Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant field and are expected to have postdoctoral experience and a strong publication record. Responsibilities include establishing a research program with extramural funding and participating in both undergraduate and graduate teaching, including an undergraduate course in Microbiology. The successful candidate will be offered newly renovated laboratory facilities, a competitive salary and start-up package, and will have the opportunity to participate in interdisciplinary graduate programs in Biogeoscience and Bioinformatics/Systems Biology.
