The Department of Biological Sciences at Dartmouth College seeks applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Microbial Ecology. We seek highly qualified candidates who investigate important questions relating to the ecology of microbes and their interactions with other organisms. Candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree. We seek a colleague who will supervise an independent, extramurally funded research program; provide research training for graduate and undergraduate students; teach introductory ecology and other courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels; and contribute to Dartmouth’s recently expanded cross-departmental graduate program in Ecology, Evolution, Ecosystems and Society. Dartmouth also offers many other relevant opportunities for research and graduate training, including the Molecular and Cellular Biology Graduate Program and the Microbiology & Molecular Pathogenesis Program. Application materials should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three representative publications, statements of research and teaching interests, and contact information for three references.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. My lab is in the UC Davis Genome Center and I hold appointments in the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology in the School of Medicine and the Department of Evolution and Ecology in the College of Biological Sciences. My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis (see my lab site here which has more information on lab activities).  In addition to research, I am heavily involved in the Open Access publishing and Open Science movements.
