Colorado State University announces a cluster hire to complement and extend ongoing microbiome systems research at CSU and enhance our dynamic, interactive and collaborative microbiome community.  In the first of two hiring rounds, we are seeking three tenure-track faculty focused on understanding the functional and structural basis of microbiomes, and their ecological relevance and applications to human, animal, plant and soil biology and environmental systems.  Departments within the College of Agricultural Sciences and Warner College of Natural Resources are recruiting applicants in the following areas:  microbiome evolution, adaptation, and community composition and function, in environmental and/or agricultural plant ecosystems, or in agricultural animal systems.

Applicants may apply to any of the three positions, but must apply to each one that interests him/her by the full consideration deadline of February 28, 2016.
