Primary Purpose of the Organizational Unit
The Department of Biology at UNCG is committed to providing excellent and comprehensive instruction at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. We offer a full range of courses to students pursuing a degree in Biology or Medical Technology, as well as to non-biology majors interested in the biological sciences. Biology majors have many options available to them, including the option to pursue degree concentrations in Biotechnology, Environmental Biology, or Human Biology. Biology students are encouraged to gain research experience through independent study with a faculty member, and to develop strong communication skills with writing- and speaking- intensive lecture and laboratory courses. Graduates of the Biology program at UNCG find employment in a wide range of fields and are well prepared for further study in graduate school or in health related professions such as medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine. 
The Department’s excellence in education is complemented by highly active research programs in environmental and behavioral ecology, evolution, population biology, and cell and developmental biology. Biology faculty members publish regularly in leading scientific journals and have earned national and international prominence with their research activities. Moreover, faculty in the Department have been very successful in obtaining external funding to support their research and have been awarded research grants from various agencies including the EPA, NIH, NSF, and USDA.
Position Summary
The Department of Biology (https://biology.uncg.edu/about/the-department/ ) at the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG) seeks an innovative biologist in any biological subdiscipline at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor rank who studies plant and/or pollinator biology. With nearly all flowering plants requiring pollinators, the pollination crisis is impacting both human and environmental health. Therefore, we are seeking an individual to take an intellectual leadership role in UNCG’s plant and pollinator research including our state of the art Plant and Pollinator Center (PPC;https://biology.uncg.edu/ppc/ ), integrate their work with our current strengths (e.g., honey bee microbiome, orphan crops, plant physiological and community ecology), and fit into the Department of Biology’s highly collaborative environment. We are searching broadly for a candidate who works at any scale from molecules to landscapes, can integrate with other approaches to unlock the biology of plants, pollinators, and/or their interactions, and to contribute to solving the growing global problem of pollination and food security in the face of climate change. The Assistant Professor position will be tenure track and Associate and Full Professor rank will be tenured and provide leadership opportunities at the Plant and Pollinator Center and in developing priorities for UNCG’s development campaign. Exceptional candidates will be considered for the Florence Shaeffer Distinguished Professorship in the Sciences.
