The School of Pharmacy at the University of Connecticut invites qualified candidates to apply for the position of Boehringer Ingelheim Endowed Chair in Mechanistic Toxicology within the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. This is a full-time (9-month appointment) tenure-track position at the Associate or Full Professor level.
Duties and Responsibilities:
We are seeking a scientist with a strong background in the field of mechanisms of tissue injury with a focus on prevention, early detection, or novel treatments. Preference will be given to investigators with expertise in immunotoxicology or respiratory toxicology and how biotherapeutic options in these areas (e.g., monoclonal antibodies, siRNA, viral vectors) impact patient safety. We are also interested in other emerging research fields in mechanistic toxicology such as epigenetic regulation, genetic determinants of susceptibility to hepatotoxicity, transcriptomics, metabolomics, mechanisms of chemical-induced hepatocarcinogenesis, and non-coding RNA regulation. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to research and scholarship (approximately 60% of the time) through extramural funding, high-quality publications, and impact as measured through citations, and to sustain national and international recognition as a scholar.
