Position Description: The Department of Integrative Biology (http://ift.tt/24ME5eg) seeks to
appoint a faculty member with research interests in the application of genomic tools to answer
questions about biological diversity at multiple levels of organization and the processes that maintain or
influence patterns of biological diversity in rapidly changing environments. This strategic choice is
intended to position the university to continue to be a world leader in genomic application for decades
to come. Potential areas of research interest include (but are not restricted to) ecological genomics and
evolutionary genomics. Candidates must have, commensurate with the rank of Professor, a strong
record of published contributions in leading journals, a well-established international reputation, as well
as a strong track record in teaching. The individual recruited will exploit leading edge approaches to
genomics tools and methodologies, but with a demonstrated capacity to apply these tools to general
conceptual problems. Of equal importance will be the demonstrated capacity to provide mentorship to
other faculty members, graduate students and staff as well as providing effective leadership and strong
participation in collaborative research across the university, including the Biodiversity Institute of
Ontario. The successful applicant will have demonstrated skills and commitment to participating in the
undergraduate and graduate teaching programs of the University. A Ph.D. is required. Salary is
negotiable and commensurate with qualifications. Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae,
statements of teaching and research interests plus the names of three referees electronically (merged
into a single PDF) to the following address:
