*Three Faculty Positions in Ecology *

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at the University
of Michigan seeks applicants for three assistant professor (tenure-track)
positions in ecology. These are university-year appointments with an
expected start date of September 1, 2017.

*(1) Ecosystem Ecologist.* We welcome applicants who study ecosystem
processes in any of the planet’s major ecosystems, including aquatic,
terrestrial, wild-land, managed, and urban ecosystems. We are especially
interested in individuals who include field and experimental approaches in
their research. Areas of interest include, amongst others, biogeochemistry,
carbon sequestration, and the effects of environmental change on ecosystem
pools and fluxes.

*(2) Population/Community Ecologist.* We welcome applicants who study
processes in any ecosystem or habitat type, including managed and urban
systems. We also encourage individuals interested in interdisciplinary
research. Areas of interest include, amongst others, mechanisms of
population regulation; causes of species extinctions; and maintenance of
biodiversity, community structure and ecosystem function under
environmental change. Ideally, candidates will have an empirical research
program that bridges to ecological theory.

*(3) Theoretical Ecologist.* We seek applicants who bring cutting-edge
theoretical, mathematical, and computational tools to the study of
ecological systems of any kind, including traditional fields such as
population dynamics and community assembly as well as emerging
subdisciplines such as urban ecology, macroecology, microbial ecology,
disease ecology, and eco-immunology. Applicants with inter- and
trans-disciplinary interests and who integrate theoretical development with
empirical tests, whether alone or in collaboration, are especially
encouraged to apply. This position will be a joint appointment with the
University of Michigan Center for the Study of Complex Systems.

For all three positions, we are especially interested in individuals who
will leverage the facilities available at the University of Michigan,
including world class biodiversity collections, a local field research
facility (the Edwin S. George Reserve), and a large educational and
research facility in northern Michigan (the University of Michigan
Biological Station).

Applications should include a cover letter, CV, a concise statement
describing their current and future plans for research, a statement of
their teaching philosophy and experience and evidence of teaching
excellence (if any), and a statement of activities contributing to
diversity, equity and inclusion in Academia. Applicants should also include
the names and email addresses of three references.

EEB is committed to fostering ethnic and gender diversity throughout the
department, and is especially interested in candidates contributing to the
diversity and excellence of our academic community through their teaching,
research, and/or service. To apply, please see
<http://www.resources-eeb.lsa.umich.edu/search16/index.php>*. Review of
applications will begin on *September 1, 2016 *(Ecosystem Ecologist),
15, 2016* (Population/Community Ecologist), and *October 1, 2016*
(Theoretical Ecologist) and will continue until the positions are filled.

*Women and minorities are encouraged to apply and the University is
supportive of the needs of dual career couples. The University of Michigan
is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.*
