The Department of Cell & Developmental Biology in the School of Biological Sciences is conducting an open search for Project Scientists (non-tenured, Assistant, Associate or Full level). At UC San Diego, Project Scientists are academic researchers who are expected to make significant and creative contributions to a research team but are not necessarily leaders of the research team. They are not required to carry out independent research or develop an independent research reputation but will publish and carry out research or creative programs with supervision by a member of the Professor or Professional Research series. University and public service are encouraged but not required and they do not have formal teaching responsibilities. Appointments and duration vary depending on the length of the research project and availability of funding. Research topics address studying the mechanisms by which cells assemble and function, and how these cells are sculpted into multicellular organisms. These include but are not limited to: mechanisms of protein degradation, nucleocytoplasmic transport, and cell migration, gene expression, mechanisms that guide the morphogenesis of tissues, organs and organisms, stem cells in development and regeneration, and the ability of cells and tissues to repair themselves. Models range from yeast to mammals.
The School of Biological Sciences at UCSD is a vibrant center of scientific discovery, innovation, and collaboration. Our large research base spans many areas of biology. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.
All candidates must have earned a Ph.D. in Cell & Developmental Biology or related field. Have a commitment to mentoring and research training service to build equitable and diverse scholarly environment. A minimum of 4 years of postdoctoral experience in one or more of the following areas: cells assembly and function, multicellular organism development, protein degradation, nucleocytoplasmic transport, cell migration, gene expression, cell morphogenesis, or stem cell development and regeneration.
A reasonable salary range estimate for this position is $68,400-$181,900.
