We invite applications for a tenure-track position in Limnology / Freshwater Biology, at the level of Assistant or early Associate Professor. We are searching broadly for an individual who will establish an innovative, high-profile research program addressing key concepts and questions in ecology and/or evolution. Research should focus on freshwater systems, but can address any level of biological organization (organism/population/community/ecosystem/ landscape/biosphere) and can include empirical and/or theoretical approaches. The appointed faculty member will be expected to establish an independent, externally-funded, and internationally recognized research program at the cutting edge of freshwater science. We are especially interested in candidates who will interact widely and embrace a culture of collaboration within and across departments.  Contributions to undergraduate and graduate teaching in ecology and/or evolution are expected, with the use of modern active learning techniques.  The successful candidate will contribute to acentury-long Cornell tradition of teaching in Limnology / Freshwater Biology.


A Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment. Applicants should have demonstrated excellence in research in freshwater systems, strong interest in collaboration, and a dedication to teaching. Postdoctoral experience is highly desirable.
