Applications are invited for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in either the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics or the Department of Plant Pathology and Microbiology, depending on the credentials and professional goals of the successful candidate. This search will fill the fourth position authorized for expansion of the Center for Phage Technology (CPT), an interdisciplinary center established by the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents in 2010 and focused on translating basic science into emerging bacteriophage technologies. However, the search is not restricted to scientists with direct involvement in phage research. We seek an exceptional scientist committed to establishing a nationally-competitive research program. There is heightened interest for applicants with expertise synergistic with understanding phage biology and its applications, particularly in the areas of synthetic biology, biophysics, structural biology, and bacteria-plant interactions. Nevertheless, the excellence of the individual candidate will take precedence over the area of special interest. Competitive salary, start-up funds, laboratory space and access to instrumental cores will be provided. The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree in a relevant field and be expected to teach courses in relevant disciplines.
Please send a PDF file that contains a cover letter, CV, research summary (past, present, and planned), a teaching statement and contact information for three professional references to: email@example.com. Applications received by October 30, 2012 will be guaranteed full consideration by the Search Committee, although review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
Equal Opportunity Employer.
Deadline: October 30, 2012
