Tenure-Track Faculty Positions

The Department of Biological Sciences of Wright State University invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at the level of ASSISTANT or ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR . We anticipate hiring 5-7 new faculty over the next 3 years. Successful candidates must have a doctorate by time of appointment and sufficient research experience to establish and maintain an independent, extramurally funded research program. Positions available include:
o Bioeducator: The successful candidate will share a joint appointment between the College of Science and Mathematics
(two-thirds) and the College of Education (one-third).
Teaching efforts will be directed at training pre-service
early and middle childhood teachers and research into
science education. The candidate will interact with other science educators who are contributing to WSU's unique interdisciplinary effort to enhance the teaching of science. A Ph. D or Ed. D and either a graduate degree in Biological Sciences or two years related experience in a biological field is required. Experience teaching at the pre-college level is preferred.
o Cell/Molecular Biologist: Preference will be given to candidates with research expertise in immunology, virology, neurobiology, signal transduction, bioinformatics/computational biology, or microscopy: Opportunities for departmental collaboration include current faculty research on cell cycle regulation, cytoskeletal dynamics, immune and inflammatory mechanisms, bioinformatics, molecular evolution, and microbiology.
o Ecologist/Environmental Scientist: Preference will be
given to candidates with expertise in fish ecology, toxicology/toxicogenomics, or whose research interests bridge multiple scales (metapopulations, ecosystems, landscapes). Opportunities for departmental collaboration include current faculty research in aquatic biology, plant/woodland ecology, ecotoxicology, and environmental risk assessment.
o Invertebrate Biologist: The successful candidate should specialize in zoology, ecology, or evolution. Opportunities for departmental collaboration include current faculty research in plant-herbivore interactions, parasitology, aquatic biology, evolution, development, and comparative physiology.
o Organismal/Exercise Physiologist: The successful candidate will augment departmental research programs studying comparative animal, exercise, and plant physiology. Approaches from molecular to organismal are welcome. Candidates interested in being involved with the Exercise Biology program are encouraged to apply.
Competitive start-up packages will be tailored to the
specific needs of successful candidates. Instructional responsibilities will include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in the area of specialization and mentoring graduate students participating in the BioMedical Sciences Ph.D. program, the Environmental Sciences Ph.D. program, the Biological Sciences M.S. program and/or the Microbiology and Immunology M.S. program. Applications from couples who have independent research programs are invited.
WSU is a major metropolitan university with more than 16,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Biological research facilities/resources at WSU include a Genomics Core Facility; a modern animal care facility; a newly constructed green house; and on-campus wooded Biology Preserve. The department graduates approximately 150 students per year in programs that include general Biology, Clinical Laboratory Sciences, Exercise Biology and Environmental Health.
The Department of Biological Sciences and the College of Science and Mathematics are committed to initiatives that include under-represented groups in undergraduate and graduate education. It is hoped that one or more successful candidates will be able to recruit minority students to these initiatives.
Appointment at the Associate level will require meeting the criteria in the Department Bylaws. More information on WSU, the Department of Biological Sciences, its Graduate Programs, and this job search can be found at http://biology.wright.edu/dept/jobs04.html .
Send a curriculum vitae , statement of research and teaching interests, and names and contact information for three references to Chair of the Search Committee, Department of Biological Sciences, Wright State University , Dayton , OH 45435-0001 .
