A tenure-track position is open in The Mitrani Department of Desert Ecology at the Jacob Blaustein Institutes of Desert Research of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

We seek candidates whose main interests are in rangeland ecology, their conservation
and management, and/or plant-animal interactions. Research will be expected to focus on one or more of the following areas: sustainable livestock production systems and their restoration, their interactions with forage crops, cropping systems and natural pastures, and integrate these with other departmental fields of research including ecology, physiology, nutrition, genetic, and behavior, of large domestic and wild mammals in arid and semi-arid environments. The planned starting date for the successful candidate is April 1, 2015. However, the search will continue until the position is filled. Candidates should have post-doctoral experience and are expected to contribute to our new graduate program in Ecology, Conservation Biology, and Management.

Applications should include a current CV, list of publications, summary of research interests, summary of teaching interests, and the work and email addresses of three referees from whom the candidate has requested letters of recommendation. All material, including the letters of reference requested, should be submitted in English by July 10, 2014 (but will be accepted after that date if no suitable candidate is found). Submit applications to: Prof. Berry Pinshow, Search Committee Chair, Mitrani Department of Desert Ecology, Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, 84990 Midreshet Ben-Gurion, ISRAEL.
