UT Austin Cluster Hire in Integrative Biology

The Department of Integrative Biology at The University of Texas at Austin is initiating a cluster hire in support of our new Biodiversity Center. We are searching for three new faculty colleagues, two at the level of Assistant Professor and one at open rank. 


Open Rank in Ecology: The University of Texas at Austin is expanding from our original search at (https://apply.interfolio.com/43206) to also include a search for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position at the open rank level in the Department of Integrative Biology, in the area of ecology, broadly defined. Candidates should have a record of research that demonstrates originality in addressing fundamental topics in ecology, such as interactions across trophic levels, plant interactions with symbionts, herbivores, or mutualists, and/or the impacts of global change drivers on ecological interactions.

Assistant Professor in Integrative Biology: The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Integrative Biology. We wish to hire an exceptional candidate whose research focuses broadly on working on fundamental topics in behavior, evolution, and/or ecology. We especially encourage applicants that take an integrative approach to animal behavior, and will consider excellent applicants in any area. Study systems can include species or communities of any group of organisms. A PhD or equivalent is required at the time of appointment.


We are a vibrant and inclusive community, and we seek candidates who are interested in contributing to diversity and equal opportunity within higher education.
