Faculty Position- Assistant Professor in Evolutionary Genomics (USA)

University of California, Riverside

The Department of Biology invites applications for a 9-month tenure-track
faculty position in the area of Evolutionary Genomics, starting
July 1, 2015.  Candidates should employ a comparative evolutionary
approach in the study of genome architecture and its consequences
for adaptive evolution.
  The research should exploit the burgeoning
ability to study genomes to tackle key problems in the genetics and
evolution of fundamental biological processes, such as pathogenicity,
disease resistance, physiological adaption, symbiosis, response to
a changing environment, invasiveness, animal or plant domestication,
productivity, behavior/signaling, stress/tolerance, speciation/extinction,
or the evolution of the genome itself.  Ideally, the candidate will
be proficient at developing novel bioinformatics approaches to the
comparative study of genomes.  Researchers that utilize techniques
such as advanced statistical methods and computer-programming skills
are desired.  The successful candidate will join a vibrant community
of researchers in the Department of Biology, the Evolution, Ecology
and Organismal Biology Graduate Program, the Genetics, Genomics, and
Bioinformatics Graduate Program, the Center for Conservation Biology,
the Center for Invasive Species Research, the Institute for Integrative
Genome Biology, and the Environmental Dynamics and GeoEcology Institute.
The successful candidate will also have access to modern campus facilities
in genomics/bioinformatics, proteomics, microscopy, stable isotope
analysis, and field stations and facilities.  Consult www.biology.ucr.edu
for details about the department.  Applicants will be expected to pursue
vigorously extramurally-funded research and contribute to teaching in
our undergraduate and graduate core curricula.  A Ph.D. and demonstrated
excellence in research are required.

Applications, including a curriculum vitae, separate statements of
research and teaching interests, and up to three selected reprints must be
submitted through: https://aprecruit.ucr.edu/apply/JPF00182.  In addition,
applicants should request that three letters of recommendation be
submitted through this site.

Evaluation of applications will begin September 15, 2014, but the position
will remain open until filled.
