The Department of Biology at the University of Texas at Arlington (http://www.uta.edu/biology/) invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. Research areas of interest include fundamental questions related to microbiomes and complex microbial communities, host-pathogen interactions, epidemiology, cellular biology, developmental biology, genetics, and global change biology. Approaches using cutting edge genomic, proteomic, bioinformatic and statistical modeling techniques are particularly attractive. Successful candidates will have a doctoral degree in a relevant field and will be expected to develop a nationally recognized, extramurally funded research program, as well as teach at the undergraduate and graduate (Master’s and Ph.D.) levels. Start-up funds, salaries, and teaching loads are highly competitive.
The Department and University have numerous resources including state-of-the-art labs, an Animal Care Facility, a Genomics Core Facility, a Center for Human Genomics, and the newly established Shimadzu Institute for Research Technologies – a major partnership between UT Arlington and Shimadzu Scientific Instruments that offers extensive resources for imaging, proteomics and analytical chemistry. The Department also benefits from access to core UT-system genomics and computational resources at UT Southwestern Medical Center and the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) – one of the leading advanced computing centers in the U.S. Excellent opportunities exist at UT Arlington and in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex for collaborations with researchers in ecology, evolution, genomics, biochemistry, and biomedical sciences.
Arlington is a city of approximately 365,000 and is conveniently located in the center of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
