University of Arizona — Assistant Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

The Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona is accepting applications for an Assistant Professor position (tenure track) to begin in August 2023. We are broadly interested in applicants working in any area of ecology (e.g. physiological, behavioral, population, community, global, theoretical, computational, experimental, field, and climate change ecology, as well as biodiversity science and eco-informatics). We welcome those with expertise in individual systems and those who integrate across approaches, systems, or scales. We encourage programs that involve local or regional systems and leverage the university’s experimental and computational resources.

Founded in 1975, the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona was among the first departments of its kind in the world, pioneering a model for the organization of biology that is now in use in many of the world’s leading universities. Our focus is broad, spanning levels of organization from molecular genetics and organismal function as they relate to evolution and ecology, from population and community ecology to biological diversity, phylogeny and macroevolution. Our program’s unique personality comes from our faculty members who combine theory and empirical work and take an integrative approach to blending disciplines in their research and teaching. We are excited about building an inclusive and diverse environment for research, education, and service.

Tucson is a fun, affordable, welcoming, and livable city (and is now a UNESCO World City of Gastronomy).

The Tucson area has a surprising range of habitats, amazing subtropical biodiversity, and is only a few hours drive from numerous tropical habitats in Mexico.
