**The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University 
of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the National Institute for Mathematical and 
Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) seek an outstanding scholar to fill a 
tenure-track position in Spatial Biology at the assistant professor 
level. We particularly welcome applicants who focus on research 
questions that involve collection, analysis, interpretation and modeling 
of spatial data to understand biological processes at any scale above 
the level of that within a single individual. For example, we invite 
applications from candidates with experience in spatial statistics in 
environmental or conservation systems including spatial aspects of 
disease, experience in GIS/Spatial DataBases/remote sensing and 
application to human/environment systems (including urban), 
phylogeography, experience in continent-scale large-data analytics as 
for example arising from NEON, as well as many other topics. The primary 
appointment will be in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary 
Biology and the individual will also be an affiliated faculty member of 
NIMBioS. The position could, depending upon the applicant, be made 
jointly with other units including Geography. The successful applicant 
will benefit from opportunities to collaborate with an active research 
community in quantitative biology and computational spatial sciences 
scientists in the University and NIMBioS and at nearby Oak Ridge 
National Laboratory. The EEB faculty is very interactive and 
interdisciplinary and Knoxville itself is a vibrant, affordable, 
family-friendly community benefiting from a wealth of nearby natural 
areas (Great Smoky Mountains National Park, nearby National Forests, 
State Parks, etc). The Knoxville campus of the University of Tennessee 
is seeking candidates who have the ability to contribute in meaningful 
ways to the diversity and intercultural goals of the University.

Expectations for a successful candidate include an exceptional record of 
scientific accomplishment, an ability to develop a productive, 
externally-funded research program, an ability to mentor students from 
diverse backgrounds, excellent communication skills and application of 
effective teaching strategies. Interested applicants should send a cover 
letter, CV, statement of research accomplishment and plans, a 
description of teaching experiences and interests and the names and 
contact information of at least three individuals who could write 
letters of reference to SpatialBiologySearch from utk.edu. Applicants must 
have a PhD or equivalent. Applications will be reviewed beginning 
December 15, 2015, and will continue until filled, with a position start 
date of August 2016.
