Deadline: September 5, 2016 and continue until the position is filled

Position Description:

The Department of Integrative Biology (http://www.uoguelph.ca/ib/) seeks to appoint a faculty member with research interests in the application of genomic tools to answer questions about biological diversity at multiple levels of organization and the processes that maintain or influence patterns of biological diversity in rapidly changing environments. This strategic choice is intended to position the university to continue to be a world leader in genomic application for decades to come. Potential areas of research interest include (but are not restricted to) ecological genomics and evolutionary genomics. Candidates must have, commensurate with the rank of Professor, a strong record of published contributions in leading journals, a well-established international reputation, as well as a strong track record in teaching.  The individual recruited will exploit leading edge approaches to genomics tools and methodologies, but with a demonstrated capacity to apply these tools to general conceptual problems. Of equal importance will be the demonstrated capacity to provide mentorship to other faculty members, graduate students and staff as well as providing effective leadership and strong participation in collaborative research across the university, including the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario.  The successful applicant will have demonstrated skills and commitment to participating in the undergraduate and graduate teaching programs of the University.  A Ph.D. is required. Salary is negotiable and commensurate with qualifications. Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, statements of teaching and research interests plus the names of three referees electronically (merged into a single PDF) to the following address:
