Faculty Fellows in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology

2020 FACULTY FELLOW in ECOLOGY & EVOLUTION - Call for applicants:

The BioSciences Department of Rice University seeks to fill a Faculty Fellow position in ECOLOGY or EVOLUTION. The position is a two-year appointment with a third year extension possible, with a tentative start date of September 1, 2020. The start date is flexible but the Fellow will be expected to start during fall semester 2020. Our prestigious EEB Faculty Fellowship Program aims to recruit outstanding researchers with a PhD and postdoctoral experience, who merge excellence in teaching and research. Our EEB Fellows receive faculty status, employee benefits, competitive salary, and research funds for independent or collaborative research. Collaborative interests with the existing faculty in the EEB research area are a plus. An application (curriculum vitae, statement of research interests and statement of teaching) and three letters of recommendation should be submitted via RiceWorks (https://jobs.rice.edu/postings/23761).

The EEB Fellows program, in which recent Ph.D. recipients are appointed for 2-3 year (non-tenure) faculty positions in BioSciences, is an outstanding early-career pathway for scientists who pursue their own independent research programs in ecology and/or evolution while teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. EEB Fellows do not have an advisor (as a postdoc would), but are expected to collaborate broadly across BioSciences. EEB Fellows are selected as a result of a competitive application process. Interested parties can check RICEWorks to see if BioSciences is currently accepting applications for prospective fellows.
