A tenure-track faculty position in Conservation Biology is available at
the Assistant Professor level in the Biology Department at Wesleyan
University. We are especially interested in candidates whose research
addresses conservation biology issues in a fundamental research context,
by drawing on one or more of the following disciplines: evolutionary
genetics, population ecology, behavioral ecology, ecophysiology, or
systematics. We expect field work on natural populations to be a
significant component of the successful candidate's research program.
Wesleyan's Biology Department has a research-oriented faculty that
successfully attracts outside funding. Candidates should have a Ph.D.
and at least two years postdoctoral experience. The successful
applicant will be expected to set up an independent research program and
to participate in the departmental Ph.D. program. Teaching (at
undergraduate and graduate levels) will be in the areas of conservation
biology, field biology, ecology, and/or evolution, depending on the
candidate's expertise. Please send us your curriculum vitae and a
concise statement of future research plans, and have three letters of
recommendation sent to: Conservation Biology Search Committee,
Department of Biology, Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT 06459-0170

equal opportunity employer.
