Review of Applications begins Dec 3 2017

The Department of Biology at Sonoma State University seeks to hire a highly motivated and productive scientist for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Community Ecology. The candidate must have a proven track record of publication in peer-reviewed journals and will be expected to develop and maintain an externally funded research program. We are interested in candidates that work in terrestrial (above ground and/or below ground) or marine systems. We are especially interested in candidates whose research program uses a range of techniques that include field approaches to examine community processes. We seek a dynamic teacher-scholar with a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate education and the ability to attract and mentor students in our graduate program. Teaching responsibilities include introductory, upper-division, and graduate classes, and for this position may include ecology or marine ecology. The candidate will also have the opportunity to contribute to other courses, which could include an offering in their area of specialty. See full job announcement at our web site:

Sonoma State University is located in Sonoma County, which offers access to a wide range of environments for research, and is home to the Center for Environmental Inquiry, which manages Galbreath Wildlands Preserve (3,670 acres) and Fairfield Osborn Preserve (450 acres). In addition, the Department of Biology has greenhouse facilities that are used for both teaching and research.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
