    The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona is accepting applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor position (tenure-track), beginning in August 2020. The ideal candidate in this broadly defined search will have a strong conceptual basis to their research, addressing fundamental questions in the fields of Ecology and/or Evolutionary Biology. We are particularly interested in candidates whose current or future research plans focus on adaptation to climate change and/or human health.

A focus on any organism or system is welcome.

    Founded in 1975, the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UA was among the first departments of its kind in the world, pioneering a model for the organization of biology that is now in use in many of the world’s leading universities. Our focus is broad, spanning levels of organization from molecular genetics and organismal function as they relate to evolution and ecology, from population and community ecology to biological diversity, phylogeny and macroevolution. Our program’s unique personality comes from our faculty members who combine theory and empirical work and take an integrative approach to blending disciplines in their research and teaching. We are excited about building an inclusive and diverse environment for research, education, and service.

    Tucson is a fun, affordable, welcoming, and livable city (and is now a UNESCO World City of Gastronomy).  We have great weather and are surrounded by spectacular scenery, including numerous national parks and wilderness areas. The Tucson area has a surprising range of habitats, amazing subtropical biodiversity, and is only a few hours drive from numerous tropical habitats in Mexico.

    ·      Teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels and contribute to mentoring students, including those from underrepresented backgrounds.
