San Antonio is a multicultural city that captures the history and spirit of Texas. Now the seventh largest city in the United States, its location at the foot of the beautiful Texas Hill Country, cost of living, climate, and diverse restaurants, parks, museums, sports teams, and of course the River Walk, make San Antonio one of the most attractive and livable cities in the country. It is a city that has retained its sense of community, while conscientiously incorporating 21st century progressiveness.
The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, located in the northern suburbs of the city, and one of the 15 components in The University of Texas System, has established itself as a premier educational and research institution and one of the guiding lights leading San Antonio to its future.
We are seeking outstanding candidates to fill at least two tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. These are in addition to the five tenure-track assistant professors already recruited throughout the last six months by the department of Microbiology & Immunology under the leadership of the new chairman.
Candidates must employ molecular, cellular and/or genetic approaches to study the interactions of the immune system with bacteria or viruses in health or immunodeficiency (primary or acquired). Areas of interest could include mucosal responses, epigenetics, vaccines and autoimmunity. In addition to a competitive start-up package and newly renovated (open lab) space, significant resources from the institution, advanced core facilities, the UT System and Texas State agencies, such as the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), are available to outstanding candidates.
The selected candidates will be expected to play a major role in the development of the Department in the coming years. Currently, the Department has 44 faculty (20 primary, 24 secondary) covering a broad range of topics (http://uthscsa.edu/micro-immunology).
