Assistant Professor - Integrative Biology

The Department of Biology and Marine Biology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Integrative Biology with an emphasis on Neuroscience beginning in August 2020. Desired areas of expertise within the broad umbrella of Neuroscience include, but are not limited to, Developmental Biology, Endocrinology, Cell and Molecular Biology, Immunology, and Comparative Physiology. Resources and facilities will support research from molecular to ecosystem levels of organization. The successful candidate will be expected to teach courses that support a growing emphasis in Human Biology (including a minor in Neuroscience), as well as to develop upper level courses related to his/her research expertise. Successful applicants also will be expected to maintain a vigorous, extramurally-funded research program involving graduate and undergraduate students. Candidates must have a Ph.D. and postdoctoral experience.

The department has an excellent record of faculty development and mentorship, and is committed to assisting new faculty to succeed. The department is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. Graduate curricula in the department include M.S. programs in Biology and Marine Biology, as well as a Ph.D. program in Marine Biology. Preference will be given to candidates able to complement existing disciplinary and interdisciplinary strengths and leverage departmental facilities. Excellent support for research is provided in departmental facilities on campus (http://www.uncw.edu/bio/) and at the CREST Research Park (http://uncw.edu/CREST/), including the Center for Marine Science, Shellfish Research Hatchery, and Marine Biotechnology Center.
