The successful candidates will join a vibrant, collegial, and multidisciplinary basic research department with extensive scientific connectivity with the Winship Cancer Institute, the Goizueta Institute @Emory Brain Health, and the Department of Chemistry at the Emory College, and other basic and clinical departments across the School of Medicine. New faculty will have immediate access to powerful research infrastructures and core facilities, including the well-recognized Emory Chemical Biology Discovery Center with state-of-the-art high-throughput screening capabilities, as well as a top-ranked graduate training program in pharmacology. The Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology at Emory is experiencing another phase of growth with the strong commitment of the leadership of the Woodruff Health Science Center and the School of Medicine, who share a focused vision for chemistry-enabled discovery, therapeutic innovation, and translational biology.
