We are an integrative biology department that cultivates interactions that traverse traditional interdisciplinary boundaries.  We actively recruit scientists who span spatial, temporal and complexity scales from molecular to cellular to organismal to population to ecosystem, using the most powerful approaches to address Biology’s most pressing questions.

The Department of Biology is conducting an open rank cluster hire to recruit three new faculty who will integrate with any of the department’s four main research foci. We especially encourage applications from candidates who will increase departmental diversity. Click here to view advertisement.

We apply this integrative approach to undergraduate education, developing novel cross-disciplinary courses and exposing our students to cutting edge research through direct involvement in research lab groups.
