Fullerton, invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position
at the Assistant Professor level to begin August 2003 in INSECT (or
other terrestrial arthropods) BIOLOGY.  Preferred research areas
include, but are not limited to physiological ecology, behavioral

inquiry-based, lower division core course in either Evolution and
Biodiversity or Principles of Physiology and Ecology.  CSUF is located
in a coastal Mediterranean climate within two hours of desert, montane,
