The Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, and Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at Purdue University invite applicants for up to three faculty positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, rank to be commensurate with experience, and departmental appointments to align with candidates’ expertise and interests. Applications are welcomed from researchers in all areas with relevance to the Origins of Life, including but not limited to evolutionary biology, phylogenetics, computational biology, molecular biology, microbiology, synthetic biology, prebiotic chemistry, biocatalysis, astrochemistry, self replicating and evolutionary systems, astrobiology, biogeochemistry, physical processes related to abiogenesis, and planetary habitability. Experimental, computational, observational, and theoretical scientists are encouraged to apply. Applicants that work across multiple disciplines or work to develop interdisciplinary collaborations are especially encouraged to apply.
Broadly speaking, the Origins of Life search will consider fields of research and processes related to how life first evolved on earth, how life continues to evolve, and whether and where life exists elsewhere in the universe and how it informs the origins of life on earth.
Applications will be reviewed beginning November 1, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled.
