Please feel free to contact myself or the hiring committee co-chair Dr. Steve Midway (<>) if you have specific questions. Our first review of applicants will begin on January 1st,  and after this time we will be reviewing new applicants on a rolling basis. If you chose to submit an application after January 1st I would recommend contacting Dr. Midway to let him know when your application will be available for review.

In addition, please share the job ad with interested individuals in your networks and let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks for helping to spread the word.
