Assistant Professor - Evolutionary Developmental Biology
The Section of Cell & Developmental Biology in the Division of Biological Sciences (www.biology.ucsd.edu) invites applications for a faculty position in Evolutionary Developmental Biology at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level. Competitive candidates will have an overarching interest in applying a variety of methodologies to identify the mechanistic connections between genotype and phenotype that underlie differences between species. Priority will be given to those who exhibit curiosity about how the evolution of genes and their regulatory mechanisms influences organismal and cellular form and function. No specific biological system (plant, vertebrate, invertebrate) is sought as the focus of the candidate's research program; all are welcome.
All candidates must have earned a Ph.D. or equivalent degree, and be committed to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition to excellence and creativity in research and scholarship, successful candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion in higher education. We are especially interested in candidates who have created or contributed to programs that aim to increase access and success of underrepresented students and/or faculty in the sciences, and/or have detailed plans to accomplish such goals.
The Division of Biological Sciences at UCSD is a vibrant center of scientific discovery, innovation, and collaboration. Our large research base spans many areas of biology and has one of the most celebrated graduate programs in the country. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.
Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on University of California pay scales.
Initial review of applications will commence on October 23, 2017 and will continue until position is filled.
