Vector Biologist of Plant Pathogens, Assistant Professor

The Department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management at Colorado State University seeks a tenure-track faculty at the assistant professor level to study arthropod vectors of plant pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, and/or nematodes. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an extramurally-funded research program. Possible research areas may include, but are not limited to, epidemiology, evolution, ecology, genetics, molecular biology, behavior, or interactions of arthropod vectors and their pathogens. Outreach and engagement with local/regional vegetable producers is encouraged and excellent opportunities exist for working with vegetable growers in the State on a wide variety of arthropod-vectored plant pathogens. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching in the Department and College. In addition to collaborations with the Department and College, many possibilities for collaborations exist within the Microbiome Cluster, the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology, and the Cell & Molecular Biology Graduate Program. Consistent with the mission of a land-grant university, all faculty members are expected to contribute to education, research/creative performance/scholarship, and service/engagement/outreach functions. The position includes an extension component. The division of the successful candidate’s responsibilities will approximate 25% instruction/advising, 60% research/scholarship, and 15% service/outreach/engagement. At CSU, we consider that a portion of your research/scholarship and your engagement activities will be in support of extension to Colorado agricultural producers.
