The Department of Applied Physical Sciences (APS) invites applications for
three tenure-track or tenured faculty positions. The goal of APS is to bridge
fundamental research and training in the science and engineering of materials with
translational impact on society’s most challenging problems. APS partners with
all STEM and Health Affairs departments toward multidisciplinary, team-based
research, education, and entrepreneurship in a top 10 public research university.
This hiring initiative continues an aggressive strategy to build a pre-eminent
Department of Applied Physical Sciences, aiming for 20 new hires together
with joint appointments from partnering departments. These new positions are
intended to build upon existing strengths and aim for international prominence
and leadership in the science and engineering of materials at the intersection of
the physical, life, and energy sciences.
All candidates should have clear potential, and commitment for research
excellence, multidisciplinary collaboration, extramural funding from
government, industry, or other sources, and translational impact in education and
entrepreneurship. Excellence and commitment to education and mentorship at the
graduate and undergraduate levels are essential qualities for these recruitments.
The Department and University are broadly committed to equity and inclusion.
It is part of our institutional mission to teach and engage a diverse community of
undergraduate and graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars. We especially
welcome applications from candidates who are committed to advancing these
ideals. A PhD in a STEM Meld (science, technology, engineering or math) or
related Melds that contribute to applied physical sciences, is required.
Applications will only be accepted online ( http://unc.peopleadmin.com/
postings/128403). Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a research
statement, a statement on teaching and mentorship, and 1-2 representative
publications (optional). Applicants are required to identify the names, titles,
email addresses and phone numbers of four professional references when
applying. Reference providers identiMed by the applicant will be contacted via
email with instructions for uploading their letters of support. Review of fully
completed applications will begin October 30, 2017. Positions are open until
Mlled. Questions should be directed to: Chair, Applied Physical Sciences Search

Faculty Position in Gene Regulation, Genomics, and Reproduction
The Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences, an endowed basic science research
center within the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, is
recruiting to fll a newly created Tenure-track Assistant Professor Position. We invite applications from outstanding
candidates studying aspects of signaling, gene regulation, and genome function, especially in the areas of chromatin
and transcription, epigenetics, nuclear endpoints of cellular signaling pathways, nuclear receptors, RNA biology,
genome organization, and genome evolution. We are interested in a wide variety of model systems and experimental
approaches, including biochemistry, molecular biology, structural biology, animal models, genetics, genomics,
proteomics, bioinformatics, and computational biology. The Green Center’s research programs focus on, but are not
limited to, reproduction and development in a broad sense, as well as aspects of endocrinology, stem cells, cancer,
metabolism, infammation, immunity, and neurobiology.
For this search, we are particularly interested in recruiting a candidate who represents one or more of these areas
• Signaling, chromatin, and gene regulation, using a wide array of experimental approaches to address fundamental
questions in nuclear signaling, chromatin, transcription, epigenetics, and RNA biology.
• Molecular biology of female reproductive systems, from stems cells, oogenesis, and fertilization, to implantation,
placental function, pregnancy, and parturition, using cell-based or physiological models in combination with
molecular or genomic approaches.
• Genomic, proteomic, bioinformatic, computational, and evolutionary approaches to understanding gene
regulation, using state-of-the-art genomic, proteomic and computational tools.
The Green Center promotes and supports cutting-edge, integrative, and collaborative basic research in reproduction,
development, and related areas of biology, as well as strong connections between basic and clinical research. This
recruitment is part of a major university and department-supported renovation and rejuvenation of The Green Center
over the past 6 years. Successful candidates will be housed in a newly renovated state-of-the-art research facility
and provided a generous start-up package, and are expected to establish scientifcally rigorous and externally funded
research programs and participate in center, department, anduniversityteachingandtrainingprograms.To learn more about The Green Center, visit: http://www.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. or equivalent in a relevant feld of study, postdoctoral or comparable experience, and a demonstrated record of research
excellence. Applicants should send a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and a statement of planned research projects as pdf fles to GreenCenter@
UTSouthwestern.edu. Please indicate one of the three research areas listed above (Molecular biology of female reproduction; Gene regulation; Genomics) in the
subject line of the email. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent directly to the above e-mail address. Review of applications will
begin on October 30, 2017, and will continue during the 2017–2018 academic year or until the position is flled, although applicants are encouraged to submit
their materials as soon as possible.
