Assistant Professor of Microbiology (Tenure-Track)

The Department of Microbiology and Immunobiology at Harvard Medical School (http://mbib.med.harvard.edu) invites applications for tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. We seek outstanding scientists performing research in any area of microbiology to join our soon-to-be independent Microbiology department.

The positions offer outstanding scholarly and scientific resources in a collegial and collaborative environment. There are exceptionally strong ties to related departments throughout Harvard University, the Harvard affiliated teaching hospitals, and the Boston community. The positions provide the opportunity to join a vibrant community of microbiologists at Harvard University interested in molecular and quantitative approaches to fundamental microbiology, and the development of countermeasures against bacterial and viral infections, including antimicrobials and vaccines.

The successful candidate(s) will become members of the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program (http://www.hms.harvard.edu/dms/bbs/), and, if appropriate, the Program in Virology; both are campus wide programs with strong focuses on graduate education. The positions also offer the opportunity to teach exceptional graduate and medical students with strong interests in microbiology and medical sciences.

Candidates with a Ph.D., M.D., M.D./Ph.D., or an equivalent doctoral degree with a strong interest in microbiology should submit a cover letter, C.V. (including a full bibliography), a concise 2-page summary of research accomplishments and a 2-page summary of future research interests through the Harvard job portal listed below. Applicants should arrange for letters of recommendation from three reviewers who will receive separate instructions from the portal at the time of application.
