    The University of Oregon Institute of Ecology and Evolution (http://ie2.uoregon.edu) and the Department of Biology invite applications for a tenure-track position (Assistant Professor) in ecology. Candidates should use computational and/or theoretical tools to address fundamental concepts in ecology using large and/or heterogeneous datasets. We are especially interested in candidates who build on the University of Oregon’s current strengths in terrestrial ecology, and who work across spatial and/or temporal scales. Successful candidates may work at or across a variety of ecological scales, including populations, communities, and ecosystems.

    This search is one of nearly a dozen associated with the Presidential Initiative in Data Science at the University of Oregon. This initiative spurs intentional growth in research and education using big data and cutting-edge analytics across the entire campus (see https://provost.uoregon). We are building a cross-disciplinary data science program on a foundation of strong interdisciplinary research and innovative education at a liberal arts research university. We seek scholars excited to contribute to the program’s growth through excellence in a specific academic focus, as well as through interdisciplinary collaborations across data science writ large. Data Science is supported by the university’s multi-million dollar investment in the recently launched Talapas supercomputing cluster that is a centerpiece of Research Advanced Computing Services (https://hpcf.uoregon.edu). The Data Science Initiative will also have synergies with the Knight Campus for Accelerating Impact (https://accelerate.uoregon.edu), itself recently launched by a $500 million dollar lead gift from Phil and Penny Knight.

    An outstanding research program and a commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels are expected. We particularly welcome applications from scholars who are from groups historically underrepresented in the academy, and/or who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds. Ph.D. required. Salary is competitive.

    For more information and application instructions visit: http://careers.uoregon.edu/cw/en-us/job/522377/assistant-professor-of-biologydata-science. The application consists of a cover letter including how the candidate will contribute to our work in mentoring, research, teaching, and outreach with women, first-generation students, communities of color, and other underrepresented groups; a curriculum vitae including a publication list; a statement of research accomplishments and future research plans; a description of teaching experience and philosophy; a statement on promoting diversity and inclusion; and three letters of recommendation (sent independently). Submission of 1-3 selected reprints is encouraged. Deadline is November 1, 2018; position open until filled.
