    The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at UCLA announces faculty searches for Assistant Professor (tenure-track position) or Associate Professor (tenure position) in ecology, broadly defined. We seek ecologists studying processes operating at population to global scales, in either terrestrial or marine habitats. Preference will be given to candidates who study plants, invertebrates, and/ or microbes, as well as those whose research builds connections among existing areas of strength both within the EEB Department and between the department and broader UCLA community. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a rigorous, externally funded research program and teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. EEB is a vibrant and expanding department with strengths in evolutionary and conservation genomics, field biology, quantitative biology, and behavior. The department is part of a dynamic interdepartmental research community in computational biology, bioinformatics, genomics, and conservation biology across the greater UCLA campus. The successful candidate would be a part of this rich network, with many opportunities to collaborate between disciplines and departments. Necessary qualifications include a PhD degree in ecology, botany, marine science, or related fields.

    Please direct inquires to Associate Professor Nathan Kraft (nkraft@ucla.edu). Submit application packages online through https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/apply/JPF04004 and include the following: 1) cover letter 2) curriculum vita; 3) statement of research interests; 4) statement of teaching expertise; 5) statement of formal and informal activities to promote equity, diversity and inclusion; and 6) names of three referees. All items should be distinct documents. Individuals with a history of mentoring students under-represented in the sciences are encouraged to apply and to describe their experience in a cover letter. The University of California seeks to recruit and retain a diverse workforce as a reflection of our commitment to serve the people of California, to maintain the excellence of the University, and to offer our students richly varied disciplines, perspectives and ways of knowing and learning. Review of applications will begin on November 9, 2018, and continue until position is filled.

    The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology has 29 faculty, a large graduate program, over 2000 undergraduates across three majors (Biology; Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution; Marine Biology), and two minors (Conservation Biology and Evolutionary Medicine). The department has close ties with the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, and departments across the College, David Geffen School of Medicine, and the School of Public Health. EEB is associated with the UCLA La Kretz Center for California Conservation Sciences, UCLA Stunt Ranch UC Reserve, the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden, the Donald E. Dickey Collection of Birds and Mammals, the Center for Education and Innovation and Learning in the Sciences, and the Institute for Quantitative and Computational Biosciences at time of hire.
