The <http://www.ou.edu/cas/zoology>Department of Zoology at the 
<http://www.ou.edu/>University of Oklahoma invites applications 
and nominations for Department Chair.  We seek an individual who 
will provide leadership in a large, diverse and growing department 
composed of 34 faculty members (with several open and new lines 
anticipated in the next three years), 12 staff, and about 50 graduate 
students working in a wide array of specialties.  The department 
also serves over 450 undergraduate Zoology majors.  Core areas of 
research emphasis exist within the broad fields of Behavioral 
Neuroscience & Comparative Physiology; Evolution, Ecology & 
Behavior; and Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology.  

As an academic department, Zoology has close ties with three 
organized research units: the 
<http://www.biosurvey.ou.edu/>Oklahoma Biological Survey, the 
<http://www.omnh.ou.edu/>Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of 
Natural History, and the <http://www.ou.edu/uobs/>University of 
Oklahoma Biological Station. In addition, many opportunities for 
collaborative research and instruction exist through the 
<http://www.ou.edu/cas/botany-micro/>Department of Botany and 
Microbiology, the <http://cheminfo.chem.ou.edu/>Department of 
Chemistry and Biochemistry, and the 
<http://www.ou.edu/research/electron/>Noble Electron Microscopy 
Laboratory.  The <http://main.ouhsc.edu/>University of Oklahoma 
Health Sciences Center is in nearby 
<http://okcchamber.com>Oklahoma City, a metropolitan area of

central Oklahoma. Various natural areas are found within a 125-
mile radius of Norman, including shortgrass to tallgrass prairie,

We seek an integrative scientist with an internationally recognized 
and active research program who is knowledgeable about current
