Assistant or Associate Professor Haines Above Ground
The Department of Plant Biology invites applications from outstanding candidates for a tenure track faculty position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level. The position will have available research funds from a Haines Family Professorship endowment. This search is open to candidates wishing to pursue fundamental questions in plant ecology within an evolutionary context, with an emphasis on above ground processes. Areas of specialization can include, but are not limited to, climate induced stress responses to biotic and/or abiotic factors, carbon budgets, plant-pollinator interactions, invasion and/or conservation biology. Field-based research should be integrated with other analytical tools (e.g. molecular, genomic, modeling, theoretical, and/or computational approaches). The successful candidate will be expected to establish a high-impact, externally funded research program and contribute to classroom instruction and mentoring in the Department. A competitive salary and ample resources will be provided.
