TENURE-TRACK ASSISTANT PROFESSOR: VERTEBRATE EVOLUTION AND ITS ENVIRONMENTAL CONTEXT
DEPARTMENT OF ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION
STONY BROOK UNIVERSITY
As part of a university-wide initiative involving the Turkana Basin Institute, the
Department of Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook University invites applications for a
tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor whose research concerns
vertebrate evolution and/or its ecological and climatological context. Areas of particular
interest include, but are not limited to, phylogenetics, comparative vertebrate
morphology, vertebrate paleontology, paleoecology, and paleo-community ecology.
This position is one of five faculty lines being created across campus for researchers
whose interests intersect with the goals and resources of the Turkana Basin Institute. We
seek a candidate with the potential to augment or build upon one or more of the Department
of Ecology and Evolution’s current research strengths, while taking advantage of Stony
Brook’s unique relationship with the Turkana Basin Institute and related programs across
campus. The Turkana Basin is a premier site for the discovery and understanding of hominid
and vertebrate evolution and the ecological and climatological context of these processes.
Candidates need not at present have a research program in the Turkana Basin.
We seek a candidate who will be an effective teacher in undergraduate and graduate courses
in the areas of ecology and evolution, and who will develop programs that will enhance the
department’s tradition of interdisciplinary research. Details of the department’s areas of
research emphasis and current facilities may be found at
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in ecology and evolution or closely related
field at the time of appointment; preference will be given to those with related
post-doctoral experience. The successful candidate must also have the clear potential to
establish an internationally recognized, externally funded research program that would
include mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students.
Applications are due by December 1, 2017 through AcademicJobsOnline.org at
http://academicjobso.../ajo/jobs/10164 (Position ID: 10164). Applications must
include a cover letter, CV, research and teaching statements and the names and contact
information of three references. Applications should be addressed to Search Committee,
Department of Ecology and Evolution, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY, 11794-2100,
USA. Questions should be directed to the Chair of the Search Committee, Prof. Jeffrey
