Assistant, Associate or Full Professor Job # 12602

The School of Life Sciences (SOLS; sols.asu.edu) at Arizona State University invites applications for a full time open‐rank, tenured or tenure‐track faculty position in the area of microbiome research in collaboration with the Center for Fundamental and Applied Microbiomics of the Biodesign Institute (biodesign.asu.edu/cfam). Rank and tenure status will be commensurate with experience. Anticipated start date is August 15, 2019.

We seek to expand a strong group of scientist focused on understanding the functional and structural basis of complex systems of microbes and their relevance for human, animal and plant biology, the environment and man‐made systems. The successful candidate will work to advance the discipline with innovative technologies and approaches to provide an integrated systems understanding of microbiomes, and establish general functional principles that are not only explanatory but also predictive of the behavior of microbial communities.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop and maintain an innovative, independent, extramurally funded research program, provide excellent classroom instruction as assigned by SOLS and contribute to curriculum development. The successful candidate will mentor students and postdoctoral fellows, interact with interdisciplinary faculty at ASU, and provide service to the department, college and university. A competitive start‐up package will be provided.

All prospective candidates must hold a doctoral degree by the time of appointment in a field relevant to microbiome research, a proven track record of novel research, and relevant postdoctoral experience. Desired qualifications include a record of publication in peer reviewed ISI rated journals, demonstration of excellence in teaching and/or mentoring, and experience working in a multidisciplinary environment, and demonstrated success meeting the needs of diverse student populations and/or reaching out to diverse communities. Candidate for Associate or Full Professor rank must have a track record of significant extramural research funding.

To apply, please send a cover letter that identifies the rank for which consideration is sought, a curriculum vitae, three representative publications, a statement of research vision and plans, a teaching statement, and contact information (name, email and phone number) of three references. References will only be contacted for finalists at a later stage in the search. Applications should be sent electronically as pdf files to Microbiome Search Committee solsfacultysearch2@asu.edu. The initial closing date for receipt of application is December 1, 2018; if not filled, review will continue every week thereafter until the search is closed. A background check is required for employment.
