The Ohio Musculoskeletal & Neurological Institute (OMNI) at Ohio University (https://www.ohio.edu/medicine/omni/) is seeking applications for four full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor (i.e., open rank). Primary faculty appointments will be in the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine or the Division of Physical Therapy. OMNI is undergoing a targeted expansion to complement and expand the research activities of our scientists by hiring up to four additional research-intensive faculty members on the Athens, Ohio campus (Ohio University's Main Campus). OMNI's overarching mission is to improve the treatment, prevention and diagnosis of musculoskeletal and neurological disorders. OMNI has strong programmatic efforts across several research programs with foci in: 1) musculoskeletal pain and injury (primary focus on rehabilitation), and 2) healthy aging (primary focus on frailty and fractures). The research across these programs has an overarching aim of developing interventions and diagnostics that remove barriers to independent physical mobility and ultimately reduce disability. Preference will be given to individuals whose research will strengthen these research foci. However, we also welcome applications from established scientists whose work would be complimentary to the institute and could be leveraged to develop a new area of focus (e.g., skeletal health). OMNI scientists (https://www.ohio.edu/medicine/omni) have expertise in orthopedics, bone biology, neuroscience, motor function, skeletal muscle biology, exercise physiology, rehabilitation, engineering, biomechanics, epidemiology and health psychology. OMNI currently features numerous federally-funded Principal Investigators, Junior Scholars, and Affiliated Scientists and welcomes additional members that will establish and maintain an extramurally-funded research program that produces innovative, high impact scholarly activity. The successful candidate will enjoy protected time for research, with rich opportunities for participation in medical and graduate education programs. We welcome applications from early career and senior scientists. Salary is commensurate with experience and accompanied by an excellent benefits and start-up package. There are leadership opportunities available for senior-level applicants that are interested in such appointments.
