The Department of Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech seeks to expand our expertise in evolution by hiring a tenure-track EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGIST at the assistant professor level starting in the Fall 2017 semester. We are seeking a broadly trained colleague with diverse interests whose work focuses on the genetic and/or ecological basis of evolutionary change. Potential research interests include, but are not limited to, microevolutionary processes in natural populations, evolutionary response to global change, molecular evolution, and the evolution of species interactions. The successful candidate's research may complement existing strengths in our department including disease ecology, microbial ecology, behavioral biology, and integrated organismal biology and may take advantage of shared resources such as the Massey Herbarium. Opportunities to work with university-level programs such as the Global Change Center and Interfaces of Global Change graduate program are available.
