The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) invites applications for a tenure-track ASSISTANT PROFESSOR position in microbial genetics/genomics to start in Fall 2020. We seek an outstanding candidate with a strong record of research in microbial genetics and pathogenesis. This position is part of a larger departmental strategic hiring initiative in Host-Pathogen Interactions.
Research may include mechanisms of bacterial virulence, antimicrobial resistance, microbe-host or microbe-virus interactions, effects of the host microbiome on disease, and related areas. Laboratory space accommodating BSL-1 or BSL-2 is available. A Ph.D. degree and at least 2 years postdoctoral experience in microbial genetics or a related area are required. The successful candidate is expected to establish a vigorous, extramurally funded research program, train students (undergraduate, M.S., and Ph.D.) and postdoctoral associates, and contribute to the biology curriculum, including a course in microbial genetics. We welcome applications from members of groups that are typically under-represented in science.
