Heritage Professor of Diabetes Research and Assistant/Associate Professors
Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine
The Diabetes Institute (DI) at Ohio University is undergoing a targeted expansion involving initiatives totaling more than $64 million over the next decade. This effort is supported by the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation's historic $105 million gift to the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (OU-HCOM). Included in this expansion are a state-of-the-art 20,000 square foot diabetes clinical care and research building and the hiring of additional research faculty members to complement and expand the research activities of DI scientists and clinicians. These new faculty members will be appointed within the Department of Biomedical Sciences in OU-HCOM, although appointment to other departments is possible. This posting advertises up to three tenured or tenured-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor. Importantly, outstanding applicants will be considered for appointment as the Heritage Professor of Diabetes Research, a tenured position which provides an enhanced start-up package as well as the option of selecting highly qualified scientists to fill any of the two Assistant/Associate Professor positions as a part of a cluster hire. The primary responsibility of the successful candidates will be to establish and maintain an externally funded diabetes-focused research program. Participation in medical and graduate education and training is also encouraged, as is interdisciplinary collaboration with faculty from across Ohio University. A doctoral or medical degree (e.g., Ph.D., D.O., or M.D.) is required. Salary will be commensurate with experience and accompanied by an excellent benefits and start-up package.
The positions will be open until filled. For full consideration, please apply by May 15, 2013. To ensure confidentiality, please submit curriculum vitae along with a short letter of intent to the search firm, Harris Search Associates, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Confidentiality will be maintained for all inquiries and applications.
