The School of Biological Sciences at Illinois State University in Normal, IL (www.bio.illinoisstate.edu) invites applications for two tenure-track positions in ECOLOGY and MICROBIOLOGY at the level of Assistant Professor. The School of Biological Sciences comprises 25 faculty, approximately 60 graduate students (M.S. and Ph.D.), and over 600 undergraduate majors. It offers a collegial environment fostering collaboration among organismal biologists, cell and molecular biologists, physiologists, and neuroscientists.

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF ECOLOGY. We seek candidates who employ theoretical and/or empirical approaches in the laboratory or field at any level of organization: organismal, population, community, or ecosystem. The ability to teach a graduate-level course in Biostatistics would be an asset.

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF MICROBIOLOGY. We seek candidates whose research encompasses the broad field of microbiology, including but not limited to host-microbe interactions, microbial communities, or microbial genetics. The new faculty member will teach courses in Microbiology, Microbiology and Society, or related courses in the Molecular and Cellular Biology program, at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Successful candidates are expected to establish a rigorous, nationally recognized, extramurally funded research program. The new faculty members will participate in courses related to their discipline at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and mentor B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. students in their research groups. A Ph.D. in the discipline or related field and post-doctoral research are required.
