Mercer University School of Medicine seeks applicants for a full-time tenure-track faculty with expertise in epigenetics. We are particularly interested and encourage applications from investigators with interests in applying epigenetic approaches to cancer and/or populations who are disproportionately at risk for health disparities, although all areas of epigenetics will be considered. The successful applicant will have experience in the field of epigenetics and the relationship between the epigenome and phenotype utilizing either genomic, bioinformatic, genetic epidemiological, and/or systems approaches. The candidate is expected to develop an independent, externally funded research program and to interact collaboratively with basic scientists and clinical faculty located on the Macon, Savannah, Columbus, and Atlanta campuses, as well as training initiatives involving undergraduate, graduate, and medical students. Successful applicants will participate in MUSM's interdisciplinary patient-based learning curriculum for medical students. Rank will be determined based on the credentials of the selected candidate. Applications for consideration at the Associate Professor level must have a demonstrated track record of scholarly research including extramural, peer-reviewed funding and excellence in teaching. The Mercer University School of Medicine has facilities for electron and confocal microscopy, well equipped molecular and cell culture labs, fluorescence-activated cell sorting facility, and animal husbandry available to all investigators.
