LAST CHANCE: Opportunity for Graduate Students to Conduct Public Health Microbiology Research at CDC.
DEADLINE: January 15th
For more information and application details, visit: ASM/CDC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
2011-2013 ASM/CDC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program
Up to ten fellowship positions will be awarded for full-time research in infectious diseases, which cause significant public health problems.
Fellows will perform research in residence at one of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) locations in Atlanta, GA; Ft. Collins, CO; Anchorage, AK; or San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame, in conjunction with the Eck Institute for Global Health (EIGH), expanding and actively recruiting for several open faculty positions (see below).
Assistant Professor of Disease Ecology
Assistant/Associate Professor of Epidemiology
Assistant Professor of Ecology
2 Assistant Professor positions in Cell Biology (Cancer, Stem Cell, Neurobiology)
Assistant/Associate Professor of Bioinformatics (Dept. of Computer Science)
The Department of Biological Sciences has existing programmatic strengths in infectious diseases, environmental biology, vector biology, aquatic ecology, conservation biology, and cell biology. The Department consists of 38 faculty and over 100 graduate students. The department houses state-of-the-art shared facilities for genomics, bioinformatics, and imaging analysis, BSL-3 containment laboratories, an AALAC-accredited animal facility, greenhouses and growth chambers. Extensive analytical chemistry facilities are housed on campus in the Center for Environmental Science and Technology (CEST). The Environmental Research Center (UNDERC) provides facilities, seed grants and graduate student support for field research in northern Wisconsin/U.P. Michigan and Montana, and is the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) core site for the upper Great Lakes region. The Center for Aquatic Conservation (CAC) provides support for studies that address conservation issues of the Great Lakes. The ecologists and evolutionary biologists within the department are strong in insect and plant biology and aquatic ecology. Their research spans population and genomic biology to geographical ecology and ecosystem science. This interdisciplinary group is externally funded by NSF, NSF-IGERT, DOE, USDA, EPA, NOAA, and other public and private agencies.
The Eck Institute for Global Health brings together a diverse group of faculty, staff, and students from several different Colleges and Departments at the University of Notre Dame whose research and teaching is focused on human pathogens and their invertebrate and vertebrate vectors, the diseases caused by these organisms, and the impact of these diseases on human society. EIGH faculty members have expertise in malaria, tuberculosis, and other intracellular pathogens as well as in vector transmission of parasites and vector genomics. Recently EIGH was awarded $10 million to expand our Genomics Facility and an additional endowment of $20 million to support EIGH faculty and programs. The institute faculty are extremely successful in acquiring extramural funding, securing nearly $50 million over the last 5 years, including funding from NIH, Gates Foundation, and DoD. Along with the Eck Institute, the University of Notre Dame also maintains a number of centers and institutes including the Center for Rare and Neglected Diseases, the Center for Applied Math and the Center for Research Computing.
The open faculty positions are supported with a competitive start up package and salary that can be supplemented with extramural funds. Notre Dame is located in South Bend, IN, in close association with the Indiana University School of Medicine. South Bend has a diverse economy with affordable housing and excellent school systems, and is within easy driving distance of Chicago and Lake Michigan.
