The Department of Microbiology & Immunology (M&I) at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth seeks applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the area of molecular microbiology to join our collegial and collaborative department and scientific community studying microbes and their impact on human health. Exceptional candidates at a senior rank may also be considered.
We seek outstanding applicants with the capacity to direct an independent, vigorous, innovative, and extramurally funded research program using contemporary approaches to address fundamental questions related to the mechanisms that microbes utilize to influence their environments. Areas of research interest include studies focused on fungi, bacteria, viruses, and parasites that include but are not limited to studies of host-microbe interactions, microbe-microbe interactions, ecological niche adaptation, responses to therapeutic anti-microbial agents, microbial pathogenesis, and microbial biotechnology development. In addition to research excellence, candidates should excel in both didactic and laboratory-based mentoring and teaching.
Faculty members in M&I are members of the PhD graduate program in Molecular and Cellular Biology and participate in NIH-supported training grant programs in Microbiology and Molecular Pathogenesis(M2P2), Cystic Fibrosis/Lung Biology, and Immunology. Depending on areas of expertise, successful candidates may also join Dartmouth’s graduate programs in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences, and Experimental and Molecular Medicine.
Dartmouth is highly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds, including but not limited to: racial and ethnic minorities, women, individuals who identify with LGBTQ+ communities, veterans, individuals with disabilities, individuals from lower income backgrounds, and/or first-generation college graduates.
