Assistant or early Associate Professor: Organismal Biology

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology invites applications for a tenure-track position in Organismal Biology. The ideal candidate in this broadly defined search will be an expert on the diversity and natural history of a particular taxonomic group of multicellular organisms, and use this expertise to address fundamental questions that help us understand organismal evolution and the traits and strategies that organisms display. The candidate could work within a variety of disciplines including evolutionary biology, development, physiology and/or ecology, but preference will be given to candidates who employ state-of-the-art mechanistic and experimental approaches in a phylogenetic and/or comparative context. Applicants should have a Ph.D. and preferably postdoctoral experience, demonstrated excellence in their field of organismal biology, a collaborative outlook and a dedication to undergraduate and graduate teaching.  

Candidates should submit via the website https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/14675: a short cover letter, curriculum vitae, contact information for three references, a research statement, a statement of teaching interests and experience, a statement of contribution to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and up to three representative publications. Inquiries can be directed to Search Committee Chair, Robert Reed, at orgbiosearch@cornell.edu.  

Review of applications will begin October 20, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.
