Texas Biomedical Research Institute (Texas Biomed) is seeking to increase its expertise in Anatomic Pathology to meet the growing demand for this discipline in rodent and Non-human primate (NHP) research (https://www.txbiomed.org/research/). Successful faculty candidates will be expected to synergize with faculty and staff in existing Programs to foster Texas Biomed’s efforts to become national/international leaders in infectious disease research, including research on susceptible populations. Texas Biomed is a free standing, private nonprofit research institute. It supports BSL2, BSL3 and BSL4 programs with unparalleled resources, and is the host institution of the Southwest National Primate Research Center (SNPRC), one of the seven National Primate Research Centers supported by NIH in the U.S.

Texas Biomed seeks to recruit an Anatomic Veterinary Pathologist for a faculty position at any rank. The position involves a 50% commitment to service activities in Anatomic Veterinary Pathology (rodent and NHP models) and a 50% commitment to research activities that synergize with the Institute’s three Scientific Research Programs:

Host-Pathogen Interactions: The basic biology of infection in humans and animals; the immediate intersection of host and pathogen.  

Disease Intervention and Prevention: Development of diagnostics, treatments and vaccines to reduce the severity of/or cure infection.

Population Health: Identification of correlates of susceptibility or resistance to infectious and chronic diseases on a population level (both hosts and microbes).

The candidate is expected to develop/expand a successful and impactful independent research program that will be supported by federal and independent agency funds. The successful candidate may work at BSL2, BSL3 and BSL4 environments.

Qualifications: D.V.M, V.M.D, or equivalent and advanced training in anatomic pathology. American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP) board certification is preferred although board eligible candidates will be considered. Demonstrated research productivity and evidence of an independently-funded research program. Molecular pathology and image analysis experience preferred. Experience working with interdisciplinary research teams, and mentoring members of underrepresented groups.

Applicants should include: (1) Curriculum vitae, (2) a summary of past and present research accomplishments highlighting their relevance to one or more of the three Texas Biomed Scientific Research Programs, (3) a summary of future research plans, and (4) names and emails of at least three professional references.  Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
