Dear Colleagues,

The Biology Department at UNC Chapel Hill has three tenure track faculty 
positions open this year (see the job ad, below). One is explicitly for 
a plant biologist, and another is for an evolutionary biologist that 
could certainly include a plant oriented individual. We would be 
grateful if you could forward this ad to anyone you would consider to be 
an exceptional young scientist. The successful applicants will join a 
vibrant interdisciplinary department and be housed in our new state of 
the art, interdepartmental Genome Science Building.

Joe Kieber is our chair and he or I would be happy to discuss the 
position with you or anyone interested.

all the best,

Jeff Dangl

*Faculty Positions in Biological Sciences*

*The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


The UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Biology seeks three tenure-track 
Assistant Professors, as part of an expansion initiative. Two of the 
three positions are described below, while the third, a joint 
appointment with the UNC School of Medicine, will be advertised 
separately. We seek individuals with expertise in the areas defined 
below, and we are especially interested in scientists who seek 
opportunities for inter- and cross-disciplinary research in a vibrant 
and broad Biology Department and larger research community.


*Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Evolutionary Biology*: We seek 
individuals addressing fundamental questions in evolutionary biology 
using integrative approaches that cut across disciplinary boundaries. 
Areas of interest include (but are not restricted to) evolution and 
development, the use of phylogenetic or comparative methods to address 
macroevolutionary questions, and genomic approaches, including natural 
populations of non-model species. However, applications from any area of 
evolutionary biology are encouraged. The successful candidate will 
interact with the diverse community of biologists within the Biology 
Department and across the university, and will complement ongoing 
initiatives in Quantitative Biology, Genomics, and Environment and 
Ecology. Questions regarding the position should be directed to Karin 
Pfennig (kpfennig from unc.edu <mailto:kpfennig from unc.edu>).


Evolutionary Biology*: *Click on 
http://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/32180 from any internet browser to 
apply for this position.A cover letter, a CV, a research statement (<4 
pages; 1 inch margins), and a teaching statement (<2 pages; 1 inch 
margins) should be submitted in pdf format; up to three reprints may 
also be submitted as a single pdf file. Four letters of reference are 
required, and may be submitted electronically with "Evolutionary Search" 
in subject line to cpasternak from bio.unc.edu 
<mailto:cpasternak from bio.unc.edu>. Review of applications will begin 
October 14, 2013 with interviews occurring in early 2014. The position 
will be effective on or after July 1, 2014. The successful candidate 
must have a Ph.D. in a relevant field.


*Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Plant Genomics**, *defined broadly. 
Individuals using molecular, genetic, epigenetic, biochemical, cell 
biological, genomic, proteomic, metabolomic, ecological, analysis of 
natural variation or other approaches to investigate pressing problems 
in plant biology are encouraged to apply. Research programs at all 
levels (from molecules to ecosystems) are welcome, and applicants with a 
demonstrated ability to work across levels are particularly encouraged. 
Similarly, the ability to integrate quantitative analysis and modeling 
with experimental approaches is desirable. Successful candidates are 
expected to build an active research group, secure competitive external 
funding, and participate actively in the scientific community at UNC-CH. 
Successful candidates will also need excellent communication skills and 
the ability to energetically engage with undergraduate and graduate 
teaching while performing cutting edge research. The successful 
candidate could also contribute to a new initiative in Quantitative 
Biology (http://bio.unc.edu/files/2013/09/UNC_Qbio_Program.pdf) and be 
affiliated with the NIH-funded graduate Curriculum in Bioinformatics and 
Computational Biology (http://bcb.unc.edu <http://bcb.unc.edu/>). For 
inquiries, please contact Dr. Joe Kieber (jkieber from bio.unc.edu 
<mailto:jkieber from bio.unc.edu>; 919-962-4455).



Plant Genomics*:*  Click onhttp://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/32791  from any internet browser to apply for this position.*  *Submit a cover letter ending with
up to 5 key words, a CV, a research statement (<4 pages; 1 inch margins), a teaching statement (<2 pages; 1 inch margins), and optionally one additional
supporting document.Four letters of reference are required, and may be submitted electronically with "Plant Genomics" in the subject line to:
cpasternak from bio.unc.edu  <mailto:cpasternak from bio.unc.edu>  


Review of applications will begin October 15, 2013, with interviews concluding mid-January, 2014. The position will be effective on or after July 1, 2014.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in a relevant field.

The Department of Biology consists of over 40 faculty engaged in basic 
and interdisciplinary research in the life sciences, within the 
department and between other departments and schools at UNC. UNC 
faculty, postdocs and graduate students also routinely interact with 
colleagues at nearby Duke and North Carolina State Universities, as well 
as other institutions in Research Triangle Park. UNC ranks 9^th in 
federal research funding nationally. The quality of life in North 
Carolina's Triangle area is consistently rated among the highest in the 
nation.UNC was listed as one of the top 20 "Best Places to Work in 
Academia" in 2013 by /The Scientist/ magazine. To learn more about the 
department and the university, visit http://www.bio.unc.edu 

Diversity, inclusiveness, and civility are core values and 
characteristics of the University of North Carolina, and we strongly 
encourage applications from diverse individuals. The University of North 
Carolina is an equal opportunity employer.
