Job Description


The Department of Medicine’s Center for Bioenergetics is looking to hire a motivated research scientist to support research in metabolism and mitochondrial function in various disease conditions. The research scientist will be responsible for training junior post-docs and research technicians, coordinating the daily research activities for the lab, designing and performing experiments and participating in scientific writing. Experience in mitochondrial research is preferred but not required. Independence in experimental design and execution is required. The Research Scientist is primarily engaged in research or research-related services to the institution that are primarily supportive in nature. This includes scientists who are not on an independent path in terms of external grant funding and publications, and individuals whose job is to serve and support TMHRI. The expectation for faculty on the Research Track is that full salary support must be maintained by the supervising faculty member(s). This salary support can be constituted from extramural funding, philanthropic funding, start up support, or any combination thereof.
