Evolutionary Ecology and Evolutionary Theory

The Department of Biological Sciences and
The Roy J. Carver Center for Comparative Genomics at
The University of Iowa
Applications are invited for two tenure track positions; one at the Associate Professor level, and the second position at the Assistant Professor level. Successful candidates are expected to have an internationally visible research program that strives to understand the molecular basis of significant questions in evolutionary biology using either empirical or theoretical approaches.
In the area of Evolutionary Ecology, we are particularly interested in individuals whose research focuses on understanding the genetic basis of environmentally relevant phenotypic variation.
In the area of Evolutionary Theory, we are interested in individuals developing novel approaches to the analysis of evolutionary processes, ranging from population genetics to phylogenetics and especially at their interface. The Department is committed to expanding its internationally recognized program in evolution and comparative genomics. More about the department and the Center for Comparative Genomics may be found at <http://www.biology.uiowa.edu/ccg>.
Candidates should have post-doctoral experience and a recognized record of accomplishment as reflected in publications in leading journals. Successful candidates will be expected to establish and maintain an extramurally-funded research program. Recently renovated space and competitive start-up packages will be made available.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, statement of research objectives, selected reprints, a description of teaching interests, and the names of three references to: Evolutionary Search Committee, c/o Becky Birch, Department of Biological Sciences, 143 Biology Building, The University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa 52242-1324. Review of applications will begin October 1, 2004. The University of Iowa is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
