The University of Louisville is a metropolitan campus of ca. 23,000 students located a few minutes from downtown. Louisville (pop. 600,000) is a progressive, compassionate, cosmopolitan city that welcomes diversity. The Louisville metropolitan area offers exceptional dining, cultural, and entertainment opportunities, and a relatively low cost of living (https://www.gotolouisville.com/). Louisville’s location provides easy access to research and outdoor recreational opportunities on the Ohio River and surrounding forests, and to local government agencies, NGOs, and medical centers. Several Biology faculty members maintain collaborations, committee appointments, and adjunct positions at other universities, and at the UofL Health Sciences Center campus downtown. The University of Louisville is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity, Americans with Disabilities Employer. We are a vibrant and inclusive community, and we actively seek students interested in contributing to diversity and equal opportunity within higher education.
