The Department of Biological Sciences (DBS) at Texas Tech University (TTU) invites applications for a tenure-track Behavioral Endocrinologist to begin in Fall 2022. We seek a dynamic, motivated scientist to lead an innovative research program that draws from physiological, biochemical, and/or molecular approaches to address important questions in behavioral endocrinology. A focus on stress endocrinology is preferred but applications from any field of behavioral endocrinology will be considered. The candidate should have a Ph.D. in Biology or a related field and will be expected to establish a nationally recognized research program and obtain grants from competitive funding sources. The candidate is expected to teach in the Anatomy and Physiology rotation and develop new courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in their area of interest. Service duties include program-building as well as commitment to extra-curricular activities. Service to the department, college, and university levels commensurate with career stage is also expected. Post-doctoral experience and a strong record of peer-reviewed publications in behavior and endocrinology are required. Candidates who have very strong records of scholarship supported by extramural funding and who have the proven capacity or clear potential to bring externally sponsored research to Texas Tech University are encouraged to apply. Preferred candidates will also have demonstrated potential for teaching excellence in both large and online classes. Experience working with diverse student populations and first-generation students is highly desirable.
