Molecular Biology and Biochemistry focuses on the molecular basis of biological processes; i.e., on mechanisms by which cells process, integrate and act on information to constitute living organisms. We utilize technologies in molecular genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, biophysics, genomics, and bioinformatics to investigate the Central Dogma of living systems—the replication of biological information, the regulation of gene expression, and the mechanisms of protein function. Our program is inherently multi-disciplinary, as evidenced by strong research and curricular connections with biology, chemistry, physics and computer science, and promises a strong academic foundation for students who will address diverse challenges in their future careers.
Visiting Position Open
The Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry invites applications for faculty visitors to teach courses in biochemistry in the 2015/2016 academic year. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in the relevant discipline, and preference will be given to applicants with postdoctoral and/or prior teaching experience.
