The Hormel Institute, a biomedical research center of the University of Minnesota, was established in 1942 and has a long reputation in producing world class medical research. The Institute’s research success has resulted in a major expansion of its research facilities and includes a new state of the art laboratory building and complete renovation of existing research facilities. The Hormel Institute offers its research scientists complete access to state of the art equipment that includes a FACS cell sorter, confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, protein crystallography robotics and defraction system, nano-HPLC-AB SCIEX triple TOF 5600 mass spectrometry, and a Blue Gene/L and 3 racks of Linux GPU supercomputers for computational biology. In conjunction with the building expansion will be the addition of three (3) new faculty positions. We are seeking applications for faculty appointments at the levels of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor, and/or Endowed Professor.
