The Department of Biological Sciences at The University of Alabama invites applications for a tenure- track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor in Integrative Ecoimmunology. We seek applicants whose research focuses on mechanisms driving changes in host physiology and behavior in response to parasites or pathogens under ecologically relevant contexts. Applicants should use broadly integrative approaches including, but not limited to, molecular, cellular, and physiological methods to characterize host immune responses, hormonal modulation of immune responses, disease susceptibility in a social context, parasite/pathogen manipulation of host behavior and physiology, and life history evolution. Candidates that utilize field-based approaches and/or laboratory-based investigations using model or non-model systems are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to establish an extramurally funded and internationally recognized research program in Ecoimmunology. Teaching responsibilities will include basic undergraduate courses in biology, immunology, and graduate courses in the successful candidate's area of expertise.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in the Biological Sciences or related field, postdoctoral (or equivalent job) experience, demonstrated excellence in research, and a commitment to excellence in teaching and the training of undergraduate and graduate students.
