MSU Global Impact Initiative Logo

As part of the Global Impact Initiative, Michigan State University and the College of Human Medicine are making a significant investment to advance Women’s and Infant Health Precision Medicine. MSU has a growing cohort of well-funded, highly interactive faculty involved in Women’s Health Research and Reproductive and Developmental Biology on both the East Lansing and Grand Rapids campuses. The successful candidates will strengthen and complement these already established programs. We currently seek up to four candidates with active extramurally funded clinical and translational research programs for tenure-track positions at the Associate and Full Professor levels. Candidates with expertise ranging from molecular and cellular assessment of placental & fetal function, maternal and infant health, or outcomes research related to pregnancy and early development, or long-term implication(s) of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) are encouraged to apply. We are also seeking candidates that would enhance the programmatic initiatives by developing innovative knowledge networks through “big data” analysis that would unify this initiative. Candidates must possess an MD and/or PhD degree. Joint appointments with our clinical partners are possible for those with clinical duties.

Applicants must have a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD with a strong record of research accomplishments and peer-reviewed publications. Successful candidates will be expected to maintain a vigorous, nationally recognized basic, translational or clinical research program, to participate in the dynamic programs in women’s health research and reproductive and developmental biology and to contribute to professional, graduate, and/or undergraduate education. Appointments could be on either the East Lansing or Grand Rapids campus, depending on research interests and expertise. Generous start-up funds will be provided and salary is negotiable.

To apply, applicants should submit curriculum vitae, summary of research accomplishments and future research objectives, brief description of teaching philosophy and goals, and a list of three references, who will not be contacted without applicant’s consent, as a single PDF document to womeninfanthealthsearch@msu.edu. Candidates must also submit an application for this position through the MSU Human Resources site (posting #2450). The review of applications will begin March 1, 2016 but applications will be accepted and given full consideration until suitable candidates are found. For questions about the positions, please contact, Drs. Asgi Fazleabas and Richard Leach. For questions about the application process, please email or call Ms. Amanda Sterling 616-234-0983.
