As part of a major, multi-year initiative to expand specific research areas across the IU Bloomington campus, the Departments of Biology and Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry invite applications at the Associate or Full Professor level in the area of Virology; established Assistant Professors will also be considered. We are particularly interested in scientists investigating the biology and pathogenesis of human viruses, emphasizing emerging and re-emerging viruses including (but not limited to) SARS coronavirus, influenza virus, norovirus, and HIV. Scientists with expertise in the immunology, molecular epidemiology, or molecular biology of these viruses are also encouraged to apply. Start dates of Fall 2023 or Fall 2024 are possible.
The hire will complement and broaden the highly collaborative IU community of internationally recognized virologists. The community includes fifteen well-funded laboratories in the Departments of Biology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Chemistry, and Bioengineering. Scientific strengths include structural virology, virus-host interaction, virus assembly, VLP platform technologies, antiviral and vaccine development, and development of cutting-edge analytical methods for examining viruses. Several virology-oriented labs have strong interactions with industry to translate academic research into real world applications. IU virology laboratories are supported by outstanding research resources, including state-of-the-art facilities for genomics and bioinformatics, light and electron microscopy, flow cytometry, protein analysis, biophysical instrumentation, and crystallography.
Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in relevant fields, with a strong record of research accomplishments and external funding. Successful candidates will be expected to maintain a vigorous externally funded research program, and to participate in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. To apply, please submit a cover letter, CV, research statement (past, present, and future; up to three pages), teaching statement (up to two pages), a 1-2 page statement on fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion in and out of the classroom, and the names and contact information for three or more references via https://indiana.peopleadmin.com/postings/16365. Applications will start to be evaluated on February 15, 2023, but the position will remain open until filled. Please address inquiries concerning the search to Jennifer Tarter at 812-856-3984 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
