The Department of Molecular Biomedical Sciences at NC State is inviting applications for a state-funded, twelve month, tenure-track position at the ASSISTANT PROFESSOR level in the broad area of drug delivery. This position is part of a broader five faculty cluster recruitment effort in building a Center for Translational Predictive Biology. The five incoming faculty are expected to synergize with existing faculty and develop an internationally-recognized center focused on integrated systems and analytical methods that can predict in vivo responses from in vitro systems. Center focus areas of interest include mathematical modeling/machine learning, organoid biology, microphysiological systems (organ-on-chip), drug delivery, and whole animal physiology.

For this faculty position, areas of interest include, but are not limited to, predictive models for drug delivery, delivery of large biological therapeutics (proteins and nucleic acids), addressing key challenges in delivery of drugs such as the blood-brain barrier, bioavailability, local targeting, and/or the use of organoid and microphysiological models to understand or improve delivery of therapeutic agents. Applicants should have a strong background in chemistry, pharmaceutics, biomedical engineering or a closely related discipline and should be interested in contributing their expertise to the predictive biology center and the community of researchers and veterinarians at the CVM. Applicants should have a track record of collaborative and interdisciplinary research, and an interest in working with multiple animal models (rodents, large animals,, humans).

The new faculty member will be expected to establish a successful interdisciplinary research program, and actively participate in the veterinary and graduate teaching programs.  This position will have the opportunity to complement, and collaborate with, other members of the Translational Predictive Biology Cluster. The successful applicant will also have the opportunity to interact with clinical faculty in a state-of-the-art veterinary hospital, clinical pharmacologists in the college, and outstanding research faculty affiliated with the College of Veterinary Medicine, the Comparative Medicine Institute (CMI), and relevant existing faculty clusters working in related areas such as Modeling the Living Embryo (MLE), High-dimensional Integration of Biological Systems (HIBS) and Synthetic and Systems Biology (SSB). The specific teaching requirements will be tailored to the expertise of the individual and the needs of the college.
