The Brown Department of Orthopaedics is soliciting applications to fill a faculty position in musculoskeletal research, with appointment at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. The successful candidate will join an established, productive, and well-funded research group located on the campus of Rhode Island Hospital, which is the primary teaching affiliate of the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. This is a non-targeted recruitment. We are interested in outstanding candidates who can enhance or expand the scope of our current research program, which includes laboratories specializing in bioengineering, molecular biology, nanomedicine, skeletal stem cell biology and cell signaling, cancer biology, cartilage, osteoarthritis, spine, and implant infection and diagnostics.
Research faculty in the Department are expected to establish and maintain nationally recognized independent research programs, as evidenced by consistent NIH or similar funding and publication in high-impact journals. It is expected that approximately 85% of the incumbent's time will be devoted to research, with the remainder split between administration and teaching. Laboratory and office space will be provided. Faculty are encouraged to collaborate with clinicians and scientists in the department, as well as with investigators in allied departments at Brown University and the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The incumbent will also be expected to participate on a national level in cooperative group research and planning. The incumbent will serve as a liaison between the Department of Orthopaedics at Rhode Island Hospital and the various related programs at Brown University.
The incumbent will be expected to serve as a mentor to undergraduate, medical and graduate students from Brown University and participate in the teaching programs in the Department of Orthopaedics at Rhode Island Hospital, which includes medical students, residents, and fellows. Teaching of courses at Brown is not required but may be elected as time permits. The incumbent will also be expected to actively participate in all activities including administrative and teaching responsibilities of the Department of Orthopaedics, and The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
Competitive candidates will have an earned doctorate in cell and/or molecular biology, bioengineering, or similarly applicable discipline (i.e. PhD, MD, DVM) and, ideally, will have completed a post-doctoral fellowship in musculoskeletal research. Preference will be given to applicants who have established an NIH or similarly-funded research program, though applicants who can demonstrate the likelihood of funding will also be considered.
