The Microbiology Program in the Indiana University Department of Biology (https://biology.indiana.edu/graduate/microbiology/index.html) invites applications for a tenured tenure-track position in Virology at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. We are particularly interested in scientists studying emerging viruses. We encourage applications from candidates focused on the following areas of research: structure-function analysis of viral proteins, cell and molecular biology of events in viral replication, cellular responses to virus infection, and experimental approaches to virus evolution. Scientists working on model viral systems that inform our understanding of the biology of emerging viruses will also be considered. Start dates of Fall 2023 or Fall 2024 are possible.
This position is part of a significant, continuing expansion in the life sciences at IU Bloomington and represents an exceptional opportunity to join a strong Microbiology Program comprised of both Virologists and Bacteriologists. There also exists opportunities for interactions with programs in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, Genome, Cell and Developmental Biology, Evolutionary Biology, and Medical Sciences.
The selected candidate will be provided with a competitive startup package and salary and will have access to outstanding research resources, including state-of-the-art facilities for genomics and bioinformatics, light and electron microscopy, flow cytometry, protein analysis, analytical chemistry, biophysical instrumentation, and crystallography.
Bloomington is a quintessential cosmopolitan college town located in the rolling hills and forests of south-central Indiana. Bloomington offers the sophistication of a cultural capital with international-caliber performances in opera, theater, music and dance – all in a small town, walkable, friendly setting. The city is located among the hills, lakes, and forested landscape of south-central Indiana, providing extensive opportunities for outdoor activities including hiking, camping, water sports and cycling.
Applicants must hold a doctoral degree and have relevant postdoctoral experience with a strong record of research accomplishments. Successful candidates will be expected to develop a vigorous externally funded research program, and to participate in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
