The Department of Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics at the University of Virginia invites applications for a tenured/tenure-track faculty position in cryo electron tomography.

The University will also invest in a new cryo focused ion beam scanning electron microscope and supporting technologies in conjunction with this position.

Applicants will be considered for either an Assistant or Associate Professor rank. Tenure status and rank of the position depends on qualifications. Highly competitive start-up packages will be offered.

Successful applicants will have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree, will be highly creative, and must have demonstrated exceptional scholarly success in their field. Demonstration of sustained grant or equivalent support is required for appointments at a mid-career or senior rank.
