Job Description

To apply for this job please visit careers.wesleyan.edu.

The Biology Department at Wesleyan University seeks a tenure-track professor (open rank) in evolutionary developmental biology and broadly related areas. The successful candidate will develop an active research program bringing integrative approaches to address fundamental problems in biology. We welcome applicants whose research draws on diverse empirical, conceptual, and modeling approaches in their chosen study organism. With an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024, we seek a colleague to complement and contribute to our research and teaching strengths in cell and developmental biology, genomics and systems biology, neuroscience and behavior, ecology, and evolutionary biology.

We are searching for an individual who can contribute to our undergraduate and graduate programs and is committed to liberal arts education in a culturally diverse campus community. Teaching duties will include courses in our undergraduate and graduate curriculum, with a normal load of one full-credit course per semester, plus complementary seminars. Additional duties include academic advising, mentoring students and participating in faculty governance at the departmental and university levels.

Applicants are required to have a Ph.D. in Biology and postdoctoral experience. All tenure-track faculty in the Biology department are expected to demonstrate excellence in teaching and research, and to be prepared to use their dedicated laboratory space in our new science building to launch an independent research program funded by extramural grants. Wesleyan University is a selective liberal-arts university with Ph.D. programs in Natural Sciences and Mathematics and in Ethnomusicology. The departmental and multidisciplinary programs provide a stimulating, interactive research environment supported by a central vivarium, research greenhouse, and core facilities that include shared instrumentation for cell and molecular biology, a high-performance computing facility, and confocal and electron microscopes.

Wesleyan University, located in Middletown, Connecticut, is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or other legally protected status. We welcome applications from women and historically underrepresented minority groups. Inquiries regarding Title IX, Section 504 or any other non-discrimination policies should be directed to Vice President for Equity and Inclusion, Title IX and ADA/504 Coordinator, Debbie Colucci.

Please submit the following: cover letter, curriculum vitae, reprints, a statement of research accomplishments and plans, a statement of teaching interests, teaching evaluations (if available), a diversity/equity/inclusion statement (describing how you will embrace the college’s commitment to fostering an inclusive community, as well as your experience working with individuals from historically marginalized or underserved groups), and email addresses for three recommenders to: http://careers.wesleyan.edu/postings/10102. Review of applications will begin December 15, 2023 and will include all applications received by December 31. For application-related questions, please email the Biology Department’s Administrative Assistant, Shana Sperry (ssperry@wesleyan.edu).
