The Department of Biological Sciences at Ohio University (https://www.ohio.edu/cas/biosci/
) invites applications for a nine-month, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor with an expected start date of August 2023. We are interested in candidates who use integrative approaches (experimental, comparative, or computational) to study organismal and ecosystem responses to habitat loss, urbanization, pollution, or climate change.
Preference will be given to candidates whose research evaluates how organisms adapt to changing environments and applies integrative approaches to assess how eco-physiological processes, eco-evolutionary dynamics, population dynamics, or interspecific interactions (e.g., host-parasite, host-microbe, predator-prey, disease dynamics) are affected by environmental change.
Candidates will be expected to establish an innovative, extramurally funded research program. We seek applicants whose research interests complement and extend our departmental strengths in evolution and ecology, organismal biology, physiology, and molecular biology and who can collaborate with faculty in a broad-based Biological Sciences Department. Faculty members in the department teach and mentor undergraduate, MSc, and PhD students. Depending on the candidate’s research area, teaching for this position will include Conservation Biology and two additional courses that fill departmental teaching needs.
Candidates should provide evidence of research excellence demonstrated by a record of extramural support and publications in relevant journals and a research statement that outlines an innovative, forward-looking research program. Post-doctoral and teaching experience is desirable.
