Assistant Professor, RNA-Department of Chemistry/Institute for Applied Life Sciences

The Department of Chemistry at the University of Massachusetts (http://www.umass.edu/chemistry) and the Center for Bioactive Delivery at the Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS, https://www.umass.edu/cbd/) are embarking on a strategic hiring program enabled by the creation of this Institute. Applications are invited for a full-time, tenure track faculty position in the Chemistry Department at the Assistant Professor level to begin September 2018 or thereafter. We seek applicants who will develop or continue a vigorous research program in the use of or delivery of biomolecules, particularly RNA and proteins for the development of therapeutic candidates to treat diseases or disorders. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, siRNA/miRNA methodologies or delivery technologies, mRNA-based therapies, RNA/protein design, selection or engineering, and novel genome editing technologies.

Assistant Professor, Neuroscience-Department of Biology/Institute for Applied Life Sciences

The Department of Biology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor. The successful candidate will be a part of the Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS), which has a primary goal of developing translational research programs and fostering interactions with industry. We seek highly innovative candidates who are exploring neurological/psychiatric diseases or disorders using clinically relevant animal models, spanning invertebrates to non-human primates. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research focus complements existing departmental and campus strengths, including neuroendocrinology, cytoskeletal dynamics, protein homeostasis, immunology and neurodevelopment. Possible areas of research could include neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, traumatic brain injury, autism or neuropsychiatric disorders. Successful recruits will be expected to establish and maintain a research program with direct relevance to issues of human health and that yield important mechanistic insight into diseases affecting the nervous system.
