Applications will be reviewed continuously until the position is filled. It is expected that initial interviews will begin in September of 2020. To apply, please submit your application including curriculum vitae, detailed statement of research accomplishments and plans and teaching/mentoring philosophy at www.jobs.vt.edu, posting # 514105 .  Also, have at least three references post their letters of support to the same site.
