The Microbiology Program in the Indiana University Department of Biology (https://biology.indiana.edu/graduate/microbiology/index.html) invites applications for a tenured/tenure-track position in Virology at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. We are particularly interested in scientists studying emerging viruses. We encourage applications from candidates focused on the following areas of research: structure-function analysis of viral proteins, cell and molecular biology of events in viral replication, cellular responses to virus infection, and experimental approaches to virus evolution.
