based on the presence of allopathic (M.D.), osteopathic (D.O.), and veterinary
(D.V.M.) medical colleges as well as an outstanding College of Natural Science.
The Department of Physiology has affiliations with each of these colleges,
providing faculty and support for integrative and translational research in
physiology and disease pathogenesis and teaching within undergraduate,
graduate, and medical programs. These features provide excellent opportunities
for expanded resources and cross-college program building. The ideal candidate
will possess foresight and leadership skills to coalesce these opportunities into a
new vision for the department and effectively implement this vision through
recruitment of new faculty who will enhance interdisciplinary research within the
department and across the university in alignment with the University (MSU 2030)

relationships, promote teamwork, and facilitate collaboration across multiple
colleges and physically distinct campuses. The successful candidate will have an
internationally recognized research program that has been consistently funded
extramurally. All areas of physiology-related research will be considered but
particular interest will be given to candidates whose research supports and
complements existing research strengths in cancer biology, immunology,
metabolic diseases, neuroscience, and discipline-based education research.
Applicants should hold an advanced degree (Ph.D. or equivalent) in physiology
or a related field and the academic credentials of the individual must be consistent
with a tenured professor appointment at Michigan State University. The
successful candidate will have a commitment to excellence, DEI, and supporting
a positive climate as well as previous administrative experience relevant to the
research, teaching, and service activities of an academic department. This
experience would include personnel and budget management, research program
building, and mentorship of faculty and students.
The Department of Physiology is housed in the Biomedical and Physical Sciences
(BPS) building with 50,000 sq. feet of modern laboratory and office space with an
additional 14,000 sq. feet of research space in the recently constructed
Interdisciplinary Sciences and Technology Building. Extensive departmental
collaborations exist across the MSU campuses. Departmental research is
enhanced through access to university-supported bioinformatics, genomics,
imaging, proteomics, and animal core facilities.
