Applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Entomology at Rutgers University are invited. It is anticipated that the successful applicant will be a molecular and genome biologist, broadly defined. Research focusing on the application of cutting-edge genomic methodologies and bioinformatic techniques to further understand and ultimately control human and enzootic vector/pathogen systems.
We encourage applications by candidates whose research and teaching aims align with the Department of Entomology's commitment to One Health, a transdisciplinary approach founded on the recognition that human health is ultimately connected to that of animals by virtue of our shared environment. Furthermore, we strive to increase the diversity of our faculty body and encourage applications from women, minorities, and individuals with a commitment to mentoring under-represented demographics in the sciences.
A critical pillar of the Rutgers Academic Master Plan is student success https://newbrunswick. rutgers.edu/academic-master-plan. Instructors must create a welcoming, equitable, and supportive learning environment for all students and instructors must provide high-impact learning opportunities that will prepare students for a successful career. The successful candidate will develop courses in insect diversity, molecular evolution, and biotechnology. Participation in departmental and university committees and in curriculum development is expected.
We seek an innovative scientist whose interests complement those of current Entomology faculty and may explore the many opportunities for collaboration across a broad group of partners in other departments and research centers on and off campus. Competition for external funding including NSF, NIH and USDA-NIFA to support his or her program is expected. Evidence of effective teaching and productive research is required.
