Assistant Professor in the field of Disease Ecology.

The Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology seeks a tenure-track faculty member at the Assistant Professor level in the field of Disease Ecology. We seek applicants whose research focuses on empirical questions relating to pathogen/parasite ecology, host-pathogen dynamics, or the influences of infections on host behavior and/or ecology. Applicants should complement existing strengths in epidemiology, mathematical modeling, ecology and evolution, or global change biology. The successful candidate will build an interdisciplinary research program focused on questions of disease ecology in natural and/or managed populations (including in scope the ecology of diseases of human and microbial populations).

We welcome applicants who can leverage the wealth of assembled expertise in related fields across the UT system, and who can collaborate with some of the many health- and disease-focused researchers at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis [NIMBioS], the UT One Health Initiative [UT OHI], and the nearby Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Applicants may also be able to exploit our nearby field resources (including Great Smoky Mountains National Park and national forests and natural areas), extensive biodiversity collections, and our advanced computational and sequencing facilities.
