Welcome and thank you for your interest in a career with ICCM at Kansas State University
Assistant or Associate Professor
Faculty Cluster Hire – Institute of Computational Comparative Medicine, Nanotechnology Innovation Center of Kansas State
Kansas State University (KSU) announces the availability of seven tenure-track assistant/associate professor positions in comparative pharmacometrics, biomathematics/biostatistics, cell biology and nanomedicine /nanobiology to work in two newly established research centers on KSU’s Manhattan campus; the Institute of Computational Comparative Medicine (ICCM) and the Nanotechnology Innovation Center of Kansas State (NICKS). The ICCM and NICKS occupy a newly constructed state-of-the-art research laboratory complex in the College of Veterinary Medicine.
Research in the ICCM is interdisciplinary and focused on developing novel approaches to extrapolate drug, chemical and/or nanomaterial behavior from in vitro to in vivo systems and across species, with particular emphasis on domestic animals. Collaboration would also be possible with the co-located USDA supported Food Animal Residue Avoidance and Depletion (FARAD) program and NICKS. The incumbents to these positions would develop and apply modern computational and pharmacokinetic/ pharmacodynamic modeling solutions to problems in comparative pharmacology, chemical food safety, antimicrobial chemotherapy and/or nanomaterial toxicology and biodistribution. For more information visit the ICCM website at www.k-state.edu/iccm
Research at NICKS will be interdisciplinary and focused on developing novel approaches to develop sustainable nanotherapeutics and utilize nanotechnology in the treatment of infectious disease, cancer chemotherapeutic drug delivery, and assess the toxicity of nanomaterials. The incumbents to these positions would be expected to develop an innovative research program taking advantage of the unique environment of Kansas State University relative to infectious disease, sustainable nanomaterial development based on natural agricultural substrates, the comparative medicine presence in the surrounding animal health corridor and the ICCM. For more information visit the NICKS website at www.nicks.ksu.edu
For all hires, collaboration is strongly encouraged with the substantial infectious disease research base developing at KSU as a result of the relocation of the new National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF) being built on KSU’s Manhattan campus.
The incumbents to this hire would be expected to develop individual and collaborative extramurally funded research programs, develop appropriate graduate training experiences in their respected research fields, and contribute to new graduate courses in his/her area of expertise. For all positions, the incumbents should possess a PhD and/or DVM / MD in a relevant science discipline and preferably have post-doctoral research experience and publications in a supportive discipline. Tenure home consideration will be given in the following departments: Anatomy and Physiology, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, Chemistry, Biology, Chemical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Diagnostic Medicine and Pathobiology.
Interested candidates should submit a letter of application describing their interest in the positions, curriculum vitae, along with the names, addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of at least three (3) references. All files should be in portable document (.pdf) or Word (.doc or .docx) format. Please submit files to ICCM/NICKS Faculty Search Committee, Attn: Erin Moore, Public Service Administrator, Department of Anatomy and Physiology, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications will begin January 6, 2014 and continue until the positions are filled. Kansas State University is an EOE/AA employer. Background check is required.
