Position Summary

The Department of Biological Science at The University of Tulsa invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in Evolutionary Genomics beginning the fall of 2018. Applicants are expected to have demonstrated interests and expertise integrating the genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and/or venomics of non-model vertebrate organisms.

We are particularly interested in creative and interactive individuals whose research integrates field or collection-based studies with next-generation molecular approaches to address fundamental questions relating to the evolution of novel phenotypes, rapid adaptation, and gene-expression driven differentiation.

Applicants must have a Ph.D., post-doctoral experience, and a substantial record of research excellence. The successful applicant will be expected to establish a vigorous extramurally funded research program involving both undergraduate and graduate students. Teaching responsibilities will include appropriate upper-level/graduate courses in genomics and bioinformatics, in addition to courses in his or her area of expertise. Applications are especially welcomed from candidates that can contribute to the teaching of Tropical Ecology.

The Faculty of Biological Science is in the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences of The University of Tulsa ( and offers BS, MS and PhD degrees.

At present, there are 13 full-time faculty members, 22 MS/PhD students, and approximately 135 undergraduate Biology majors. The department houses a complete genomics core facility including an Illumina MiSeq, Covaris sonicator, ABI capillary sequencer, StepOnePlus real-time PCR system, Agilent Bioanalyzer, and both Nanodrop and Qubit fluorometric quantifiers.
