Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Bozeman, Montana offers a healthy lifestyle and a world class research university that facilitates innovation and scholarship. The Department of Microbiology & Cell Biology at Montana State University (MSU) invites applications for three tenure track faculty positions in the field of Neuroimmunology. This cluster hire aims to attract a diverse cohort of exceptional individuals that will establish nationally recognized, and externally funded research programs that use innovative new methods to interrogate dynamic interactions at the interface of Neurology and Immunology. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, fundamental and applied biology, immunology, neurology, pathology, psychiatry, parasitology, aging, structural biology, and virology.

We are particularly interested in individuals whose work complements and strengthens the research interests of MSU faculty, including those focused on neurology, developmental biology, immunology, microbial physiology and ecology, molecular evolution, virology, biomedical microbiology, environmental health, structural biology, and host-pathogen interactions. The Department of Microbiology & Cell Biology offers a dynamic research and teaching environment with state-of-the-art facilities for infectious disease (e.g., BSL3), flow cytometry, light and cryo-electron microscopy, histology, and small and large animal research. The University supports comprehensive cores in metabolomics, proteomics, imaging, structural biology, and genomics/bioinformatics. This position is supported by a competitive institutional salary, a generous start-up package, and state-of-the-art research facilities.
