The Department of Orthopaedics at Emory University School of Medicine houses a vibrant and highly prolific research team within the basic, translational, and clinical musculoskeletal research community.
We are expanding our research program portfolio through targeted recruitments of two research faculty to complement our musculoskeletal research program at Emory School of Medicine. These faculty positions will be at the Assistant/Associate professor level on the tenure-eligible track.
Specific areas of focus for these positions include systems biology, developmental biology of the spine, and stem cell biology for soft tissue repair and regeneration.
Candidates for the Assistant Professor position(s) must have completed their doctorate degree and a highly productive post-doctoral fellowship. Junior candidates must demonstrate national prominence and scientific leadership in one or more of the above specific areas. Priority will be given to candidates with secured extramural funding.
Candidates for the Associate Professor level position should lead a robust extramurally funded program in one or more of the above focus areas. Successful candidates will be expected to sustain a highly prolific program in musculoskeletal research and interact with our collaborative team of researchers at Emory University.
Successful candidates will be provided generous start-up funds and laboratory space with a primary appointment in the Department of Orthopaedics and a secondary appointment in an appropriate basic science department within Emory School of Medicine. They will be encouraged to collaborate with our multidisciplinary community of musculoskeletal researchers and develop translational partnerships with clinician scientists in the Department of Orthopaedics.
Emory University provides state-of-the-art core facilities as well as established collaborative programs with Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Georgia and other partners and institutions.
Applications, including a cover letter, research statement, an up-to-date curriculum vitae, and complete information for three references should be submitted.
Additional questions should be emailed under the subject header “Ortho Faculty Search” to Ms. Glynnis Holt (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Positions will remain open until filled. Emory University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action and Veteran employer.

This racially diverse class is 59% women, and 68% of the class members are nontraditional, meaning that they were out of college for at least a year before entering medical school.... In 2016, the pass rate for first-time takers of step 1 of the National Board Exam (testing basic science knowledge and skills) was 97%. Medical school faculty received $348 million in sponsored research funding in fiscal year 2016, plus another $87.9 million in funds at other units in the health sciences center and at the Atlanta VA Medical Center. Ranked 18th nationally in NIH dollars received, the school is best known for its research and treatment in infectious disease, neurosciences, heart disease, cancer, transplantation, orthopaedics, pediatrics, renal disease, ophthalmology, and geriatrics.
