Ecology and Evolutionary Biology– Assistant Professor position in population genetics

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology is searching for a tenure track Assistant Professor in population genetics. We seek candidates who use computational, theoretical, and/or experimental approaches to study genetic variation in any biological system. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a rigorous, externally funded research program and teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.                                  > > Click for more info

Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Quantitative and Computational Biosciences- Assistant Professor position in Quantitative Ecology or Evolution of Microbes

We seek quantitative and computational biologists who study the ecology or evolution of microbes, at the level of populations or communities, including microbiomes, free-living microbes, microbial symbionts and pathogens. The competitive applicant will apply fundamental principles of ecology or evolutionary biology, in conjunction with quantitative approaches, to understand the dynamics of microbial systems. Research on naturally-occurring (terrestrial, aquatic or marine) or laboratory systems will be considered, and research with implications for health is welcome but not essential. Quantitative empirical approaches (including experiments) and use of cutting edge technologies are encouraged, as is potential to synergize with UCLA’s strong biomedical research community via connections across disciplines and spatial scales.   > > Click for more info

The Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology Department and the Institute for Quantitative and Computational Biosciences, seek to hire an outstanding candidate for a tenure-track Assistant Professor or tenured track Associate Professor position with a research program that uses imaging, quantitative reasoning and/or computational approaches to address fundamental questions in cell or developmental biology. The ideal candidate will lead a creative and impactful research program at the intersection of cell and developmental biology, microscopy, image analysis, and quantitative modeling. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to: Systems analyses of developmental processes using live image data; reconstruction and analysis of cell lineages or cellular circuits; implementation of new approaches to visualize and study subcellular processes at high temporal or spatial resolution; computational modeling of biological phenomena in conjunction with experimental image data.  > > Click for more info
