This is an internal search for the Joel Keizer Endowed Chair in Theoretical and Computational Biology.
The holder of the Joel Keizer Endowed Chair in Theoretical and Computational Biology will be a senior faculty member in the Department of Evolution and Ecology and/or the Department of Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior in the College of Biological Sciences (CBS), whose specialty is in the area of theoretical and computational biology and whose distinguished scholarship is nationally recognized.
The Joel Keizer Endowed Chair term is for five years and then the chair is ineligible to apply again for seven years.
The endowment payout will support the chair’s efforts in research, teaching and service and further the mission of the Department of Evolution and Ecology and/or Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior, the College of Biological Sciences, and the campus.

Responsibilities of the Endowed Chair:
• Engage in teaching and scholarly activities focused in the area of theoretical and computational biology.
• Teach a normal CBS undergraduate course load (as determined by teaching guidelines in place at the time) in the Department of Evolution and Ecology and/or Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior, and if possible given research and undergraduate teaching workload, teach graduate courses in relevant graduate groups or programs.
• Conduct research on theoretical and computational biology and perform service to the Department of Evolution and Ecology and/or Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior and the broader community in which it is situated.
• Provide leadership in the area of theoretical and computational biology and be fully engaged in activities in the Department of Evolution and Ecology and/or Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior.
• Enhance the academic and intellectual life of the campus as a whole.
