Faculty position in freshwater molecular ecology (open rank)-University at Buffalo


The Department of Biological Sciences at the University at Buffalo is seeking outstanding applicants for a tenured/tenure track faculty position (open rank) in freshwater molecular ecology. A competitive startup package will be provided to the successful candidate.


The University at Buffalo (UB) is the largest and most comprehensive campus in the State University of New York (SUNY) system. The Department of Biological Sciences is a comprehensive center for innovative, interdisciplinary life sciences research. The faculty position is offered as part of the newly established Institute on Research and Education in Energy, Environment and Water (RENEW) at UB in its Freshwater Coastal Ecosystems & the Blue Economy focus area. The goal of this focus area is to advance research in water and environmental sustainability. As such, the successful candidate will work in an interdisciplinary group of highly collaborative faculty whose research impacts all areas of freshwater science, including engineering, economics, and environmental policy management. Further details on RENEW and the focus area can be found at https://www.buffalo.edu/renew.html.


The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an externally funded research program and to participate in graduate and undergraduate teaching. Successful candidates are envisioned to articulate “T-shaped” research programs that combine deep disciplinary studies with interdisciplinary work to advance the research and teaching missions of the University at Buffalo, the RENEW Institute and the Department of Biological Sciences.


Applicants should have a Ph.D. (or other doctorate degree), at least two years of postdoctoral experience, a scholarly publication record and fluency in both spoken and written English. Candidates at the senior level should have an exceptional record of research funding and display leadership in their field.


To apply, electronically submit a curriculum vitae, description of current and future research interests (3 pages maximum), and copies of published or in press publications (no more than five) from recent work to: https://www.ubjobs.buffalo.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=59630.
