POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: The University of Oklahoma is seeking a new 
faculty member who works at the intersection of climate change and 
biological diversity to fill a 12-month, tenure-track position as an 
Assistant Professor jointly appointed between the Oklahoma Biological 
Survey and the Department of Botany and Microbiology, beginning 1 July 
2011. We seek researchers who use modern tools to understand how 
changing climate patterns influence plant biodiversity and ecosystem 
function. The University of Oklahoma provides an ideal setting for 
addressing this question because of the sharp, east–west climate 
gradient across the southern Plains, the diversity of ecoregions and 
habitats, excellent infrastructure including world-class climate and 
genomics facilities, and strong faculty expertise in Meteorology, 
Climate, Molecular and Organismal Biology, and Ecology and Environmental 
Science. Responsibilities will include developing an externally funded 
research program and teaching one course per year in the candidate’s 
area of expertise. A Ph.D. is required; postdoctoral experience is 
preferred. The successful applicant must demonstrate research 
productivity, the potential to attract external funding, and teaching 
skills. Screening will begin 15 December 2010 and continue until the 
position is filled. Please send curriculum vitae, up to five sample 
reprints, and full contact information for four references to:

    Michael A. Patten, Search Committee Chair
