The Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California,

animal models of human disease, parasite and pathogen dynamics in ecological
and evolutionary contexts, and population-level genetic aspects of disease.
Candidates will be required to contribute to our undergraduate and graduate

evolutionary biology and the health sciences.
