Description

The Section of Molecular Biology in the Division of Biological Sciences (www.biology.ucsd.edu) invites applications for a faculty position in Host/Microbe Interactions at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level. We are broadly searching for applicants working towards a mechanistic understanding of microbiomes, host-microbe interactions, and/or microbe-microbe interactions. Research topics could include, but are not limited to, beneficial or antagonistic interactions of viruses, bacteria, archaea, protozoa, or fungi with each other or their hosts. This position will complement existing strengths in this area.

The Division of Biological Sciences at UC San Diego is a vibrant center of scientific discovery, innovation, and collaboration. Our large research base spans many areas of biology and has one of the most celebrated graduate programs in the country. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.

All candidates must have earned a Ph.D. or equivalent degree, and be committed to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition to excellence and creativity in research and scholarship, successful candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion in higher education. We are especially interested in candidates who have created or contributed to programs that aim to increase access and success of underrepresented students and/or faculty in the sciences, and/or have detailed plans to accomplish such goals.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on University of California pay scales.
