The Department of Biology at San Diego State University (SDSU) is recruiting an individual at the assistant professor level. The successful candidate will develop a research program using molecular and -omics tools to study viral/microbial communities in marine ecosystems. Approaches that investigate links among biogeochemistry, microbial metabolism, and ecosystem health are particularly desirable.
The successful candidate will have a demonstrated record of research accomplishments, extramural support, and a capacity for mentoring, teaching, and collaboration. This position will be expected to mentor students in our Doctoral programs (offered jointly with the University of California) and Master of Science programs, to participate in the undergraduate and graduate teaching mission of SDSU, and to establish interdisciplinary collaborations with Biology faculty as well as members of the Viral Information Institute (VII). The VII is an interdisciplinary research center at SDSU that studies the role of microbial viruses in human health and ecosystems at multiple scales, combining cutting-edge research in molecular and cellular biology, microbiology, ecology, environmental science, biophysics, chemistry and biochemistry, mathematical modeling, and computer science.
Applicants should apply via Interfolio at https://apply.interfolio.com/69283 . Review of applications will begin Oct 29th, and will continue until the position is filled. Incomplete applications are not guaranteed full consideration. For more information see: http://www.bio.sdsu.edu/. The appointment will start in August 2020.
