Assistant Professor/Assistant Entomologist in Genetics/Genomics of Arthropod Vectors of Human Diseases
January 15, 2024
Full-Time, 9 month tenure-track
Remote/ Telework Option
The UC salary consists of a base pay of $74,600-$97,200 for Assistant Professors and additional off-scale to be commensurate with market value, qualifications and experiences.
The purpose of this position is to develop an innovative, fundamental and translational research program in the area of Genetics and Genomics of Arthropod Vectors of Human Disease.
Required qualifications for this position that must be met by the date of application include: Ph.D. in Life Sciences or a related field.
Preferred qualifications for this position include: The candidate should have a strong background in the molecular and physiological mechanisms underlying the spread of human viral, bacterial, or parasitic pathogens that are transmitted by arthropods. Areas of research emphasis may include molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis, vector host preference, transmission biology, host-vector-pathogen relationships, vector population genetics, genetic mechanisms of insecticide resistance, and the development of new genetic strategies or approaches to be used to control arthropod-vectored human diseases. Postdoctoral research experience is preferred.
This position will start on July 1, 2024. The purpose of this position is to develop an innovative, fundamental and translational research program in the area of Genetics and Genomics of Arthropod Vectors of Human Disease. This 9-month, tenure-track position is a 40% Instruction and 60% Organized Research appointment. The final candidate should develop a strong basic and/or translational research program investigating the molecular, genetic, and/or genomic basis of arthropod vectors of human diseases. Teaching responsibilities may include participation in existing courses on medical entomology, molecular biology, genomics, disease transmission, and population genetics, as well as development of new courses and supervision of graduate and undergraduate students.
