Two positions for Assistant Professor of Physiology:
Each position is a 12-month, tenure-track position in the Department of Animal Sciences, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, at the University of Florida with a 70% research and 30% teaching assignment. The major duties of each position will be to develop and implement an internationally-recognized and extramurally-funded position in an area of mammalian physiology with relevance to livestock production. Research that also has relevance to human health is suitable. The research may be on the physiology of reproduction, lactation, growth, muscle, gastrointestinal function, exercise or immune responses. The key determinant is a focus on an area of physiology that will lead to fundamental discoveries to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of livestock production and that will complement existing faculty strengths. The faculty member will be expected to recruit and advise graduate students, develop a nationally and internationally recognized research program, publish study results in peer-reviewed journals, and procure extramural funding. The teaching program will include responsibility for one course in animal physiology or related field at the undergraduate and graduate level. The faculty member will participate in extension programs as appropriate. Qualifications are a Ph.D. (foreign equivalent acceptable) in animal science, physiology, cell biology, or other related discipline. Postdoctoral experience is highly recommended.
Screening of applicants will begin December 1, 2012. The positions will be available February 1, 2013 and will be filled as soon thereafter as an acceptable applicant is available.
