with medical device industrial partners in the Memphis area as well as with clinical faculty to aid in the translational aspects of research in their field. Anticipated teaching responsibilities include: skeletal physiology, adaptive response to mechanical stress, cell and molecular biology of the skeleton and introduction to bone imaging. Candidates must have a PhD in bone cell and molecular biology or related field with appropriate postdoctoral experience, a strong record in high quality journal publications, and potential to establish an externally funded research group.
