Tenure-Track Assistant Professorship in Animal Physiology

The Department of Biology at San Francisco State University offers an exciting opportunity for a Tenure-Track Assistant Professorship in Animal Physiology beginning August 2020. We seek to hire a new colleague whose research emphasizes comparative, environmental or ecological physiology in vertebrates or invertebrates, who addresses questions central to adaptations and responses to climate change, and who will synergize with existing Departmental faculty.  Applicants must demonstrate a successful history of research and strong potential for external support of their research, as the development of an externally funded research program is expected of new faculty hires.  The successful hire will contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching and mentorship of student research. Teaching responsibilities will include physiology courses for majors and non-majors. We are particularly interested in candidates who can teach a lower division human anatomy course for non-majors, as well as in candidates who have a demonstrated commitment to increase the access and success of underrepresented students in Biology, or who have detailed plans to accomplish such goals.  A Ph.D. is required and post-doctoral experience is strongly preferred. Salary commensurate with qualifications. Position description available at biology.sfsu.edu. Please submit the following materials online to Academic Jobs Online by 10/07/2019: 1) letter of intent/interest; 2) current CV; 3) a statement on how your teaching and scholarship align with the commitment of the Biology Department to foster an inclusive and diverse academic community; 4) teaching statement; 5) research statement; 6) representative sample of published papers; 7) contact information for three references (letters of recommendation will be requested as needed). Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
