College of Agriculture and Life Sciences
Cornell’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (https://cals.cornell.edu/) invites applications for a 9-month, tenure-track faculty position in Host-Microbe Interactions. The new faculty member will be expected to develop and sustain a strong, internationally recognized, and well-funded research program in the area of host-microbe biology. The studied interactions between host and microbe may span the continuum from pathogenic to beneficial, and may emphasize any host system including vertebrate animals, invertebrates, and plants. Particular areas of focus may include but are not limited to manipulation of host cellular pathways by microbes, dynamic interplay between infecting microbes and host physiological and immunological responses, microbial responses and adaptations to the host environment, and systems-level functional interactions between hosts and microbial communities. This hire will be associated with formation of the Cornell Institute of Host-Microbe Interactions and Disease (CIHMID) in early 2017 and is consistent with a campus-wide emphasis on expanding research and teaching in Infection Biology. The search is department-open, and the eventual appointment may be made in any relevant CALS department. The appointment will carry 60% research and 40% teaching responsibilities, with the specific courses taught to be based on the interests and ability of the candidate and the needs of the appointing department. It is anticipated that the appointment will be made at the Assistant Professor level, although an early Associate appointment may be considered in exceptional circumstances.
Qualifications: Applicants should have a Ph.D., as well as demonstrated and prospective excellence in research in relevant disciplinary areas.
Salary: Salary and start-up funding will be competitive, and commensurate with background and experience.
Application Procedure: Candidates should submit a cover letter, research statement, teaching statement, curriculum vitae, and up to three representative publications via https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/8613 . Candidates should also arrange for three letters of reference to be uploaded upon submission of the application. Inquiries may be directed to the chair of the search committee, Brian Lazzaro, at email@example.com. Review of applications will begin December 13 and will continue until the position is filled.
