Job Description





The Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Cell Biology (http://medicine.hsc.wvu.edu/micro/) seeks a distinguished scientist as tenure-track faculty (rank open) to further its scientific exploration and discovery that targets cancer immunotherapy. The successful applicant will hold a primary faculty appointment in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Cell Biology as well as membership in the WVU Cancer Institute (http://www.wvucancer.org/home) in the WVU School of Medicine.

This joint recruitment with the WVU Cancer Institute provides an exceptional opportunity to participate in robust, interdisciplinary basic and translational research and training programs in a highly collaborative atmosphere. The appointed faculty will be expected to conduct research on cancer immunotherapy and teach immunology to medical, graduate and undergraduate students. The successful candidate will be a recognized investigator with a PhD or MD/PhD degree and a track record of independent research, demonstrated by high quality publications in peer-reviewed journals and extramural funding commensurate with years of experience. Salary and academic rank will be commensurate with qualification and experience. Preferably, the selected candidate will hold active extramural funding in order to integrate rapidly with ongoing research at the intersection of immunology and oncology. Dedicated laboratory space and competitive operating funds will be made available.
