The Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Missouri invites applications for one or more tenure-track virology faculty positions at any rank. We seek strong individuals in any area of modern virology, broadly defined.

We encourage applications from individuals who can demonstrate a commitment to increasing diversity, inclusion and access to higher education for groups underrepresented in the sciences. The new hire will join a diverse group of virologists in the pathogenesis wing of the Life Sciences Center (LSC), a state-of-the-art, multi-disciplinary facility.

The successful candidate will be expected to establish and/or maintain a strong extramurally funded research program and to participate in undergraduate, graduate and professional education. We offer a competitive salary and start-up package, a vigorous doctoral program, a highly interactive faculty and outstanding research core facilities. Columbia is consistently ranked among the top 10 college towns in the U.S. MU is committed to achieving the goal of a diverse and inclusive academic community of faculty, staff and students. We strongly encourage applications from women and members of groups historically underrepresented in STEM fields.
