The Department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Mississippi State University, is seeking applications for a Tenure Track position in Infectious Diseases and Computational Biology.  Candidates must have a PhD with emphasis in computational biology, bioinformatics, or other related field and a DVM or equivalent degree with relevant, highly productive, infectious disease research experience. Commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration and integrated team science are required. Priority will be given to applicants with advanced training in machine learning, statistical learning techniques, or epidemiology.

The successful candidate is expected to establish a vigorous, independent, and externally funded research program with broad focus on computational approaches to study infectious diseases, and host/pathogen interactions. We are particularly interested in applicants using computational methods with large-scale data to investigate infectious disease epidemiology, study mechanisms of virulence, translational approaches to disease diagnostic and biomarker test development, and new drug target identification and vaccine development. Responsibilities will include didactic and laboratory teaching in the professional curriculum and/or graduate student program. Although clinical or diagnostic service is not a requirement of the position, it may be considered. The division of duties will be at levels consistent with the candidate’s strengths and interests.

Salary and rank are commensurate with experience and qualifications.  Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.  Qualified applicants are invited to submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, transcripts, and names of three references to Dr. Robert Wills, Head, Department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Mississippi State University, Box 6100, Mississippi State, Mississippi 39762-9825.  Queries regarding the position can be directed to Dr. Wills by email wills@cvm.msstate.edu.  Applicants are invited to use this link to apply for the position:
