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 Animal Physiology. A PhD is required by the date of hire. We are interested in applicants who study physiology in any animal, from invertebrates to humans. We seek a colleague to join a department with a strong multidisciplinary emphasis, and to complement and bridge strongly represented fields such as Human Health Sciences, Ecology, Comparative Biomechanics, Endocrinology, and Evolutionary Biology. Applicants with an exceptional research record using methods ranging from molecular to behavioral analyses, including field study of behavior, will be given serious consideration. Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to): the biology of aging, organismal responses to the environment or to global change, biology of behavior, and systems neuroscience. Candidates must have a strong interest in undergraduate and graduate teaching, and will be expected to contribute to instruction in the broad area of Human Biology & Health Sciences as well as in their specific area of expertise. We are interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service.
Applications and letters of reference should be submitted online through http://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/apply/JPF00045. Applications should include a curriculum vitae; a list of publications; copies of three significant publications; a brief description of research accomplishments; and a statement of research objectives, teaching interests, and service related to increasing participation in higher education by underrepresented groups. In addition, applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference submitted online. Please refer potential referees, including when letters are provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service or career center), to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality: http://apo.chance.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html.
The deadline for applications is November 1, 2012.
We are interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their teaching, research, and service. UC Berkeley is committed to addressing the family needs of faculty including single parents. Women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
