Open Huxley Faculty Fellow Position IN EVOLUTION:
The Ecology & Evolutionary Biology Department of Rice University
(http://eeb.rice.edu/) seeks to fill a Huxley Faculty Fellow position.
This non-tenure track faculty position is a two-year appointment and a
third year extension possible, with a possible start date as early as
August 2010. Our prestigious Huxley Fellow Program at Rice University,
Ecology & Evolutionary Biology was established in honor of Julian
Huxley, son of Thomas Huxley, and aims to recruit outstanding
researchers with a PhD and, possibly, some postdoctoral experience,
who merge excellence in teaching (25%) and research (75%). We invite
applications from broadly trained evolutionary biologists with
interests in areas including organismic evolution, molecular
evolution, and evolutionary bioinformatics.
The Huxley Fellows receive faculty status, employee benefits,
competitive salary, and research funds for independent or
collaborative research. Collaborative interests with the existing
faculty are a plus. Previous Huxley fellows who held this position
moved on to tenure track faculty positions at prestigious national and
international universities. Application review will begin immediately,
2010. Rice is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer.

statement of research interests, and three letters of reference to:
