  1. The University of Oklahoma College of Arts and Sciences is excited to announce three open faculty positions at any rank in the Department of Biology. As part of our Biology of Behavior strategic initiative, the department continues to build an internationally recognized center of excellence in studying mechanisms of organismal behavior. We are searching for creative, collaborative thinkers to join us in taking an integrative and multifaceted approach to understanding the ultimate and proximate causes of behavior. The Department of Biology already has a strong focus on the study of animal behavior, including 16 complementary faculty research programs that investigate the neurobiological, developmental, and evolutionary processes that underlie how animals behave. See http://ou.edu/bb/ for more details. We seek to enhance the collaborative momentum of this initiative by inviting individuals with creative, innovative, and dynamic research programs who are interested in joining a strong group of researchers to apply for these faculty positions: · A Geneticist who uses integrative molecular approaches to understand the evolution, specification, and/or regulation of how genes affect organismal behavior. · A Behavioral Physiologist who studies the endocrine regulation and modulation of behavior. · An Evolutionary Developmental Biologist who studies how developmental processes give rise to organismal morphology, nervous system structures, and/or physiology that lay the foundation for the generation of behavior. The anticipated start date for these positions is August 2020. For additional details, please visit http://ou.edu/bb and http://www.ou.edu/cas/biology. QUALIFICATIONS Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree and a record of outstanding achievement as evidenced by publications. Preferred candidates will have a promising (Assistant professor) or externally funded (Associate/Full professor) research program. Successful candidates will be expected to provide excellent research training for students and postdocs and contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching (one course per semester) in areas such as animal behavior, genetics, physiology, neurobiology, cell biology, genomics, or bioinformatics. APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS Applicants should submit a cover letter describing their interest in a position, a full curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, and up to five selected reprints/preprints as PDF files to the website for the appropriate position: Geneticist: https://apply.interfolio.com/67539 Behavioral Physiologist: https://apply.interfolio.com/67562 Evolutionary Developmental Biologist: https://apply.interfolio.com/67569 Applicants at the rank of Assistant Professor should also arrange to have three signed letters of reference uploaded to the appropriate website.
