In anticipation of substantial growth over the next five years, the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Utah School of Medicine (www.genetics.utah.edu) seeks outstanding applicants for one or more tenure-track positions at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. We seek highly creative scientists who use genetics to investigate fundamental biological problems. We encourage applicants whose research focuses on human and medical genetics; evolutionary and functional genetics and genomics; computational genomics; genome technology development; and research programs using established or novel model organisms. As part of a vibrant community of faculty with a strong track record of collaborative mentorship, research, and funding, the Department of Human Genetics lies at the interface between basic and clinical sciences. This creates ample opportunities for interdisciplinary research (e.g., our Center for Genetic Discovery, Transformative Excellence Program in Evolutionary Genetics and Genomics, and Center for Genomic Medicine). As a department, we value diversity and equity, and believe that the best science is done when researchers of diverse backgrounds are integrated and supported in an inclusive manner. We seek faculty who share these values. Our institution is set in a unique geographical landscape that attracts a heterogeneous and productive scientific community. Successful candidates will receive a generous startup package and enjoy a stimulating research environment that places a strong emphasis on innovation and interaction.
The University of Utah Health (U of U Health) is a patient-focused center distinguished by collaboration, excellence, leadership, and respect. The U of U Health values candidates who are committed to fostering and furthering the culture of compassion, collaboration, innovation, accountability, diversity, integrity, quality, and trust that is integral to our mission.
