The University of Florida
In 1853, the
state-funded East Florida Seminary took over the Kingsbury Academy in Ocala.
The seminary moved to Gainesville in the 1860s and later was consolidated
with the state's land-grant Florida Agricultural College, then in Lake City.
In 1905, by legislative action, the college became a university and was moved
to Gainesville. Classes first met with 102 students on the present site on
Sept. 26, 1906. UF officially opened its doors to women in 1947. With more
than 51,000 students, UF is now one of the five largest universities in the
UF has a 2,000-acre campus and more than 900 buildings (including 170 with classrooms and laboratories). The northeast corner of campus is listed as a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. The UF residence halls have a total capacity of some 7,500 students and the five family housing villages house more than 1,000 married and graduate students.
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. or comparable advanced degree and a significant record of accomplishment in an academic or related setting. The person in this position will be expected to maintain a productive, interdisciplinary, nationally- and internationally-recognized research program in foodborne diseases, with a focus on emerging pathogens.
