Instructor/Assistant Professor

Pediatric Infectious Diseases – Research Faculty # 1010253

The Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Washington University, in conjunction with St. Louis Children’s Hospital, is seeking junior or mid-level faculty for appointment on the Investigator Track with a robust research program in microbiology (virology, bacteriology, parasitology, or mycology) and infectious diseases.  This position would join other investigators in the Division with NIH-funded research programs, and would interact with pediatric ID clinicians and fellows as well as clinician-scientists from across Pediatrics.  The Division enjoys close working relationships with the Departments of Molecular Microbiology and Pathology/Immunology, as well as the adult ID division within the Department of Medicine.  This position will also join the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences (the umbrella structure over all biomedical graduate programs) and the Program in Molecular Microbiology and Microbial Pathogenesis, and the faculty member is ultimately expected to train graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in his/her laboratory.  The successful applicant will have an established record of high-impact publications in their field.  Teaching of pediatric ID fellows, residents, and microbiology or immunology graduate students comprises a minor component of this position.  The faculty member’s salary will be supported in part by the Department of Pediatrics, though the faculty member is expected to compete successfully for external grants.  

MD or MD/PhD with training in relevant biomedical science; strong track record of publication and ability to secure external (e.g., NIH) funding.
