Tenure-Track Faculty Position (Assistant Professor)

The Department of Integrative Immunobiology (https://immunobiology.duke.edu/), in the Duke University School of Medicine, invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions. We anticipate making at least one tenure track appointment at the Assistant Professor level, but appointments to the rank of Associate or Professor level will be considered for exceptional applicants. Duke IIB’s research mission is to understand how the immune system functions with an overarching goal of preventing and treating human diseases. We are particularly interested in candidates with research programs focused on innate and adaptive immunity, tumor immunology, and neuroimmunity, but will consider all programs in the broader field of immunobiology. Please visit https://immunobiology.duke.edu/join-us to learn more about IIB and our mission.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a PhD, MD/PhD, or equivalent degree with a track record of scholarly creativity and productivity, a stated commitment to integrate into our exciting, collaborative, and growing immunobiology community, and a dedication to contribute to our values of equity and service. Successful candidates will be expected to establish a productive and innovative research program, obtain extramural research funding, and participate in graduate and post-graduate training and mentoring.

Application: The application package should include a:

1) Cover letter. 2) Curriculum vitae, highlighting the significance and your role in key publications. 3) Three-page research statement that describes past accomplishments (~1 page) and future research plans (~2 pages). 4) One-page statement that addresses your commitment to creating equitable, diverse, and inclusive environments in research and mentoring. This is an important component of the application and should be illustrated by examples from personal experiences and plans for future contributions. 5) List of names and contact information for three references.
