Job Description

Screening of applicants will begin January 7, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.

The University of Washington Tacoma invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Microbiology in the Division of Sciences and Mathematics within the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences (SIAS). We seek an individual that shares our institutional values of excellence, community, diversity, innovation and access. This is a full-time position with a nine-month service period.

The successful candidate will be an integral member of a small, cohesive group of faculty, and will support and coordinate development of our growing B.S. in Biomedical Sciences. The position begins September 15, 2019. This position requires an earned doctorate (or foreign equivalent) in microbiology or related field at the time of appointment, and is contingent on funding. Candidates in the final stages of their dissertation may be appointed on an acting basis.

The Tacoma campus of the University of Washington was established in 1990 with an interdisciplinary approach to education at its foundation. It has evolved into a thriving downtown campus that serves students with a wide range of ages and backgrounds from the South Puget Sound region. Faculty have access to the resources of a major research university, including the extensive UW library system, but work and teach within a small campus setting. Our campus provides a unique environment for the development of creative teaching, research and community collaborations. The campus commitment to diversity is central to maintaining an atmosphere where students, staff, and faculty find abundant opportunities for intellectual, personal and professional growth within our campus and broader community.
