Plant Physiological Ecologist

The Department of Ecology at Montana State University seeks an Assistant Professor of Plant Physiological Ecology with a promising research and teaching record focused on responses of vegetation to climate and global change (to commence fall 2019). We are particularly interested in candidates whose research examines one or more of the following: (1) effects of global change on plant physiology and con- sequences for vegetation composition, plant quality, and/or productivity; (2) mechanisms of vegetation response including the interactive effects of water, light, temperature, and nutrients; (3) linkages between plant- and species-level physiological response and patterns and processes at broad spatial and temporal scales; and (4) use of mechanistic simulation models or other quantitative tools to forecast vegetation pattern under global change. The successful candidate is expected to maintain an excellent program of research and publication with strong commitment to quality undergraduate and graduate education. The Department of Ecology is committed to faculty diversity, and women and minority candidates are especially encouraged to apply.
