Assistant Professor of Ecology, Evolution, or Environmental Change

The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor who will enhance existing excellence in ecology, evolution, and environmental change. We are searching broadly for creative and collaborative individuals who are: (1) working at any spatial scale, from local to global, (2) studying any level of biological organization, from genes to ecosystems, and (3) using any mode of inference, from empirical to theoretical. Applicants should demonstrate research excellence that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries; ongoing growth in the department will emphasize new hires who use quantitative and/or integrative approaches to study biological processes. Successful candidates will benefit from Notre Dame’s 3000-ha field station, which is home to NEON’s Great Lakes domain (http://underc.nd.edu/), superb on-campus analytical facilities (e.g., http://cest.nd.edu/, http://genomics.nd.edu/), cross-disciplinary interaction through the Notre Dame’s Environmental Change Initiative (http://environmentalchange.nd.edu/), exceptional computational resources (https://crc.nd.edu/), and a unique Interdisciplinary Graduate Training Program in Environment and Society (http://reilly.nd.edu/graduate-programs/globes-certificate/).

Successful candidates will be expected to lead a strong, extramurally-funded research program, contribute to Notre Dame’s exemplary teaching program, engage students in research, and participate in a dynamic and integrative departmental culture. For additional information on our outstanding programs and facilities, see http://biology.nd.edu/. Positions include a competitive salary, generous start-up package, and laboratory space tailored to the applicant’s needs. 

Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply by submitting: 1) a cover letter including the names of three referees, 2) curriculum vitae, and 3) brief statements of research interests and teaching philosophy through the Interfolio/Notre Dame online application system: http://apply.interfolio.com/78904. The search committee will begin consideration of applications on October 23, 2020, but the position will remain open until it is filled. 

The University of Notre Dame, an international Catholic research university, is committed to building a culturally diverse and inclusive community. We strongly encourage applications from female and minority candidates. For more information contact the search chair, Dr. Beth Archie at earchie@nd.edu.
