The Department of Botany and Plant Pathology invites applications for a full-time (1.0 FTE) 9-month, tenure-track position as Assistant Professor.
The successful candidate will be expected to establish an innovative and competitive research program that pursues scholarly work in the area of fungal biology / mycology. The area of research specialization is open and includes ecology, evolution, genetics and genomics of fungi.. The successful candidate will serve as Curator of the OSU Mycological Herbarium, and will teach Mycology in the Botany and Plant Pathology program and one course in Biological Data Sciences, an undergraduate major currently being developed.
The Department of Botany and Plant Pathology (BPP) focuses on fundamental aspects of plant and fungal biology, and translation of that knowledge to address important societal issues. Research interests encompass plant health, plant function, plant-microbe and -insect interactions, plant and microbial genomics and computational biology, evolutionary biology, and ecology of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. BPP is also the primary research and extension unit within OSU addressing diseases of economically important plants crops in Oregon, and plant diseases of worldwide signifi¬cance. BPP is in the College of Agricultural Sciences, one of Oregon’s principal sources of knowledge relating to food, agricultural, and natural resource systems, and a major source of knowledge regarding environmental quality, natural resources, biodiversity, life sciences, and rural economies and communities worldwide. College of Agricultural Sciences faculty are committed to enhancing student success by engaging students in quality academic, research, internships, global studies, and other experiential learning opportunities.
(Even though this already had a closing in Dec, there is still interest in more applications to this position).
One tenure track assistant professor faculty position will be filled in the Pathogen and Microbiome Institute, with tenure assignment to an academic department relevant to the faculty member’s expertise (e.g., Department of Biological Sciences, School of Informatics and Computer Science and Cyber Systems) beginning August 21, 2017.
Individuals are invited to apply for an assistant professor faculty position in the Pathogen and Microbiome Institute at Northern Arizona University. We are seeking individuals with research interests that complement existing strengths in basic or translational pathogen and microbiome research, which may include bioinformatics, genomics, immunology, molecular epidemiology, microbiology, population genetics, disease ecology, phylogeography, clinical and environmental microbiology expertise. This is a research intensive position with competitive teaching loads in subject areas that will be dictated by the applicant’s expertise. Evidence of grant potential will be required.
The successful candidates will be expected to: (1) develop and/or transfer an intensive research program that is supported by awards from extramural agencies; (2) contribute to the university graduate training program with M.S. and Ph.D. students, and postdoctoral fellows; and (3) perform service for the department, university, and profession.
University of British Columbia’s Michael Smith Laboratory and Center for High-throughput Biology are advertising 6 faculty positions some of which could be great match for candidates with fungal biology interests. There is more information about the jobs and applying available here.
[note: I am more than happy to post mycology related job adverts on this site, so please feel free to be in touch]
Trying a little experiment here. I’ve started a wiki page for jobs that fall into the general category of genomics, fungi, and evolution and added a tab link to this at the top of the blog site. At this point I am only posting academic positions (Faculty and postdoctoral positions) but it may be possible to include industry and government postings if there is sufficient interest.
