Assistant/Associate/Full Professor rank to study plant and/or pollinator biology @ UNCG, USA

You are here:

The Department of Biology ( 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;, 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.

Candidates must hold or anticipate a Doctorate in Biology or related discipline when starting the position on 8/1/22

Inquiries should be sent to Dr. Sally Koerner (, chair of the search committee.
