Job Advertisement Assistant Professor at UC Riverside

I call your attention to the enclosed description for a faculty position in “Community Ecology” for the Department of Biology in the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. This position is being recruited at the Assistant Professor level. We are seeking candidates who develop an innovative empirical research program emphasizing the relationships between interacting species and their environment as part of the UCR Strategic Planning Vision in Renewable Nature: Environment, Energy, and Sustainable Development. Examples of research focus include (but are not limited to) the functional ecology of communities, community structure and assembly, consumer-resource dynamics, evolutionary ecology of communities, including ecological genetics, and responses of communities to stressors such as climate change and invasive species using an integrative array of techniques such as GIS, sensors, molecular biology and genomics/bioinformatics. The candidate should have a strong field component to their research and expertise in advanced statistical techniques. The successful candidate will join a vibrant community of researchers in the Department of Biology, The Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology Graduate Program, the Center for Conservation Biology, the Center for Invasive Species Research, the Institute for Integrative Genome Biology, and have access to modern campus facilities in bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics, microscopy, stable isotope analysis, geographic information systems, ecological sensing technologies and a diverse range of field stations and facilities. The candidate is also expected to contribute to teaching in undergraduate and graduate programs in the Department of Biology.
The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.

COMMUNITY ECOLOGY

University of California, Riverside

The Department of Biology invites applications for a 9-month tenure-track faculty position in the area

of Community Ecology, starting July 1, 2016. We are searching for an empirical ecologist who studies

relationships between interacting species and their environment as part of the UCR Strategic Planning

Vision in Renewable Nature: Environment, Energy, and Sustainable Development. Examples of

research focus could include (but are not limited to) the functional ecology of communities, community

assembly, consumer-resource dynamics, evolutionary ecology (including ecological genetics and

genomics), interactions between ecology and evolution, and responses of communities to stressors such

as climate change and invasive species using an integrative array of techniques such as GIS, sensors,

molecular biology and genomics/bioinformatics. The ideal candidate will have a strong field

component to their research and expertise in advanced statistical techniques. The successful candidate

will join a vibrant community of researchers in the Department of Biology, The Ecology, Evolution and

Organismal Biology Graduate Program, the Center for Conservation Biology, the Center for Invasive

Species Research, the Institute for Integrative Genome Biology, and have access to modern campus

facilities in bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics, microscopy, stable isotope analysis, geographic

information systems, ecological sensing technologies and field stations and facilities. Consult

www.biology.ucr.edu for details about the department. Applicants will be expected to pursue

vigorously extramurally-funded research and contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching. A

Ph.D. and demonstrated excellence in research are required.

Applications, including a curriculum vitae, separate statements of research and teaching interests, and

up to three selected reprints must be submitted through: https://aprecruit.ucr.edu. In addition, applicants

should request that three letters of recommendation be submitted through this site.

Evaluation of applications will begin November 1, 2015 and priority will be given to applications that
