THE DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY AND BIOCHEMISTRY within the Division of Physical Sciences at UC San Diego (http://www-chem.ucsd.edu) is playing a key role in a UCSD campus-wide effort to build the preeminent program in quantitative biosciences (q-Bio) research and teaching. To anchor this effort, the department invites applications for a tenured Full Professorship in Physical Chemistry, with a preferred focus on theoretical molecular biophysics. The successful candidate will hold the Francis Crick Endowed Chair, and will help to steer future development of the q-Bio initiative. This will include collaborations with other departments including Mathematics and Physics, and such UCSD organizations as the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the Center for Theoretical Biological Physics. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in one of the quantitative physical sciences and a recognized program of excellence in both teaching and research in theoretical molecular biophysics. The University is committed to an excellent and diverse faculty and student body. A successful candidate will be judged on teaching and research accomplishments as well as on a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in higher education.
