Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor: Neuroethology

The Sections of Ecology, Behavior & Evolution and Neurobiology in the Division of Biological Sciences (www.biology.ucsd.edu) invite applications for a faculty position in neuroethology at the tenure-track Assistant Professor or tenured Associate or Full Professor level. Candidates must possess strong leadership skills. Candidates who use cutting edge molecular and neural approaches to investigate the neural bases of animal behavior in whole organisms with a strong focus on the natural ecological or evolutionary context of these behaviors are encouraged to apply. Researchers who combine field and lab-based organismal approaches would be an excellent fit. This position will complement existing strengths within the Division of Biological Sciences at UCSD.

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.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on University of California pay scales.

Initial review of applications will commence on October 28, 2019 and will continue until position is filled.

Interested applicants must submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research, statement of teaching, a statement describing their past experience and leadership in fostering equity and diversity and/or their potential to make future contributions, and 3-5 publications. For information on preparing diversity statements and divisional initiatives to promote diversity, see: http://facultyequity.ucsd.edu/Faculty-Applicant-C2D-Info.asp and http://biology.ucsd.edu/diversity/index.html.
