The Center for Mechanisms of Evolution and the Department of Physics at Arizona State University are seeking to fill one open-rank faculty position. To apply, please submit electronically, to http://apply.interfolio.com/69218

These positions are two of six new CME faculty positions, focused on the mechanistic processes underlying evolutionary change. The research focus of the Center is primarily at the cellular level, with the growing group being populated with scientists from the areas of cell biology, microbiology, biophysics, biochemistry, and population genetics. Desirable attributes of faculty candidates are a deep interest in evolution and dedication to integrating theory with empirical work. Successful candidates can anticipate generous start-up packages.

The CME is located within the Biodesign Institute in the new Building C, which itself supports a diversity of other interdisciplinary centers and is well-equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. The CME is part of a growing community of evolutionary biologists at ASU (https://sols.asu.edu/evolutionary-biology-faculty and http://asupopgen.org/). Learn more about what The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has to offer by visiting https://thecollege.asu.edu/faculty. The candidate will also be associated with one of the largest biophysics groups within a Physics Department in the US, the Center for Biological Physics (https://cbp.asu.edu).

Review of applications will begin November 16, 2019 and will continue until the positions are filled.

Scientific inquiries are welcome, and can be addressed to Michael Lynch @ mlynch11@asu.edu; more general inquiries to biodesigninstitute@asu.edu.
