Description

An Assistant Research Professor (non-tenure track) position is available immediately at The Pennsylvania State University. The successful candidate will perform research with the Patterson lab (https://sites.psu.edu/adpatterson/) in The Center for Molecular Toxicology and Carcinogenesis (https://www.cmtc.psu.edu/) and lead research on several projects related to host-gut microbiome interactions and metabolism. The successful candidate will develop independent research and contribute to studies of the microbiome as well as actively participate in the metabolomics facility. Candidates are required to have a Ph.D. in a relevant field (such as biology, biochemistry, chemistry, physiology or closely related field), at least 3 years of post-doctoral research experience, a strong interest in metabolism, and a history of productivity. Familiarity with metabolism, metabolomics, and microbiome is preferred, though the successful candidate will have opportunities for training. Experience working with large collaborative groups is an advantage. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire, with excellent possibility of re-funding. Applicants should submit a cover letter describing their research experience and how these experiences relate to the position, a CV, and contact information for three references. For informal inquiries, please email Andrew Patterson (adp117@psu.edu). Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
