Princeton University’s Departments of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and of Molecular Biology jointly plan to hire one individual at the level of tenure-track Assistant Professor, with a focus on molecular evolution. We seek an individual who would have strong connections in both departments. Sample areas might include, but are not limited to, microbial evolution, experimental evolution, epigenetics, metagenomics, and/or the evolution of development, using traditional and/or emerging model systems. We seek applicants who pursue experimental research that aims for significant conceptual and empirical integration across traditional disciplinary boundaries and who have a strong commitment to teaching.

Applicants should write a vision statement, no longer than 2 pages, that outlines one or more major unsolved problems in their field and how they plan to address them. The vision statement must be more than a précis of the applicant’s prior and current research. Applications, including the vision statement, curriculum vitae, three reprints and contact information for three references, can be submitted online via, to Req #1200524. Screening of applications will begin 1 October 2012.
