TWO TENURE-TRACK FACULTY POSITIONS
1) Genomics and 2) Evolutionary Biology
The Department of Biology at Saint Louis University, a Catholic, Jesuit institution dedicated to student learning, research, health, and service, is seeking applicants for two tenure-track faculty positions: One in Genomics and one in Evolutionary Biology. Competitive applicants will have a Ph.D., postdoctoral experience, a record of research productivity, and a commitment to undergraduate and graduate student training (M.S. and Ph.D. Students). The successful candidates will be expected to establish independent, extramurally funded research programs and participate in graduate training.
For the Genomics position, we seek candidates whose research addresses biological questions using the analysis of large data sets; the specific area of research is open. Both wet laboratory and high-performance computing facilities are available and will be matched to the candidate's needs. The successful candidate will teach a genomics course at the graduate level and contribute to an undergraduate course for biology majors.
For the Evolutionary Biology position, possible areas of research inquiry include, but are not limited to, development, ecology, physiology, functional morphology and biomechanics, behavior, and host/pathogen interactions. Both wet laboratory and high performance computing facilities are available and will be matched to the candidate's needs. The successful candidate will teach an evolution course at the graduate level and contribute to an undergraduate course for biology majors.
Excellent facilities and competitive startup packages are provided, and abundant opportunities exist to develop collaborative projects with Saint Louis University researchers and with scientists and educators at the nearby Missouri Botanical Garden, Danforth Plant Science Center, St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Science Center, and local universities.
All applications should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three representative publications, a research statement, and a statement of teaching experience and philosophy. In addition, please have three letters of reference sent to: Dr. Robert Wood, Department of Biology, Saint Louis University, 3507 Laclede Avenue, St. Louis, MO, 63103. Review of applications has begun and will continue until the position is filled. Additional information on the Department of Biology can be found at website: www.slu.edu/x14762.xml.
