    Microbiology and Molecular Genetics
    Faculty Position(s)

    The Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at the University of Texas McGovern Medical School in Houston seeks outstanding applicants for tenure track positions. The department is especially interested in developing new faculty at the Assistant Professor level, but more experienced applicants will also be considered. We seek to expand our research profile in all areas of the microbial sciences, but applicants that study fundamental biological processes in prokaryotic or eukaryotic model systems are particularly encouraged to apply.

    Candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. and postdoctoral experience and will be expected to build an extramurally-funded research program and to contribute to graduate and medical education.  Applicants at the Assistant Professor level should have a track record of innovative research at the cutting edge of microbiology and the capability to develop an independently-funded laboratory.  Applicants at higher ranks must have an established, respected, and funded research program.  Successful candidates will receive generous start-up funding, a salary commensurate with experience, newly renovated space, and a competitive benefits package.

    MMG is a vibrant community of talented and successful faculty, trainees, and staff, and has a proven record of excellence in research and education. Research in the department focuses on mechanisms of fundamental life processes alongside microbial pathogenesis, using a variety of bacterial and eukaryotic systems. The core interests of the MMG faculty include gene regulation and stress responses; cell division and differentiation; macromolecular machines; molecular mechanisms of bacterial, fungal, and parasite pathogenesis; and host-pathogen interactions.

    The University of Texas McGovern Medical School is located in the Texas Medical Center (TMC), the largest complex of biomedical and health-related institutions in the world. This proximity to numerous high-caliber research institutions promotes a highly collaborative atmosphere for MMG faculty within Houston’s broader research community. The TMC also offers an unparalleled array of resources, research centers, and core facilities. Further information about the department’s facilities, environment, and research of the current faculty can be found at https://med.uth.edu/mmg/.

    Houston is a diverse, dynamic, and growing city whose economy invests heavily in research and development in biomedicine, energy, and technology. World-class professional, cultural and recreational activities make Houston one of the most appealing, yet affordable, large cities in North America.

    Applicants interested in joining a growing department committed to excellence in research and education should submit a cover letter, CV, summary of research experience and plans, and names and addresses of three referees via this link: http://phxc3c.rfer.us/UTHh_KJ1k.

    Review of applications will begin immediately; for full consideration, applications should be received by October 15, 2023.
