In support of Morehouse School of Medicine's Vision; “Leading the creation and advancement of health equity,” the Department of Microbiology, Biochemistry, and Immunology (MBI) is seeking an Assistant Professor, Microbiology and Emerging Pathogens Research.

Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) is developing a Natural Products Research Center (NPRC), which will focus on biological and biochemical research aimed at identifying, validating, and developing therapies from natural based products (e.g., plants, viruses, other natural sources). And the NPRC is establishing a new area of research around Emerging Pathogens Research. Hence, the successful candidate will be expected to work with existing and future NPRC faculty and staff, to teach and train students in microbiology, and therapeutic development and analysis targeting emerging pathogens, developing or maintaining their own independent, yet collaborative, research program. Thus, we are seeking a candidate with (i) expertise in drug development and analysis and (ii) the background in emerging pathogens to expand this area at MSM. Preferred linked broad research area that already exists at MSM is infectious diseases. Finally, familiarity with, and/or experience using, current bioinformatic methods to analyze and visualize data (e.g., proteomic, metabolomic, lipidomic) is important.

The Department of Microbiology, Biochemistry, and Immunology (MBI) has a national and international network allowing a wide array of, and ample opportunities for collaboration in multiple research areas. These areas include immunology, drug development, genomics, complementary & integrative health, natural product-based research, and infectious diseases including virology, protozoology, and bacteriology. MSM has renovated core facilities providing both basic shared-use equipment as well as specialized services such as microparticle analysis, zebra fish development, and advanced imaging facilities.

Faculty members have additional access to core facilities as part of: (I) The Georgia Clinical Translational Science Academy (https: // georgiactsa.org/)

(II) The Georgia Core Facilities Partnership, which links many intensive research institutions across Georgia allowing access across the partnership to their core facilities

(III) The RCMI Translational Research Network (https: // www. rtrn.net/) which is a collaborative organization of 18 minority serving institutions across the US. These resources obviously contribute to the outstanding research environment and provide a wide range of opportunities for collaborative research within MSM, and our regional partners.

The initial faculty appointment will be for a period of twelve (12) months with the possibility of renewal.
