The Davidson College Biology Department invites applications for a tenure-track position in quantitative integrative biology at the assistant professor level. The position will begin July 01, 2018. We seek a biologist who addresses research questions at the organismal level using contemporary statistical, molecular, cellular, genetic, and/or computational tools with demonstrated potential for excellence in undergraduate education. The new faculty member will teach in rotation: a cutting edge organismal-level course (with lab) that conceptually and methodologically goes both above and below the organismal level, biostatistics (BIO240), the organismal-ecosystem half of introductory biology (BIO112/114), and an additional course in the candidate's areas of expertise.
A PhD in biology or a related field is required, with postdoctoral research and teaching experience strongly preferred. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an active research program capable of attracting external funding and producing peer-reviewed publications with undergraduate co-authors. Start-up funds and dedicated research lab space in a new interdisciplinary science building designed to promote innovative teaching and collaboration among STEM fields will be provided.
