We are seeking to recruit a pediatric microbiome researcher into a non-tenured Academic Track assistant professor position in the Department of Pediatrics, Neonatology Division. Transition to a tenure-track position is expected during the early junior faculty years once research independence is established.
A successful candidate will have a Ph.D. with a minimum of 3 years of post-doctoral experience in the microbiome field. Applicants with expertise in microbiome analysis, computational biology, integrative multi-omics data analysis, and collaborative research including a record of mentoring trainees (essential qualifications) are encouraged to apply.
Preferred qualifications for the ideal candidate include expertise in the study of early-life human microbiomes and their associations with short and long-term health outcomes including metabolic health (particularly obesity and its related outcomes) and neurodevelopment. The successful recruit must have a desire to develop an independent research program with independent funding, as well as work collaboratively with faculty in the Department of Pediatrics to move research projects forward and assist with research program development with a focus on pediatric microbiome links to health and disease.
