Faculty Position in Molecular Microbiology

Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

The Department of Molecular Microbiology at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine is recruiting faculty at the Assistant Professor level. We are particularly interested in scientists pursuing fundamental aspects of microbiology with an emphasis on host-pathogen interactions, emerging infectious disease, antimicrobial resistance, structural biology and women’s infectious disease. Applicants with bold new perspectives and ‘outside the box’ approaches, particularly those focused on interdisciplinary, collaborative research are strongly encouraged as are those from members of groups that are typically under-represented in science. Candidates with foci on infectious diseases related to women’s health would also be appointed to the Center for Women’s Infectious Disease Research. Washington University offers an intellectually exciting, collegial, and supportive environment with robust graduate and post-doctoral programs and extensive opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration and entrepreneurship. We are home to a uniquely broad and interactive microbial pathogenesis community that spans the university, supported by vibrant and integrated centers which further enrich the intellectual environment. Outstanding core facilities including genomics, small-molecule screening, imaging, Cryo-EM, mass-spectrometry, high-performance cluster computing and vivarium are available. In addition to developing a vigorous, cutting-edge, externally funded research program, teaching of graduate and professional students will be required.

Candidates should possess a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in a relevant discipline, postdoctoral training, and a strong publication record. To apply, please send a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, up to 3 selected publications, a 2-page description of planned research interests, a statement of contributions to diversity, and contact information for three references to: https://facultyopportunities.wustl.edu/apply/Posting/Detail/1010655.

All materials received by December 15, 2021, will be considered by the search committee; applications thereafter will be considered on a rolling basis.  Leading candidates will be invited to visit Feb. 9-13, 2022, and participate in a symposium Feb. 10.
