Professor of Ecology, Kansas State University

The Division of Biology at Kansas State University invites applications for a faculty position in Ecology, starting in fall 2018, at the level of Professor with tenure, although applications from highly-qualified candidates at the level of Associate Professor are also welcome. We seek candidates with expertise that will complement a well-established and diverse ecology group in the Division of Biology, and contribute to the highly productive, internationally-recognized Konza Prairie grassland ecology research program. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience in grassland and/or savanna biomes and expertise in plant or consumer population and/or community ecology, plant-consumer interactions, or research at the interface of community and ecosystem ecology. In addition to conducting research in his/her area of expertise, the successful candidate will participate fully as a core investigator in the highly collaborative NSF-funded Konza Prairie Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) program (lter.konza.ksu.edu), and contribute to graduate and undergraduate instruction in the Division (www.ksu.edu/biology). The successful candidate will have a strong record of research productivity, and the ability to provide leadership in interdisciplinary research and develop collaborations across a range of ecological disciplines. A Ph.D. or equivalent, and an academic record commensurate with a tenured senior faculty appointment, is required. Continue reading
