New Faculty Positions in
Biology of Behavior

Neuron and Network

We are excited to announce two open positions as part of the planned strategic growth in the Department of Biology. We invite creative, innovative, dynamic individuals who would like to be part of a strong team to apply for the following tenured/tenure-track faculty positions, which begin fall 2018:

  • A Behavioral Geneticist who uses transcriptomic or related “–omics” methods to examine the evolution or regulation of organismal behavior. 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.
  • A Proteomics expert using proteomics methods to address wide-ranging basic and translational research problems that bridge biological and anthropological sciences. 

We are searching for collaborative thinkers to join us in taking an integrative and multifaceted approach to revealing the ultimate and proximate causes of behavior as well as integrating evolutionary, developmental, physiological and genetic mechanisms of behavior from the social to molecular levels.
