The Department of Biological Sciences at Auburn University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position beginning Fall 2021 at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in Plant Developmental Biology.
We seek a highly collaborative candidate who will examine fundamental mechanisms governing developmental processes in plants. A successful candidate is expected to establish an extramurally funded, internationally recognized research program focused on plant developmental biology. Instructional responsibilities include development of graduate and/or undergraduate courses in plant developmental biology related to their area of emphasis. Faculty will join existing Plant Biologists as well as recent Developmental hires in Marine and Terrestrial systems as an emerging group of Developmental Biologists in the department.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences or a closely related discipline at the time employment begins, and relevant postdoctoral experience. The successful candidate must possess excellent written and interpersonal communication skills. Desired qualifications include a strong record of publication, teaching experience, and demonstrated (or potential) ability to acquire extramural funding.
Review of applications will begin December 1, 2020
