Microbial, Pathogens & Immunity Research Faculty
Rush University Medical Center
Chicago, IL

The Department of Microbial Pathogens and Immunity (MPI) (https://www.rushu.rush.edu/rush-medical-college/departments/department-microbial-pathogens-and-immunity) at Rush University Medical Center is undergoing a vigorous expansion phase under new leadership and invites applications for full time faculty appointments at all ranks.  We are currently recruiting candidates with expertise in basic and applied research in HIV/AIDS, neuroimmunology, specifically glial biology and interface with neurodegenerative diseases, neurovirology, and mucosal immunology. The positions will be supported by competitive start-up packages and state-of-the art research facilities.

MPI is predominantly a research department within Rush Medical College. Our faculty members are nationally and internationally recognized with a research focus on HIV/AIDS (neurovirology, mucosal immunology, drug abuse co-morbidity) and host-pathogen interactions. The faculty is dedicated to innovative and impactful research and mentoring of graduate students and/or post-doctoral fellows. The faculty has no formal roles in significant didactic graduate or medical school teaching, although they may choose to contribute to this mission.  

Competitive candidates should have active research programs, with current and/or past history of funding, an outstanding publication track record, and emerging and/or national reputation in area of expertise equivalent to research experience and faculty rank. Physician scientists are encouraged to apply and will have joint appointments in an appropriate clinical department as well as in MPI. As a department committed to diversity, we encourage applications from under-represented minority groups in science. 

The application process is biphasic, phase 1 involves submission of NIH style biosketch.  After an initial screen, competitive applicants will be asked, in the second phase, to provide a cover letter, a summary of research vision, curriculum vitae, and names/email addresses of three references. Initial biosketch submission is preferred by August 15th, 2019. Job posting will remain active until suitable candidates are identified.
