Current interests include cell signaling of pain, endocrinology, inflammation and cancer, calcium signaling, infection and immunity, skeletal and craniofacial biology, and developmental biology. We wish to recruit a highly creative scientist who will lead and maintain a cutting-edge research program that will complement and synergize with current research in the Department, and who will positively interact with faculty of NYU Dentistry as well as foster collaborations with the greater NYU and New York research communities. Individuals with interests in receptors, channels, signal transduction and cellular regulation are encouraged to apply.

Candidates with K99/R00 or similar awards are strongly encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will be expected to maintain an externally funded research program and to contribute to the intellectual life of the Department by mentoring and instructing students and postdoctoral fellows and by contributing university and community service. Teaching requirements will be commensurate with the Department’s needs and the applicant’s qualifications.

Successful candidates will receive a competitive start-up package, substantial salary support commensurate with experience and rank, and will have access to a comprehensive benefits package through NYU. The Department of Molecular Pathobiology provides a respectful, equitable, diverse and inclusive community that fosters creativity, innovation and collaboration.
