This job has expired.


As part of a multi-year hiring initiative, the Department of Ecology & Evolution at the University of Chicago is searching for faculty working in the ecology or evolutionary biology of plants, using either field-based or a combination of field, laboratory and conceptual/theoretical approaches. Areas include, but are not limited to, plant ecology, plant evolution, plant-animal or plant-pathogen interactions, plant responses and adaptations to global change, or plant contributions to ecosystem processes. Appointment as assistant professor is expected, but applicants for tenured ranks will be considered.

Competitive research space and start-up funding will be available, as will the potential for interactions with our off-campus affiliates, Argonne National Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory. Appointees will have access to endowed research funds and dedicated space in the greenhouse facilities and the Warren Woods Biological Station in Three Oaks, Michigan. The University is an exciting center of scientific discovery and innovation, and opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration and participation as graduate student trainers abound. Most university divisions and centers are contained within one compact campus in Chicago's vibrant Hyde Park neighborhood, where many faculty members and students live.

Qualified applicants must have received a doctoral degree or equivalent. To be considered, those interested must apply through the University of Chicago's Academic Recruitment job board, which uses Interfolio to accept applications: Applications must include a cover letter, a C.V. including bibliography, contact information for 3 references, a research statement outlining research goals and highlighting up to three selected publications or pre-prints, and a teaching statement that may describe the candidate's experience in teaching diverse students [The University's Diversity Statement can be found at]. Each statement should be less than three pages in length. Review will consider only complete applications received by September 26, 2022.
