Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences, Physiology (tenure-track)
Location: Athens, Ohio
Internal Number: 44655
The Department of Biological Sciences at Ohio University (https://www.ohio.edu/cas/biosci/) invites applications for a nine-month, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor with an expected start date of August 2023. We are interested in candidates who use integrative approaches (experimental, comparative, omics, or computational) to study the physiology of interactions between host, microbiome, and/or symbiont.
We encourage but are not limited to considering applications from candidates whose research focuses on understanding how physiological processes in a host are affected by its microbiome, e.g., influences on metabolism, hormonal regulation, behavior, neurophysiology, aging, immune function, or pathophysiological mechanisms of a disease affected by the microbiome.
Candidates will be expected to establish an innovative, extramurally funded research program. We seek applicants whose research interests complement and extend our departmental strengths in cellular and molecular biology, physiology, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and ecology, and who can collaborate with faculty in a broad-based biology department. Faculty members in the department teach and mentor undergraduate, M.S., and Ph.D. students. Teaching will include an upper-level undergraduate course in Human Physiology and two additional courses that fill departmental teaching needs and are consistent with the candidate's expertise.
