nal tools, at scales from single species to entire communities and biogeogr=
aphical realms. The other position is more broadly defined, and we welcome =
candidates with strong empirical (field, lab, or comparative) and applied r=

rsity of Florida, a campus-wide initiative bridging multiple units (and inc=
luding the establishment of a Biodiversity Institute), and aiming at foster=
ing collaborations among scientists, students, resource managers, and polic=
y analysts, formulating strategies to meet the biodiversity challenges of t=
he 21st century and beyond. Such strategic questions include gauging the ef=
fects on biodiversity, ecosystem processes, emerging diseases, and resource=
 sustainability of factors such as climate change, sea level rise, invasive=
 species, and environmental degradation. The University of Florida is uniqu=
ely positioned to take a leadership role in biodiversity science, capitaliz=
ing on its status as a land grant, sea grant, and space grant university, w=
ith the most comprehensive academic health center in the Southeastern US. T=
he Biodiversity Initiative will leverage extraordinary data resources and c=
omputing power (including one of the most powerful university supercomputer=
s), one of the nation's largest natural history museums, and a strong colla=
borative culture across disciplines.

by a professional credentialing service provider approved by the National A=
ssociation of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), which can be found at=
