Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor: Evolutionary Developmental Biology

The Section of Ecology, Behavior and Evolution in the Division of Biological Sciences (www.biology.ucsd.edu) invites applications for a faculty position at the tenure-track Assistant Professor or tenured Associate or Full Professor level. Competitive candidates will investigate evolutionary questions through mechanistic studies of the developmental or physiological processes that produce phenotypic variation. Research topics could include, but are not limited to: evolutionary innovation; developmental constraints; phenotypic plasticity and genetic accommodation; and the evolution of genotype-phenotype maps. We welcome applicants incorporating laboratory, field, and/or theoretical components in their research. 

The Division of Biological Sciences at UCSD is a vibrant center of scientific discovery, innovation, and collaboration. Our large research base spans many areas of biology and has one of the most celebrated graduate programs in the country. We are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.

All candidates must have earned a Ph.D. or equivalent degree, and be committed to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Associate and Full Professor candidates must possess strong leadership skills. In addition to excellence and creativity in research and scholarship, successful candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion in higher education. We are especially interested in candidates who have created or contributed to programs that aim to increase access and success of underrepresented students and/or faculty in the sciences, and/or have detailed plans to accomplish such goals.
