Preference will be given to physiologists with a background in invertebrate zoology, evolutionary biology, gene expression, or developmental biology, although other fields will be considered, and who can provide local research and educational opportunities for students. UAS sits on the shores of the Alexander Archipelago – an expansive and relatively pristine marine ecosystem of significant ecological and cultural importance – and we particularly encourage applicants drawn to the extraordinary opportunities for marine research that our location provides.
