Assistant or Associate Professor - Aquatic Microbial Ecology
The Flathead Lake Biological Station (FLBS) of The University of Montana invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in the area of aquatic microbial ecology. We seek a qualified and collaborative microbial ecologist using advanced approaches, including environmental genomics, to address modern questions of microbial structure, function, and interactions in inland waters. We have a special interest in individuals capable of developing research and training programs focused on microbial dynamics in Flathead Lake, its catchment, and its surrounding ecoregion, building on the existing long-term record of ecological dynamics in Flathead Lake. This is a resident position at FLBS with annual teaching duties in the FLBS summer academic program and associated campus programs as well as service obligations to the station, relevant academic unit(s), and university. An individual hired at the former level will be expected to demonstrate strong potential for external research funding; an individual hired at the latter level is expected to have already demonstrated strong funding success.
