Less than 2
The Department of Molecular and Systems Biology at Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position. We seek applicants who will direct an independent and innovative research program to understand complex problems in molecular, cell, or developmental biology, regeneration, neuroscience, or mechanisms of disease using approaches in genetics, genomics, epigenetics, metabolomics, bioinformatics, or computational systems biology.
Dartmouth is highly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff and we seek applicants who are able to work effectively with individuals from all backgrounds, including but not limited to racial and ethnic minorities, women, those who identify with LGBTQ+ communities, persons with disabilities, are from lower income backgrounds, veterans, and first-generation college graduates.
Applicants should state in their cover letter how their research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth’s commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Our department offers a dynamic and interactive environment where faculty members benefit from collaborative and collegial interactions across campus, with foundational and clinical departments at Geisel, the School of Arts & Sciences, the Thayer School of Engineering, and the Guarini School of Graduate and Advanced Studies.
A generous start-up package and access to state-of-the-art research facilities will be provided. Individuals will be given opportunities for mentoring and teaching graduate students in relevant PhD programs [e.g., Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB), Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (QBS), and Integrative Neuroscience at Dartmouth (IND)]. The successful candidate may, as appropriate, also benefit from association with NIH-sponsored Centers for Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences, Biomolecular Targeting, Molecular Epidemiology or Cystic Fibrosis and the NCI-designated Dartmouth Cancer Center.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and relevant postdoctoral research experience. Applicants should upload a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a description of proposed research (<3 pages) and a statement on how their teaching, research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion at Dartmouth (<1 page) to http://apply.interfolio.com/112307.
Letters of recommendation should be provided from three referees.
In addition, applicants should submit a fully anonymized description of their three most significant contributions to science (<1 page) and take care not to include details such as publications, impact factors, mentors' names, institutions, awards, or any other information that may reveal their identity. The goal of this anonymous narrative is to minimize bias by allowing the search committee an initial level of evaluation focused solely on research.
The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth is located on neighboring campuses in Hanover and Lebanon New Hampshire, surrounded by a vibrant, academic, and professional community offering excellent schools, lively arts, and an outstanding quality of life. Boston MA, Burlington VT, and Montreal, QC are all within a few hours’ drive.
Dartmouth College is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer with a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Dartmouth has been educating leaders since 1769. Our undergraduate and graduate programs are marked by personal attention from top faculty and opportunities to participate in multidisciplinary research in an inclusive community.
The Department of Molecular and Systems Biology (MSB) at The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth was formed in 2016 to unite faculty with diverse scientific interests and technical expertise who are answering complex questions in biology and medicine through systems level, state-of-the-art experimental and computational approaches. With strengths in cancer biology, proteomics, neuroscience, developmental biology, genomics and genetics, department labs span the breadth of cutting-edge research – from mechanisms underlying gene regulation and signaling pathways in developing organisms and circadian systems, to optogenetic control and live imaging of neural circuits, to insights into disease processes and innovative therapies to combat them. Taking advantage of the powerful tools afforded by molecular biology, our goal is to integrate recent discoveries, comprehensive data sets and modeling to gain a holistic understanding of biological processes and t...heir relevance to human health.
Our department fosters an environment of collaborative and cross-disciplinary research and is committed to the excellence and advancement of its graduate student and post-doctoral trainees. MSB faculty support a diverse and inclusive research community within the department and more broadly at Dartmouth, in accordance with the Geisel School of Medicine’s mission. Through the MSB Enriching our Environment committee, we seek to promote open dialogue and the respectful exchange of ideas among all our faculty, staff and trainees.
