Open academic position at The Faculty of Medicine at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem
The faculty of Medicine of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem wishes to recruit a virologist at a level of assistant or associate professor (tenure track) or full professor (tenure), for the 2022-2023 academic year.
Considering the great challenges of viral epidemics, the Hebrew University and Faculty of Medicine decided to give virology research a high priority and built a modern infrastructure for virus research, including a State-of-the-art high biosafety facility for cell and animal research (BSL3 and ABSL3 laboratories). The appointed faculty member is expected to serve as the director of this new facility. In addition, she/he will be provided with laboratory space and a competitive start-up package.
Candidates holding MD, PhD or both degrees who run highly competitive research programs in the field of virology are encouraged to apply. Physician-researchers, who wish to have a combined clinical and laboratory research career are also very welcome.
We are looking for candidates that have a profound knowledge, broad view, and proven achievements in virology research, which can build and lead an independent research group and are committed to mentor students at all levels within the learning programs of the School of Medicine.
The first screening will be held in the School of Pharmacy and in the Faculty's Search Committee. The Faculty's Search Committee will select a short list of applicants that will be invited for an interview at the faculty.
