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 two searches to recruit faculty working in the areas of Cell and Molecular Biology and Animal Behavior in 2019-2020.  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.
