Environmental Sciences (ES) provides broad, comprehensive education in the fundamentals of biology, chemistry, math, physics, and social sciences. The discipline involves the study of interactions between human activities and biological and physical environments on all scales, from the local to the global. ES majors finish their degree with a year-long research project, the senior thesis. Students investigate an environmental issue, design and execute independent research, and present their results in oral and written form. Offered by the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management (ESPM).
The Departments of Integrative Biology (IB) and Molecular & Cell Biology (MCB) at the University of California, Berkeley seek applications for two Assistant Teaching Professor positions in General Biology, with emphasis on (1) Organismal and Evolutionary Biology or (2) Molecular and Quantitative Biology. Based on review for promotion, these full-time positions have the possibility of security of employment, which is the equivalent of tenure.
