OSU CVM is hiring multiple virologists

The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine invites applications for multiple research-intensive tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in emerging and re-emerging viruses that expand and build upon our programmatic strengths, expertise, assets and impact. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to virus-host interactions, animal models, ecology, immunology, genetics and evolution, structural biology, and zoonotic transmission. Successful candidates will join a highly interactive virology and infectious disease research community on campus that is an integral part of the university’s Infectious Disease Institute, including the Center for Retrovirus Research, Center of Microbiome Science, and a newly NIH-funded center, STOP-COVID. These positions are part of the university’s new initiatives on research for academic excellence. The College of Veterinary Medicine has a long and outstanding history of research excellence in Signature Programs, including research focus areas in infectious diseases, comparative oncology, neuromusculoskeletal sciences, molecular virology, epidemiology, and vaccine development.
