Texas Tech University (TTU) and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (HSC) have collaborated to form a new Institute of Comparative and Experimental Medicine (ICEM). This new Institute will support the One Health National Initiative to study and provide solutions to human and animal health concerns. The institute will recruit a number of new faculty, assign and remodel new space suited to this line of research, and provide competitive start up funds in areas of comparative medicine including, but not limited to:

  • Infectious disease, vaccine development, immunology, or allergy

  • Diabetes and Obesity
  • Neuroscience
  • Imaging and Image Processing
  • Addiction
  • Cancer
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Genomics and Metabolomics
  • Bioinformatics, Modeling and Advanced Biomedical Computing
  • Basic, translational and clinical studies

Collaboration with existing and newly-hired ICEM faculty members in both computational and experimental research and interaction in a team environment is expected. Funds are available to remodel and equip shell space in our Experimental Sciences Building (ESB) for faculty who will be affiliated with TTU. Opportunities exist to collaborate on human clinical studies in the Texas Tech System.  New faculty hires will have current competitive grant funding and a distinguished record of research productivity.  Graduate teaching and advising is expected in areas of interest to the faculty.  Service to the institutions and the profession are important aspects of successful faculty candidates. The primary appointment may be in any academic department at either institution. The level of academic appointment is open to all ranks though there is a preference for positions at the Associate/Full Professor level.
