Tenure-track position in Evolutionary Ecology
The Department of Biology at Queen’s University invites applications for a Tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor with specialization in Evolutionary Ecology, with a preferred starting date of July 1, 2018.
We seek a broadly-trained evolutionary biologist with research interests in both fundamental and applied questions related to the evolutionary consequences and management of rapidly changing environments. This position could include aspects of plant or animal biology related to climate change, pollution, resistance to pesticides/herbicides/antibiotics, biological invasion, vector-borne diseases, habitat degradation and fragmentation, and restoration ecology. Priority will be given to candidates who envision studying contemporary evolution utilizing the diverse land-holdings and facilities at the Queen's University Biological Station (QUBS). QUBS includes more than 3400 ha of diverse aquatic and terrestrial habitat, located 60 km north of Kingston (https://qubs.ca/). Situated on the Frontenac Arch, QUBS lands provide access to diverse terrestrial and aquatic habitats with a range of human disturbance. The station offers laboratory and teaching spaces as well as accommodation. Queen's is a research-intensive university, with an integrated Biology Department that encompasses observational, experimental and theoretical approaches to gain a fundamental understanding of biological systems and processes. Strong collaborative linkages exist with other departments and faculties at Queen's, and with other national and international institutions.
