As part of our long-term recruiting objectives, the Department of Microbiology at the University of Washington (https://microbiology.washington.edu ) has openings for three full-time positions at the rank of Assistant Professor tenure-track and one position at the rank of Associate Professor with tenure or Full Professor with tenure commensurate with experience. Successful candidates will perform research in any area of microbiology (bacteria, protisist or viruses), including but not limited to bacterial development or behavior, virus biology or pathogenesis, microbial evolution, structural microbiology, host-microbe interactions, or microbiome studies.
We offer the opportunity to join a vibrant and diverse group of researchers at the UW, its affiliated hospitals and the wider Seattle biomedical research community. The successful candidates will find highly interactive colleagues applying a wide range of approaches to fundamental microbiology, mechanisms of microbial-host interactions, and to the development of antimicrobial strategies.
The openings are 12-month service period positions in the School of Medicine with an anticipated start date of Fall 2020. In addition to research, our faculty teach outstanding trainees at the undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate levels, and engage widely in service activities.
Candidates for this position must hold a PhD degree in microbiology or related discipline and/or MD, (or foreign equivalent), and have a strong record of graduate and postdoctoral experience and publication. In order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa, graduates of foreign (non U.S.) medical schools must show successful completion of all three steps of the U.S. Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE) or equivalent as determined by the Secretary of Health and Health and Human Services.
