Faculty position in Plant Physiological Ecology

The Department of Biology at Syracuse University seeks applicants for a tenure-track position in Plant Physiological Ecology at the assistant professor level. We seek outstanding candidates that take a physiological approach to plant function, with application to broad conceptual issues in ecology and evolution.
The successful candidate will join an interactive group of plant biologists with strengths in molecular biology, population genetics, species interactions, global change biology, and terrestrial biogeochemistry. The candidate is expected to develop a vigorous externally funded research program and participate in graduate and undergraduate teaching and mentoring in the areas of his or her expertise.
Candidates must have a PhD in a relevant area of biology and an outstanding record of research experience at the postdoctoral level. Competitive salary, start-up funds, and laboratory space will be provided. Department resources include modern greenhouse and growth chamber facilities, an experimental research garden, and a new Climate Change Garden education and outreach facility.
The Department of Biology also has strong research and education ties to the adjacent State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF). Located between the Adirondack Mountain, Finger Lakes, and Lake Ontario regions of upstate New York, the metropolitan area of Syracuse boasts myriad cultural and recreational opportunities and offers a wide array of urban, small town, and rural living.
For full consideration, applicants must complete an online application at www.sujobopps.com (#072736), including a cover letter, CV, research and teaching statements, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted at www.sujobopps.com. Review of applications will begin October 1, 2016. We especially encourage applications from women, individuals with disabilities, and military veterans and members of underrepresented groups, as well as international applicants. Syracuse University is an AA/EOE. Questions can be addressed to search chair Jason Fridley at fridley@syr.edu.
