Assistant Professor – Behavioral Ecologist

POSITION DESCRIPTION: The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position for a Behavioral Ecologist. We are seeking highly collaborative candidates with expertise in the study of behavior of any non-model multi-cellular organism; although we encourage those applicants with expertise in entomology, mammalogy, and other non-aquatic vertebrates.

The anticipated appointment date is fall 2022. The successful candidate is expected to (1) establish an extramurally funded research program; (2) teach and mentor undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students; and (3) have a strong potential for collaboration across ecology and evolutionary biology (EEB). Finally, UTEP is committed to expanding diversity among its faculty and staff, and strongly encourages candidates to apply who will enrich UTEP’s academic and culturally inclusive environment.

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT: The Department of Biological Sciences is among the most productive departments within UTEP. In addition to having doctoral programs in EEB and Bioscience, the Department of Biological Sciences contributes to interdisciplinary programs in Environmental Science and Engineering, Bioinformatics, and Computational Science. Core facilities in the NIH-sponsored Border Biomedical Research Center include capacities for DNA Next-Gen sequencing, bioinformatics, and statistics. In addition, UTEP’s internationally recognized Biodiversity Collections (https://www.utep.edu/biodiversity/) house thousands of specimens, not only providing unique research and teaching opportunities, but the potential for candidates to take on important curatorial roles. Similarly, a new state-of-the-art insectarium and multiple vivaria are also available to researchers. Finally, the 40,000+ acre Indio Mountains Research Station provides unique research and teaching opportunities (https://www.utep.edu/science/indio/). More information is available at the Department of Biological Sciences website.

ABOUT UTEP: The University of Texas at El Paso is America’s leading Hispanic-serving university. Located at the westernmost tip of Texas, where three states and two countries converge along the Rio Grande, UTEP is a public research university that transforms lives. Ninety-four percent of UTEP’s nearly 25,000 students are minorities, and many are the first in their families to go to college. At UTEP, students have access to 168 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in nine colleges and schools. UTEP is the only open-access, top tier Research University in America, yet its retention rates exceed those of selective institutions.

Located in the second-most educated city in Texas, UTEP is recognized as one of the best research universities in the country for connecting students with the community around them. It is one of only 28 institutions in the U.S. and three in Texas to hold both top tier research and community engagement distinctions from the Carnegie Foundation.

UTEP advances discovery of public value and positively impacts the health, culture, education and economy of the community it serves. With more than $108 million in total annual research expenditures, the University is ranked among the top 5% of colleges and universities in research and fifth in Texas for federal research expenditures at public universities.

The University employs approximately 4,000 faculty, staff and students. It has one of the lowest out-of-pocket costs of any research university in the U.S., underscoring its commitment to offer an exceptional education at a great value. Almost 25% of graduates from the poorest backgrounds reach the top income quintile, placing UTEP in the top 10 universities in America for social mobility.
