Postdoctoral Leadership Program – UT Health San Antonio
The University of Texas Health San Antonio (UT Health) is a leading academic health center in the United States with a mission to make lives better through excellence in academics, clinical care, community service, and biomedical research. The Biochemistry and Structural Biology Department at the UT Health is in an exciting growth phase with numerous new labs and recruitment ongoing at all levels. The department has world-leading groups in cancer biology, DNA repair, ubiquitin signaling, enzymology, aging, metabolism, structural biology, and drug discovery. Groups are supported by multiple sources of funding including the NIH (multiple institutes), HHMI, the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), and many others.
We are inviting talented PhD students (including recent graduates) to apply to our new Postdoctoral Leadership Program, where selected trainees will lead multidisciplinary research projects under the guidance of a faculty mentor (or mentorship team), and, importantly, will also receive dedicated training in leadership, mentorship, and communication. Trainees will also benefit from a highly collaborative research environment with multiple state-of-the-art core facilities and opportunities for cross/multi-disciplinary collaboration. Successful training outcomes are anticipated to be leadership positions in academia, industry, and government.
Minimal requirements are a PhD, MD, or MD/PhD degree and an impactful first-author publication in a relevant biomedical research area. Salaries are nationally competitive and augmented by a moving allowance and a comprehensive benefits package.
To be considered for this unique program, please email a cover letter, a CV or resume, and a list of at least 3 references to Dr. Reuben Harris and Dr. Patrick Sung (executive contact Ms. Lily Leader – Leader@uthscsa.edu). Selected candidates will be invited to present their research at a symposium in Summer/Fall 2023 with positions anticipated to start shortly thereafter.
