Faculty Position in Microbial Pathogenesis, cWIDR, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis

The Center for Therapeutics in Women’s Infectious Disease (http://cwidr.wustl.edu/) invites applicants for a TENURE-TRACK faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Molecular Microbiology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. We are seeking applicants in any area of microbiology who are motivated to create a high-impact research program in microbial pathogenesis focused on infectious diseases relevant to women, and to engage in interdisciplinary, collaborative research directed toward the development of novel therapeutic approaches.  Previous experience in women’s health research is not a prerequisite, and we especially encourage applicants with bold new perspectives.  We welcome applications from members of groups that are typically underrepresented in science. The successful applicant will occupy space in cWIDR’s state-of-the-art laboratories located in the BJC Institute of Health Building. Washington University offers an intellectually exciting, collegial, supportive environment with robust graduate and post-doctoral programs and extensive opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration and interaction with the Cortex Innovation Community, a premier bioscience technology and innovation hub.  Additional information can be found at www.microbiology.wustl.edu.  Applicants should be committed to teaching graduate and professional students and establishing a vigorous, cutting-edge, externally funded research program.

Requirements include a Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline, postdoctoral training, and evidence of scholarly publications.
