The School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) and the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey seeks colleagues who share our passion to achieve a healthy and sustainable future through excellence in research, teaching, and outreach in metabolic health. Metabolic Health integrates the molecular and physiological underpinnings and environmental influences that together impact the sustainable wellbeing of humans, animals, and ecosystems. We seek to hire an interdisciplinary cluster of four tenure-track faculty colleagues whose scholarly interests and goals fit within the SEBS core areas of strength which span from microorganisms to ecosystems. Research areas of interest include gastrointestinal physiology, microbial metabolism, bio-functional food processing, and nutrition and metabolic health, though any area related to metabolic health will be considered. These tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty hires will affiliate with one of several academic departments: Animal Sciences, Biochemistry and Microbiology, Food Science, and Nutritional Sciences. Rutgers and SEBS are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (https://diversity.rutgers.edu). One of our main priorities is to diversify our faculty ranks to ensure our faculty composition reflects the diversity of our state and student population. We especially encourage applications from backgrounds underrepresented in sciences including Black, Latine, Indigenous, and LGBTQ+ scientists. Successful applicants will prioritize and align with our values of inclusivity, interdisciplinary excellence and scholarly relevance leading to innovative research programs, student success, and community engagement. Successful applicants will be competitive for external funding opportunities to establish an integrated research program and must be committed to teaching core and elective courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels and to mentoring research students at all degree levels.
