Assistant Professor position, Evolutionary Genetics/Genomics (USA)


The Department of Biology at San Diego State University invites applications for a tenure track
Assistant Professor, beginning in Fall 2014. We seek a creative, productive evolutionary biologist
with research strengths in eukaryotic genomics or genetics. We are especially interested in
candidates who use innovative experimental, computational and/or comparative approaches.
Research area is open to studies of all eukaryotic organisms. Areas of interests include, but are not
limited to: comparative genomics, evolutionary genetics, genetic variation and natural selection in
natural and model systems, experimental evolution, mechanisms of evolution, and quantitative
genetics. Research area is open to studies of eukaryotic organisms either above or below the species
level. Preference will be given to those candidates with a central focus in evolutionary biology who
also clearly demonstrate cross-disciplinary research programs.

The position is open at the Assistant Professor level. Candidates should have a strong record of
research accomplishments and funding, post-doctoral experience, demonstrate the ability to
establish an active research program that will attract funding from federal agencies such as NSF and
NIH, and be committed to undergraduate as well as graduate teaching. Teaching will include
participation in our undergraduate Genetics and Evolutionary Biology curriculum, and additional
undergraduate and graduate courses in the candidate’s areas of expertise.

The successful candidate is expected to interact with a diverse student body and an active group of
biology faculty who have research programs in phylogenetic inference and biodiversity, population
genetics, molecular evolution, genomics, metagenomics, bioinformatics, cell biology, physiology,
developmental biology, microbiology, cardiovascular biology, marine ecology, conservation biology
and ecosystem studies/global change.

The Biology Department has MS and PhD programs in Evolutionary Biology, Cell and Molecular
Biology, and Ecology. The candidate is expected to be a core member of the Evolutionary Biology
graduate programs, but preference will be given to those that can also participate in additional
