Job Description Summary

The successful candidate will be expected to 1) establish a competitive research program in diseases of poultry or cancer immunobiology that contributes to the research mission of the Department of Pathobiology and College of Veterinary Medicine, 2) provide research expertise to other faculty in the College of Veterinary Medicine, 3) support advanced training of veterinarians and graduate students in the candidate’s area of expertise.

Departmental and University research programs exist in diseases of poultry and poultry pathology, molecular virology and bacteriology, molecular diagnostics, food safety, pathogen detection, applied immunology, parasitology, platelet pathophysiology, molecular genetics, cancer biology/genetics, pathogenic mechanisms of infectious diseases, embryo-pathogen interactions, epidemiology, and neuropathology. Additional programs exist with opportunities for use of facilities and equipment, and/or collaboration within the College of Veterinary Medicine and with faculty from across Auburn University (including the College of Agriculture, Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, College of Science and Mathematics, Food Systems Institute, and Harrison School of Pharmacy). Diagnostic services include bacteriology and mycology, virology, anatomic and clinical pathology, parasitology, and molecular diagnostics. The department houses the University core lab in flow cytometry- FACS (including MoFlo XPD Flow Cytometer and high speed cell sorter, as well as a 6 laser 21 unique fluorescent color channel CytoFLEX LX flow cytometer and ACCURI C6 flow cytometer analyzers). Other University core facilities support advanced microscopy and imaging, laser microdissection, multispectral imaging, and in vivo imaging. In addition, through institutional collaboration with the Hudson-Alpha Institute for Biotechnology, a full array of genomic sequencing and functional genomic technologies is available.
