Princeton University’s Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics seek to jointly hire a tenure-track Assistant Professor focusing on Evolutionary and Quantitative Biology. Sample areas might include, but are not limited to: molecular/genome evolution, population genomics, evolution of development, behavioral genetics, experimental evolution, microbial evolution of prokaryotes or eukaryotes, epigenetics, metagenomics, and/or quantitative genetics, using traditional and/or emerging model systems (though the specific model system is less important than the nature of the questions being addressed). We seek applicants who pursue research that aims for significant conceptual integration across traditional disciplinary boundaries. We likewise seek colleagues who will enthusiastically contribute to a climate that embraces both excellence and diversity, and who share our commitment to a mentoring process that advances EEB, LSI and the university, and that attracts and retains students of all ethnicities, nationalities, and genders.
