Description

The Section of Ecology, Behavior & Evolution in the Division of Biological Sciences (www.biology.ucsd.edu) invites applications for a tenured faculty position at the Associate and Full Professor levels. Candidates must possess strong leadership skills. Competitive candidates will investigate evolutionary questions through mechanistic studies of the developmental or physiological processes that produce phenotypic variation. Research topics could include, but are not limited to: evolutionary innovation; developmental constraints; phenotypic plasticity and genetic accommodation; and the evolution of genotype-phenotype maps. We welcome applicants incorporating laboratory, field, and/or theoretical components in their research.

The Division of Biological Sciences at UCSD is a vibrant center of scientific discovery, innovation, and collaboration. Our large research base spans many areas of biology and has one of the most celebrated graduate programs in the country. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.

All candidates must have earned a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in Biology or a related field at the time of application, and be committed to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition to excellence and creativity in research and scholarship, successful candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion in higher education. We are especially interested in candidates who have created or contributed to programs that aim to increase access and success of underrepresented students or faculty in the sciences, or have detailed plans to accomplish such goals.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on University of California pay scales.

Completed applications received by October 28, 2019 will be assured of consideration.
