Assistant Professor Position in #Microbiology at UC Berkeley

Just got this ad — for a faculty position in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at UC Berkeley. Looks interesting. Though of course if you are really good in microbiology you should really consider applying for the open position at UC Davis in the same area.

See https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/apply/JPF00129/

And a PDF of the UC Davis ad:

Davis has some seriously amazing stuff going on in microbiology these days across diverse Departments and programs including

* a great Microbiology graduate group
https://myhs.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/web/microbiology-graduate-group/home

* critical mass of people enough to have an annual retreat in host-microbe interactions with >100 participants
http://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/medmicro/microbial%20affiliation/host_microbe_retreat_mr.html

* researchers focusing on microbial questions across many schools including the Medical School (e.g., the Med. Micro. and Immunology department http://www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/medmicro/ which I am part of) which just hosted a nice workshop on mucosal health
http://www.cevs.ucdavis.edu/confreg/?confid=651 and the Vet. School (e.g., http://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/pmi/) and the College of Biological Sciences (http://microbiology.ucdavis.edu)

I could go on and on … Microbiology is going bonkers at UC Davis …
