Job Advertisement- Faculty Position- Assistant Professor EVOLUTIONARY GENOMICS University of California Riverside

On behalf of Dr. Nunney Chair, Search Committee for Evolutionary Genomics
University of California Riverside

Dear Colleague:

I would like to call your attention to a faculty position that we seek to fill thisyear in Evolutionary Genomics for the Department of Biology in theCollege of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at the University ofCalifornia, Riverside This position is being recruited at the AssistantProfessor level. 

We seek a candidate who employs a comparative evolutionary approach in the study of genome architecture and its consequences for adaptive evolution.  The research should exploit the burgeoning ability to study genomes to tackle key problems in the genetics and evolution of fundamental biological processes, such as pathogenicity, disease resistance, physiological adaption, symbiosis, response to a changing environment, invasiveness, animal or plant domestication, productivity, behavior/signaling, stress/tolerance, speciation/extinction, or the evolution of the genome itself. 

Our ideal candidate should also be proficient at developing novel bioinformatics approaches to the comparative study of genomes and able to utilize techniques such as advanced statistical methods and computer-programming skills.  The successful candidate will join a vibrant community of researchers in the Department of Biology, the Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology Graduate Program, the Genetics, Genomics, and Bioinformatics Graduate Program, the Center for Conservation Biology, the Center for Invasive Species Research, the Institute for Integrative Genome Biology, and the Environmental Dynamics and GeoEcology Institute.  He/she will also have access to modern campus facilities in genomics/bioinformatics, proteomics, microscopy, stable isotope analysis, and field stations and facilities.  The candidate will advise graduate and undergraduate students and contribute to both graduate and undergraduate teaching in the programs of evolution, ecology and organismal biology.  A Ph.D. and a demonstrated excellence in research are required.
