The candidate will also be expected to establish a productive research program in vertebrate organismal biology that is well-suited to undergraduate participation. We expect that the successful candidate will bring expertise to the department in one or more related fields, such as biomechanics, paleobiology, physiology, animal behavior, or biology of a particular vertebrate group.

    This position carries a 3-2 teaching load with a full-salary one-semester research leave prior to tenure review, and generous sabbatical and fellowship leaves for tenured faculty. Tenure track faculty are eligible for travel support and reimbursement of relocation costs within the College’s published policies.
