Faculty Position in Vertebrate Physiology

The Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley, is embarking on a broad search for a scientist to fill a tenure-track position (Assistant Professor) in Vertebrate Physiology. The expected start date is July 1, 2017.

We welcome applicants who study any vertebrate taxon (including humans) and who can relate their research to human physiology. We seek a colleague to join a department with strong multidisciplinary emphases, and to complement and bridge strongly represented fields such as human health sciences, ecology, comparative biomechanics, endocrinology, genomics, and evolutionary biology. Candidates will also be expected to have a strong interest in both undergraduate and graduate teaching and to contribute to instruction in core courses of vertebrate physiology as well as in their specific area of expertise.

Required Minimum Basic Qualifications: Applicants with a Ph.D. or equivalent degree and an exceptional research record in any area of vertebrate physiology are encouraged to apply. Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to) the physiology of behavior, interactions between humans (and other primates) and pathogens, microbiome effects on organismal physiology and health, comparative metabolic physiology, systems neuroscience in an evolutionary or ecological context, mechanisms of physiological adaptation, and mechanisms of aging.The Department is interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service. A Ph.D. or equivalent degree is required by date of application.
