Faculty Position in Experimental Behavioral Biology

University of Minnesota--Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior--
The Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior invites applications for a faculty position in experimental behavioral biology. The expected appointment is at the Assistant Professor level, but Associate Professors will also be considered. The successful candidate will have expertise in experimental approaches that address key questions in behavioral ecology; interests that bridge the gap between evolutionary and mechanistic studies of behavior; and demonstrated potential to build collaborative connections with other departments (such as entomology, fisheries and wildlife,
neuroscience and psychology). Candidates working in any area of
behavioral ecology will be considered, but expertise in animal communication, reproductive behavior, or social behavior is especially welcome. The successful candidate will develop an innovative, extramurally funded research program. In addition, the successful candidate will teach an undergraduate course in introductory animal behavior, and develop a more advanced course in his or her area of expertise. A Ph.D. is required and postdoctoral experience is preferred. The Department of EEB is a dynamic, nationally and internationally recognized group of 29 faculty mentoring nearly 100 graduate students and postdocs. Faculty research encompasses ecology, evolution, and behavior with strengths in integrative, interdisciplinary studies. For more information about the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, please visit our web site at http://www.cbs.umn.edu/eeb/. The University of Minnesota is a large, metropolitan institution with excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary research with faculty from the Medical and Veterinary Schools, College of Natural Resources, College of Agriculture, Food and the Environment, Institute of Technology, and the Microbial and Plant Genomics Center.
