The Department of Zoology and Physiology at the University of Wyoming
invites applications for a tenure-track* Assistant/Associate Professor in
Aquatic Ecosystem Ecology.* The successful candidate is expected to develop
a strong, extramurally funded research program that integrates biological
and chemical or physical processes to understand aquatic ecosystems.
Candidates can have expertise in lotic or lentic systems and address
questions from the population to ecosystem level. We seek aquatic ecosystem
ecologists with biological interests ranging from elemental cycling to
production, population dynamics, food webs, and global change. The Red
Buttes Environmental Biology Laboratory is available for laboratory and
mesocosm experimental work and the university’s research station on Jackson
Lake is available for field work. The successful applicant will teach
limnology and a course within the LIFE program such as ecology or general
biology. The position will also require advising and mentoring of graduate
and undergraduate students. For further information, contact Dr. Frank
Rahel, frahel at uwyo.edu.

This search is one of four in a cluster in the Program in Ecology (aquatic
ecosystem ecologist, biogeochemist, computational biologist, and
plant-microbe interactions), and candidates may also participate in the
interdisciplinary Ph.D. programs in Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences
and Hydrologic Science. The cluster hire is supported in part by a new
5-year, $20 million NSF EPSCoR RII Track-1 grant to the University. In this
project we will study microbial life and its ecological consequences.
Faculty hired in these searches will benefit from the project’s
infrastructure and scientific outcomes and will contribute to the project's
institutional capacity building in the candidate's area of expertise.
