The Department of Biology at Colorado State University, located in Fort Collins, Colorado, is seeking applications for an Assistant Professor researching plant form and function to enable creative solutions for a sustainable future. We are seeking an individual applying molecular biology-based research approaches to study plant metabolism, cell biology, physiology, and development. Potential areas of investigation could include, but are not limited to, the following: plant responses and adaptation to climate change and other abiotic stressors, mutualistic plant-microbe interactions, phytohormone signaling and development, plant metabolic engineering, or plant chromatin biology.
The successful candidate will develop a research program that interfaces with an integrative and collaborative department of evolutionary biologists, ecologists, geneticists, molecular biologists, physiologists, and organismal biologists, working at scales from molecules to ecosystems. Teaching responsibilities will reflect the candidate’s area of expertise but may include existing and/or new courses in areas such as plant physiology, cell biology, or developmental biology. The successful candidate will be expected to make impactful service contributions to the university, their academic community, and broader outreach efforts. Candidates who can enhance the department’s commitment to diversity through research, teaching, and outreach are encouraged to apply.
About Biology Department at Colorado State University
The Department of Biology at Colorado State University (CSU) is one of eight departments in the College of Natural Sciences. The Department has a strong commitment to undergraduate and graduate teaching, as well as an international reputation for excellence in research across a broad range of disciplines, including cell and molecular biology, physiology of plants or animals, animal behavior, ecology, evolutionary biology and computational/theoretical biology. The Department of Biology is housed in a state-of-the-art life sciences research facility that opened in 2017. As a land grant University and as nationally recognized innovators, we are committed to the foundational principles of diversity and inclusion. We recognize that our institutional success depends on how well we welcome, value, and affirm all members of the Colorado State community and how we represent diverse perspectives in our teaching, research, and service throughout all disciplines. Diversity and inclusion resources at CSU include The Institute for Learning and Teaching (tilt.colostate.edu), Principles of Community (inclusiveexcellence.colostate.edu/resources/principles-of-community), and the Office of Inclusive ...Excellence (inclusiveexcellence.colostate.edu). Colorado State University is a land-grant Carnegie Class Doctoral/Research-Extensive University. In the last decade, CSU has produced record enrollment, built on all-time highs in student diversity and student success; record fundraising far outpacing ambitious goals; groundbreaking research driven by a highly productive faculty; a campus revitalized by a transformational building campaign; and, perhaps most important, an unrivaled learning environment where nine of 10 recent graduates say they would choose CSU again and rate their education as excellent.
