The Microbial Sciences Institute (MSI) at Yale University, in partnership with the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (E&EB), seeks applicants for an open-rank (tenure-track or tenured)faculty position in microbial ecology, microbial evolution, or the intersection of these fields.
The MSI (http://microbialsciences.yale.edu) is a central hub where research teams from multiple departments contribute broad perspectives, approaches, and expertise in microbiology. Current research areas include biology of microbial communities, host-microbe interaction, and structural biology of microbial metabolism. The MSI values deep exploration of the microbial world, prizes mentorship and interaction, and aims to push the boundaries of microbiology.
The E&EB department (http://eeb.yale.edu) is home to broad, interdisciplinary and highly collaborative research with particular expertise in population, community and ecosystem ecology, macroecology, and disease ecology and evolution; in evolutionary genetics, developmental evolution, behavioral evolution, and evolutionary medicine; and in phylogenetics, systematics, and biodiversity.
Applications will be evaluated for alignment with both the MSI and E&EB, with a target start date of July 1, 2023. The position includes a full (primary) appointment in E&EB within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, in addition to colleagues and research space in MSI. MSI and E&EB strive to foster a diverse, inclusive, and supportive community, and the application includes a personal statement to describe your perspective on the opportunities and challenges in building an equitable and inclusive environment. Women, protected veterans, persons with disabilities, and members of underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
To answer questions about MSI and E&EB, the search process and faculty position, and our commitment to supporting and mentoring junior faculty, we will host a Q&A session by Zoom in early fall 2022 - check the MSI website for details.
Review of applications will begin November 1, 2022 and continue until the position is filled. Inquiries about the position may be sent to the attention of Dr. Andrew Goodman, Director of the Microbial Sciences Institute, c/o Bianca Abreu (firstname.lastname@example.org).
