|Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology and the Center for Advanced Microbial Processing|
Tenure-track faculty position available for a highly imaginative, computationally oriented, bioinformatically driven biomedical research scientist working at the intersection of microbiology and other academic or technical disciplines. This position is one of a cluster of seven faculty positions developed within the Department of Microbiology and Immunology as part of Professor Garth Ehrlich's recruitment to the Drexel University College of Medicine to develop world-class bacteriology and omic programs. The incumbent will also be appointed as a member of one or more of the Research Centers of Excellence (RCE's) that Professor Ehrlich directs within the Institute of Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease (IMMID). These include: the Center for Genomic Sciences (CGS); the Center for Advanced Microbial Processing (CAMP); and the Center for Biofilms and Chronic Infections (CBCI). The successful candidate will be hired as either an Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor on the tenure track depending on experience and funding levels. Applicant is expected to develop/expand an independent, robust, extramurally-funded research program, but as a full member of one or more of the IMMID RCE's they must also be a team player with excellent interpersonal and communication skills to be able to work effectively in a multi-PI, team environment and to contribute to large-scale multidisciplinary projects. Current strengths within the RCE's include: large-scale and population-level comparative bacterial genomics; high fidelity, species-specific microbiome analyses; animal models of infectious disease; host-pathogen interactions; pathogen evolution; microbial ecology; microbe-microbe interactions; bioinformatics of nucleic acids and small molecules; mining of microbial genomes for useful biosynthetic pathways; development of novel antimicrobials targeting biofilm bacteria; and engineering approaches for the development of megabase mapping and sequencing technologies. Preference will be given to individuals with established on-going federal funding.
Primary academic appointment will be in the Drexel University College of Medicine Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Professor Brian Wigdahl, Chair and Director, Institute for Molecular Medicine and Infectious Disease. Secondary appointments will be available in appropriate clinical, basic science and engineering departments throughout Drexel University with approval of the Chair.
