Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Microbiology

The School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) and the Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology at Rutgers University invites applicants for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level beginning Fall 2024. We seek a colleague who shares our passion to achieve a healthy and sustainable future through excellence in research, teaching, and outreach in evolution of microbial pathogens and/or antibiotic resistance. We are particularly interested in expanding our faculty to include a scholar and educator working on the environmental, physiological, biochemical, and/or genetic dimensions of antibiotic resistance, including factors driving the development and transfer of antibiotic resistance, or developing new solutions to these problems, including discovery and development of new antimicrobials or characterization of antimicrobial targets, though any aspect of evolutionary medicine in microbiology is of potential interest.  For more information about the position and to apply please see  If you have questions please contact the search committee chair Dr. Gerben Zylstra at any time.
