Job Description

The Division of Laboratory Medicine in the Department of Pathology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is recruiting an exceptional MD, PhD, or MD/PhD researcher with a record of extramural funding focused on high containment BSL-3 pathogens. We strongly encourage applicants with NIH funding at the level of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor who have demonstrated exceptional research success to apply. Selected applicants must be able to work in a team environment and will join a diverse and vibrant academic community that values and is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

At UAB, BSL-3 research faculty are extremely well positioned to utilize this cutting-edge infrastructure to make significant and timely contributions to the development of medical countermeasures for emerging threats. This includes a clear path through the Division of Laboratory Medicine to implement diagnostic tests for patient care in CLIA/CAP-accredited clinical and public health laboratories. It also includes key partners to collaborate and drive BSL-3 vaccine development, drug discovery, development, and commercialization including Southern Research and the UAB Bill L. Harbert Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. UAB's top tier clinical research infrastructure, including the Alabama Vaccine Research Clinic, also enables key partnerships to safely and effectively evaluate the performance of novel medical countermeasures in phase I-III trials.

At the heart of UAB's urban campus, BSL-3 research faculty also benefit from a large and collaborative microbiology and immunology research community spanning multiple Departments including Pathology, Microbiology, Anesthesiology, Pulmonary Medicine, and Infectious Diseases. The Mary Heersink Institute for Global Health enables access to established research collaborations throughout the world. The Immunology Institute provides a solid research infrastructure, including weekly microbiology and immunology research seminar series and pilot grants. BSL-3 research faculty also benefit from SEBLAB's critical role within the NIAID NBL/RBL network, enabling access to annual meetings, research seminars, and specialized training sessions. SEBLAB coordinates a monthly high containment research seminar series to stay up to date on the latest research, novel technologies, biosafety, and other aspects critical to high containment research productivity. Opportunities to teach and train students exist throughout the UAB academic enterprise including the School of Medicine and the SOM Graduate Biomedical Sciences program.
