We seek colleagues who employ innovative and integrative approaches to investigate fundamental questions centering on the interactions of organisms with their environment. Candidates whose research addresses those dynamics in nature and can synergize with the Division’s research strengths in Evolutionary Ecology, Genetics, Plant Biology, Neurobiology & Behavior, and Cell Biology are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Preparing Future Faculty – Faculty Diversity (PFFFD) program is a unique opportunity for emerging scholars to become part of a growing department. The primary goal of the PFFFD program is to recruit exceptional postdoctoral scholars to transition to tenure-track faculty positions and increase representation of historically marginalized groups in DBS and MU. The fellowship period is for up to three years, during which time scholars will be provided with mentorship, research funds, and the opportunity to participate in faculty affairs. Our expectation is for the scholar to transition to a faculty position in our department. For this transition, in the final year of the fellowship the candidate will be asked to submit materials and will be formally interviewed by the faculty. Interested candidates should contact potential mentors to discuss their interests and potential collaborations.
The Division of Biological Sciences is committed to increasing the representation of historically excluded groups across all levels of our community. We recognize the need for fostering a diverse and inclusive community, to support our goals of becoming excellent educators and researchers. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to these core values and to provide effective mentorship to students and trainees from underrepresented groups.
