The Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey invites applicants for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level beginning Fall 2024. The encompassing theme of the Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology is the study of fundamental life processes from molecules to biomes. We seek a colleague who shares our passion to achieve a healthy and sustainable future through excellence in research, teaching, and outreach in evolution of microbial pathogens and/or antibiotic resistance. We are particularly interested in expanding our faculty to include a scholar and educator working on the environmental, physiological, biochemical, and/or genetic dimensions of antibiotic resistance, including factors driving the development and transfer of antibiotic resistance, or developing new solutions to these problems, including discovery and development of new antimicrobials or characterization of antimicrobial targets, though any aspect of evolutionary medicine in microbiology is of potential interest.  This hire is part of a new evolutionary medicine faculty cluster that will catalyze research and teaching initiatives at Rutgers University in how we approach treating chronic and acute illnesses. Successful applicants will be competitive for external funding opportunities to establish an integrated research program and must be committed to teaching core and elective courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels and to mentoring research students at all degree levels.
