    The Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at ECU invites applicants for a full-time (12-month) tenure-track or fixed-term faculty position in Pharmacology or Toxicology at the Assistant Professor level or higher, commensurate with qualifications and experience. The selected faculty is expected to be highly research-active, serve as a catalyst for new research projects to strengthen current areas of pharmacology and/or toxicology, and to expand the existing technological and molecular biological base of the department. Researchers with expertise in integrative and molecular pharmacology or toxicology are especially encouraged to apply. State salary support, assigned lab space, and a competitive start-up package will be provided.

    Individuals conducting state-of-the-art research in any area of the pharmacological or toxicological sciences will be considered. Successful candidates are expected to establish/maintain independent, extramurally supported research programs, and build a strong record of scholarship through peer-reviewed publications. Opportunities are available and encouraged for interdisciplinary research interactions within the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology as well as with other departments and centers at the Brody School of Medicine and at East Carolina University.

The graduate program through the Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences, Pharmacology and Toxicology Concentration, is broadly based to prepare students for careers in academics, research, government, industry, and medicine.

    State-of-the-art facilities support research across pharmacology and toxicology domains, with strengths in cardiovascular, neuro-, and cancer pharmacology and developmental and neurotoxicology. Faculty have multiple collaborations with scientists across the university and with academic, government, and industrial scientists outside the university. The Department has a strong commitment to inter-disciplinary research and has maintained a strong record of extramural funding from myriad sources. In addition to their teaching duties, each of the faculty has a research laboratory and performs research in his/her area of expertise.
