3 tenure track positions in ecology (U Michigan, USA)

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan seeks applicants for three assistant professor (tenure-track) positions in ecology. These are university-year  appointments with an expected start date of September 1, 2017.

1. Ecosystem ecologist. We welcome applicants who study ecosystem processes
in any of the planet’s major ecosystems, including aquatic, terrestrial,
wild-land, managed and urban ecosystems. We are especially interested in
individuals who include field and experimental approaches in their research.
Areas of interest include, amongst others, biogeochemistry, carbon
sequestration, and the effects of environmental change on ecosystem pools
and fluxes.

2. Population/community ecologist. We welcome applicants who study processes
in any ecosystem or habitat type, including managed and urban systems. We
also encourage individuals interested in interdisciplinary research. Areas
of interest include, amongst others, mechanisms of population regulation;
causes of species extinctions; and maintenance of biodiversity, community
structure and ecosystem function under environmental change. Ideally,
candidates will have an empirical research program that bridges to
ecological theory.

3. Theoretical ecologist. We seek applicants who bring cutting-edge
theoretical, mathematical, and computational tools to the study of
ecological systems of any kind, including traditional fields such as
population dynamics and community assembly as well as emerging
subdisciplines such as urban ecology, macroecology, microbial ecology,
disease ecology and eco-immunology. Applicants with inter- and
trans-disciplinary interests and who integrate theoretical development with
empirical tests, whether alone or in collaboration, are especially
encouraged to apply. This position will be a joint appointment with the
University of Michigan Center for the Study of Complex Systems.

For all three positions, we are especially interested in individuals who
will leverage the facilities available at the University of Michigan,
including world class biodiversity collections, a local field research
facility (the Edwin S. George Reserve), and a large educational and research
facility in northern Michigan (the University of Michigan Biological Station).

EEB is committed to fostering ethnic and gender diversity throughout the
department, and is especially interested in candidates contributing to the
diversity and excellence of our academic community through their teaching,
research, and/or service. Review of applications will begin on September 1,
2016 (Ecosystem Ecologist), September 15, 2016 (Population/Community
Ecologist), and October 1, 2016 (Theoretical Ecologist) and will continue
until the positions are filled.

Women and minorities are encouraged to apply and the University is
supportive of the needs of dual career couples. The University of Michigan
is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
