The Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Wake Forest School of Medicine invites applications to fill two tenure track faculty positions in the areas of immunology, bacteriology, or virology. While all areas of focus will be considered, we are particularly seeking individuals studying host-pathogen interactions and innate immune responses to pathogens. In addition, we encourage applications from those whose research shares synergies with members of the NCI-designated Wake Forest Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Candidates should hold a PhD, MD or equivalent degree. In addition to maintaining a robust internationally recognized research program, successful candidates will be expected to contribute to departmental teaching and mentoring for graduate students. Start-up package, laboratory space, salary and rank will be commensurate with experience.

The Department of Microbiology and Immunology has a highly collaborative, research intensive faculty that crosses the disciplines of immunology, virology, and bacteriology. Additional information is available at https://school.wakehealth.edu/Departments/Microbiology-and-Immunology.  Wake Forest School of Medicine offers a dynamic environment for cutting edge multidisciplinary research. Collaborative opportunities with other research entities include an NCI-funded Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), the Sticht Center on Aging, the Center for Human Genomics, the Center for Vaccines at the Extremes of Aging, and the WFU Primate facility.

Winston-Salem is a vibrant community with an exciting cultural environment that is perennially ranked among the best places to live in the U.S. Situated within close proximity to both the Blue Ridge Mountains and the coast, Winston-Salem allows residents opportunity for a wide array of recreational activities.
