Ramanujan/ Ramalingaswami/ Inspire Faculty Fellowships 2021 at JNCASR: Apply by Mar 31

Evolutionary and Integrative Biology Unit (EIBU)

 The Evolutionary and Integrative Biology Unit will support individuals with an excellent academic record to apply for Ramanujan/ Ramalingaswami/ Inspire Faculty/ DBT Wellcome Trust Intermediate fellowships in the field of evolutionary and organismal biology. The Unit seeks applications from individuals with a proven track record of high quality research in the broad areas of ecology, evolutionary biology, or animal behaviour, a demonstrated ability to think and research independently, and a strong interest in and passion for teaching and mentoring. We would like to hear from people doing field-based, lab-based, or theoretical research, and especially those employing combinations of the three, relating to the functioning of organisms in an ecological context and/or how such functionality evolves. Applicants with strengths that complement the expertise of existing faculty and thus add a new dimension of research to the Unit while maintaining a synergy with the existing programmes will be preferred. The successful candidate is expected to maintain an active externally funded research programme, teach two courses per year, and mentor graduate students jointly with permanent faculty.
