Purdue University's College of Engineering and College of Science have identified imaging as a major thrust for cross-disciplinary research and education and are accepting applications for tenured and tenure track faculty (Assistant and Associate Professor) in this area. Imaging research has become the key to progress in fields such as medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, earth and atmospheric science; and the resulting technologies are addressing major human needs in healthcare, medicine, security, manufacturing, and communication. Purdue University has embarked on a new "integrated-imaging" initiative to exploit the synergy between science and engineering, algorithms and devices, sensors and applications. This initiative will build on strengths and leverage the imaging capabilities of both Purdue Colleges and Purdue's Discovery and Research Parks.
The Department of Biological Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the area of Molecular Pathogenesis. Potential areas of research in bacterial or viral systems include: host-microbe interactions in animal or plant systems, structural basis and mechanisms of pathogenesis, systems biology of pathogenic organisms or trafficking of intracellular pathogens.
