Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Global Health

Assistant Professor of Human Pathogen or Vector Biology. The Department of Biological Sciences seeks faculty candidates who study the biology of human pathogens or vectors of importance to global health. Individuals with expertise in any area involving the biology of a human pathogen, pathogen vector, or the response of the human host to infection, particularly those with cross-disciplinary research programs, are encouraged to apply.

Assistant Professor of Infectious Disease Epidemiology. The Department of Biological Sciences in concert with the Eck Institute for Global Health (http://www.nd.edu/~eigh) seeks faculty candidates who use quantitative approaches to study mechanisms that influence the dynamics and/or control of human pathogen transmission. Candidates with cross-disciplinary interests in areas including epidemiology, quantitative modeling, disease ecology, or evolutionary approaches are encouraged to apply.

Both new faculty will contribute to the undergraduate and graduate teaching mission of the Department of Biological Sciences. The successful candidate will be expected to establish a vigorous externally funded research program that complements active interdisciplinary research in the department and across the University.

New faculty will join an integrative and collaborative research community with expertise that spans the breadth of the life sciences. Several faculty have active research partnerships with international field sites and associated partners, including in Africa, Latin America, Asia, and the South Pacific. Department faculty have access to state-of-the-art genomics, bioinformatics, computing, mass spectrometry and proteomics, and imaging cores, specialized BSL-3 containment laboratories, insect rearing and research facilities, and an AAALAC-accredited animal facility. Information on department and other college faculty and facilities can be found at http://biology.nd.edu and http://science.nd.edu. Opportunities also exist for collaboration with faculty at the adjoining Indiana University School of Medicine-South Bend.

The University of Notre Dame seeks to attract, develop, and retain the highest quality faculty. The University is an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to building a culturally diverse workplace.
