We also invite biological science scholars whose research lies at the interface with the social sciences. A Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment. Senior candidates should have a distinguished publication record with experience with collaborative research projects that bridge the life sciences and social and behavioral sciences, evidence of both graduate and undergraduate teaching excellence, and a strong record of attracting external grants to fund their research.

The University of Illinois is positioned to be a global leader in this emerging area of research bridging campus strengths in the social, behavioral and biological sciences and has a significant research culture and resources in the Institute for Genomic Biology and the Beckman Institute. These positions are part of a new multi-year hiring program at Illinois that focuses on (a) Information and Technology, (b) Health and Wellness, (c) Energy and Sustainability, (d) Economic Development, and (e) Social Equality and Cultural Understanding.
