The Department of Biological Sciences at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Molecular Virology starting August 20th, 2018. We seek broadly trained applicants studying viruses of eukaryotes or prokaryotes with a broad range of molecular techniques. The ability to teach virology at the undergraduate and M.S. level is required. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the teaching, research, and service missions of the department. The duties include developing and teaching courses in virology and contributing to teaching cell/molecular and microbiology core courses and graduate seminars, developing and sustaining an independent externally funded research program in molecular virology that involves undergraduate and graduate (M.S.) students and leads to peer-reviewed publications, and participating in service to the department, college, university, and community. Applicants must have a Ph.D. and postdoctoral experience.

CSULB has a long tradition of training undergraduates and MS students for careers in science by involving students in productive research and through a commitment to effective pedagogy.
