Stem Cell Biologist with M.D., Ph.D., or M.D./Ph.D.
The Charles C. Gates Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Biology Program, the Neurotransplantation Program for Parkinson's Disease, and the Division of Clinical Pharmacology at the University of Colorado Denver seek a stem cell biologist with M.D., Ph.D., or M.D./Ph.D. degrees and appropriate background for a tenure-eligible position at an open rank. Some preference will be given to those with physician training. Applicants should have a strong record of research for their career stage. Successful candidates will be expected to develop an independent research program using stem cells to pursue the cause and treatment of Parkinson's disease. As faculty, they will be expected to participate in teaching of graduate and medical students.
The University of Colorado has a long record of innovative research in Parkinson's disease including the first transplant of human fetal dopamine cells in the United States in 1988. There are 12 faculty whose research interests focus on Parkinson's disease. They represent clinical and basic research departments in the School of Medicine, the School of Pharmacy, the Neuroscience Program, and the Stem Cell Biology Program. The Charles C. Gates Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Biology Program at the University of Colorado Denver is headed by Dennis Roop, Ph.D. Its goals are to foster stem cell research across disciplines, providing resources and core facilities to make collaborative research successful.
Candidates should send curriculum vitae, a one page summary of research goals, and the names and contact information for three references to: Curt R. Freed, M.D., Director, Neurotransplantation Program for Parkinson's Disease and Head, Division of Clinical Pharmacology, University of Colorado Denver, Box C237, 4200 E. Ninth Ave., Denver, CO 80262. Email Curt.Freed@ucdenver.edu
The University of Colorado is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
