Open rank behavioral geneticist position, University of Oklahoma

The University of Oklahoma College of Arts and Sciences is excited to announce an open faculty position at any rank in the Department of Biology. As part of our “biology of behavior” strategic initiative, the department is committed to building an internationally recognized center of excellence in the biology of organismal behavior. The Department of Biology already has a strong focus on the study of animal behavior, including 16 complementary faculty research programs that investigate physiological, developmental, and evolutionary processes that underlie how animals behave. We recently built on this strength with two 2017 hires in molecular neurobiology and behavioral ecology. We now seek to enhance the collaborative momentum of this initiative by hiring a behavioral geneticist who uses transcriptomic or related “–omics” methods to examine the evolution or regulation of organismal behavior. We invite creative, innovative, dynamic individuals who would like to be part of a strong team to apply for this faculty position which begins fall 2018.

This search is part of an ongoing cluster hire of five positions in the biology of organismal behavior in the next few years. We are searching for creative, collaborative thinkers to join us in taking an integrative and multifaceted approach to revealing the ultimate and proximate causes of behavior. Find out more: http://ou.edu/bb.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. 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. Each individual will be expected to provide excellent training for graduate students and postdocs and mentor undergraduates in research. Successful candidates will contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching (one course per semester) in areas such as animal behavior, genetics, physiology, neurobiology, cell biology, genomics, or bioinformatics.

Applicants should submit 1) a cover letter describing their interest in the position, 2) a full curriculum vitae, 3) research and teaching statements, 4) up to five selected reprints/preprints as PDF files, and 5) three signed, confidential letters of reference uploaded to http://apply.interfolio.com/43194.

Visit us at http://biology.ou.edu. Screening of candidates will begin 15 October 2017 and will continue until the positions are filled. Women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
