The University of South Florida (USF) Morsani College of Medicine (MCOM) is launching a call for the recruitment of high-level scientists in the field of Virology.


USF has recently developed a very ambitious and bold strategic plan to become a premiere institution of higher research and learning. For example, USF has recently ranked in the top 50 nationally for research expenditures among all US universities.  USF has also recently ranked 15th worldwide among universities receiving US patents. Additionally, the Carnegie Foundation has designated USF in the top tier of research universities – Highest Research Activity. Finally, USF recently joined the ranks of just two other Florida institutions with its designation as a Preeminent State Research University.


Under the leadership of Christian Bréchot, MD, PhD, former president of the Institut Pasteur, USF Health offers positions at both the Associate and full Professor Levels in in the field of Virology. We include in this call expertise in the area of arboviruses. We wish to favor interdisciplinary research as well as epidemiology and entomology.
