Faculty Position in Fungal Pathogenesis
The Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at the University of Texas McGovern Medical School in Houston seeks outstanding applicants for tenure track positions at any level. The department will build on existing strengths in eukaryotic microbiology by recruiting an investigator whose research focuses on the genetics, genomics, molecular biology, and/or virulence mechanisms of pathogenic fungi. Candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. and postdoctoral experience and will be expected to build an extramurally-funded research program and to contribute to graduate and medical education.
Successful candidates will join a department with faculty studying fundamental biological processes in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic model systems, pathogenic mechanisms of bacteria, fungi, and protozoan parasites, and host-pathogen interactions. Department faculty have access to a wide array of resources, including BSL-3 facilities, a state-of-the-art vivarium and outstanding microscopy facilities. Further information about the department’s facilities and research of the current faculty can be found at https://med.uth.edu/mmg/.
