The Center Emerging and Re-emerging Pathogens at New Jersey Medical School, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, located in Newark, NJ, invites applications for full time, tenure-track appointments at the Assistant, Associate or Professor level. We are currently recruiting candidates with expertise in basic, applied, and/or computational research in Tuberculosis, HIV, SARS CoV2, other RNA viruses considered to be of pandemic potential. Both those with experience in standard laboratory methods and those with backgrounds in data science methods for infectious disease research are strongly encouraged to apply. The position will be supported by a competitive start up package with exceptional candidates being considered for further support as Chancellor Scholars.
Candidate Requirements: Applicants must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree, post-doctoral experience, excellent communication skills and a record of productivity in basic or computational infectious disease research. Candidates at the Assistant Professor level should have a substantial trajectory toward developing a rigorous, externally-funded research program. Candidates at the Associate Professor level should have a national scientific reputation, current research funding and a history of mentorship and leadership. Candidates at the Professor level should provide additional evidence of distinction above that of an associate professor, including international scientific reputation.
The Center for Emerging Pathogens: The Center is an integral part of the newly established Institute for Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases (i3D) at RBHS. Research in Infection and Inflammation has been selected for strategic development at RBHS with a vision of transforming this already strong program into a center of excellence and international reputation. With the creation of RBHS in July 2013 Rutgers University has become one of the most comprehensive university-based centers for improving human health and health care. We seek candidates to join The Center for Emerging Pathogens at a pivotal time of growth in research excellence. Core resources include flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, state-of-the-art proteomics and genomics centers, extensive biosafety level three facilities, and newly renovated animal facilities.
