Description

The Sections of Ecology, Behavior & Evolution and Neurobiology in the Division of Biological Sciences (www.biology.ucsd.edu) invite applications for a faculty position in neuroethology at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level. Candidates who use cutting edge molecular and neural approaches to investigate the neural bases of animal behavior in whole organisms with a strong focus on the natural ecological or evolutionary context of these behaviors are encouraged to apply. Researchers who combine field and lab-based organismal approaches would be an excellent fit. This position will complement existing strengths within the Division of Biological Sciences at UCSD.

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.
