Tenured/Tenure-Track Faculty Positions

The Eberly College of Science at the Pennsylvania State University, University Park campus, invite outstanding applicants for tenured/tenure-track faculty appointments in the following departments: Astronomy & Astrophysics, Biology, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Statistics.

Tenure/Tenure-Track Faculty in Resistance Evolution

The Pennsylvania State University is adding new, open-rank faculty positions to build on existing excellence and intellectual leadership in evolutionary biology, infectious disease and genomics through a cluster hire. We seek outstanding scientists with broad interdisciplinary interests and a track record of applying theoretical and empirical approaches to gain insights on, and mitigate against, the growing threat of resistance evolution in pathogens (human, animal and plant), cancers, and pest species including insects and weeds. 

Short-term Visitor Opportunities for Fall 2018/Spring 2019/Summer 2019

The Department of Biology seeks to hire numerous lecturers, instructors, and research positions throughout the Summer 2018/Fall 2018/Spring 2019 semesters as short-term visitors.

Research Associate - Evolutionary Risk Analyses in Human Health

The evolution of drug resistance is one of the major challenges for 21st Century Medicine. One approach is to discover new drugs to replace those that are failing, but a much cheaper approach is to use the drugs we already have in ways which slow or prevent resistance emergence (stewardship). We are interested in hiring up to four people who are passionately interested in giving stewardship science a rigorous grounding in modern evolutionary theory.
