The Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine
has an open position for a tenure-track regular faculty position at the level of Assistant or Associate
Professor. We seek outstanding individuals with research focused on mechanistic investigations
that employ quantitative approaches (biophysical, electrophysiological, structural, imaging, and/or
cell-biological) to understand fundamental processes in molecular or cellular physiology. We
particularly encourage candidates whose questions and approaches complement and/or extend the
Department’s existing research strengths in ion channels, molecular biophysics, membrane protein
physiology, neuroscience, sensory systems, and cardiovascular and muscle research
(www.medschool.ucdenver.edu/physiology). Successful applicants are expected to lead a vigorous,
externally funded research program and to participate in professional and graduate teaching.
Appointees will join a vibrant and growing Department under the new leadership of Dr. David
DiGregorio – hired as Chair in January 2023 – with a commitment to mentoring faculty and trainees
from diverse backgrounds. Research interests in the Department currently include cardiac and
skeletal muscle physiology, ion channel biophysics, molecular physiology, cell signaling, sensory
and motor systems, and synaptic function. Extra-departmental interactions within molecular
biophysics, neuroscience and physiology, including basic science and translational collaborations,
are facilitated by several NIH-supported interdepartmental graduate programs and centers (e.g.,
Neuroscience Program, Pharmacology program, Structural Biology and Biochemistry program).
Other shared resources include cores for biophysics and molecular interactions, molecular
structure, electron microscopy, proteomics, and transgenic rodents.
