The Department of Biology in the Eberly College of Science (www.bio.psu.edu) and the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences (http://www.huck.psu.edu) at The Pennsylvania State University seek enthusiastic, creative, and productive applicants for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in Evolutionary Genomics. The evolutionary analysis of rapidly expanding genomic datasets requires development and implementation of sophisticated laboratory techniques and rigorous computational approaches. The successful applicant is expected to develop a strong, independent, externally funded research program leading to novel insights and paradigms in evolution from generating and/or analyses of complex genomic datasets. We are particularly interested in candidates working with vertebrate (including human and other mammalian) systems and in candidates developing the theoretical foundation of evolutionary genomics. The applicant must have a Ph.D. in biology, computer science, statistics, software engineering, or a related field. The successful applicant is expected to teach and perform research in a collaborative environment, with the opportunity to join one of the Centers in the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences and to supervise students from interdisciplinary graduate programs. This position features a competitive start-up package. Applications must be submitted electronically and must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research interests statement, teaching interests statement, and contact information for at least three professional references. Review of applications will begin on September 15th and continue until the position has been filled.
