Faculty Positions in Microbial Pathogenesis

Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

We are seeking outstanding candidates for multiple TENURE-TRACK faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Molecular Microbiology at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine. Ideal applicants will be creative scientists pursuing fundamental aspects of viral pathogenesis using innovative combinations of genomics, genetics, cell biology, structural biology, computational biology, biophysics and biochemistry.  We especially encourage applicants with bold new perspectives and ‘outside the box’ approaches. We welcome applications from members of groups that are typically under-represented in science. Washington University offers an intellectually exciting, collegial, and supportive environment with robust graduate and post-doctoral programs and extensive opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration. Resources include outstanding core facilities for genomics, small-molecule screening, imaging, Cryo-EM, and high performance cluster computing, and BSL3 space including animal facilities.  Additional information can be found at www.microbiology.wustl.edu. Applicants should be committed to teaching graduate and professional students and establishing a vigorous, cutting-edge, externally funded research program. Requirements include a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in a relevant discipline, postdoctoral training, and a strong publication record. To apply, please send a single PDF document containing a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, up to 3 selected reprints, and a 2 page description of current and planned research interests to: https://facultyopportunities.wustl.edu/Posting/detail/1010203. Three letters of recommendation should be sent separately.  All materials should be received by November 1, 2017; applications thereafter will be considered on a rolling basis.
