  • Employment Opportunities

      FACULTY

    Applications are invited for tenure track faculty positions with state salary support in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Applicants will be considered for ranks of assistant, associate, or full Professor and must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree with appropriate postdoctoral research experience. Successful candidates will have significant extramural research funding and demonstrated scholarly productivity. We are seeking individuals who have research interests that complement existing areas of excellence in cardiovascular, renal, and neuroendocrine physiology, and the pathophysiology of obesity, metabolic, cardiovascular and kidney diseases. Successful candidates will devote at least 90% effort to their research program. The large group of researchers in the department offers excellent opportunities for collaboration at molecular, cellular, or systems levels of integration. The department offers generous laboratory space and excellent core facilities in the new state-of-the-art Arthur C. Guyton Research Center. Faculty members receive highly competitive salaries and excellent start-up packages. Additional information about the department and its faculty can be found at the web site: http://physiology.umc.edu/. Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, including current extramural research funding to: Dr. John E. Hall, Department of Physiology and Biophysics, University of Mississippi Medical Center, 2500 North State Street, Jackson, MS  39216-4505. E-mail: jehall@umc.edu. All applications will be treated confidentially. Equal opportunity employer, M/F/D/V

      POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW

    Applications are invited for post-doctoral positions in the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Fellows will receive training in a wide array of genetic, molecular, biochemical and integrative physiological methods to investigate central nervous system control of cardiovascular function and metabolic functions. Current areas of research emphasis include: 1) mechanisms of obesity-induced hypertension; 2) CNS signaling pathways that differentially control appetite, glucose homeostasis, thermogenesis and sympathetic nervous system activity; and 3) molecular mechanisms of "lipotoxic" cardiovascular and renal injury. Studies are conducted in genetically engineered rodent models as well as in large animal models. Candidates must have a PhD, MD or comparable degree with an interest in cellular/molecular research as well as integrative physiology. Previous experience and training with the use of rodent models, assessment of cardiac function, histology, immunohistochemistry and/or neurosciences will be an asset. Our laboratories are housed in the new state-of-the-art Arthur C. Guyton Research Complex with excellent core facilities. Salaries are competitive, and there is an opportunity to advance to a faculty position. Applicants should send curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests and career goals, and the names of three references to: Dr. John E. Hall, Department of Physiology and Biophysics, University of Mississippi Medical Center, 2500 North State Street, Jackson, MS  39216-4505. E-mail: jehall@umc.edu. All applications will be treated confidentially. Equal opportunity employer, M/F/D/V.
