Position Summary:
As part of the University of Idaho's focus on sustainability, the College of Science announces a cluster hire focused on the response of biological communities to global change. By hiring a cluster of collaborative faculty, we seek to aim our research infrastructure at the most pressing problems facing humanity over the next decades.

Hires will be at the tenure track assistant professor level, and research pairs or teams are encouraged to apply. We seek highly collaborative and interdisciplinary scientists to establish strong extramurally funded research programs that build on existing strengths and collaborations within the college and university. We welcome applications from scientists with research programs that fit under the broad umbrella of this cluster and anticipate a hire within each of four departments within the college—Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geography and Geological Sciences, and Mathematics and Statistical Science. The College of Science places a high priority on increasing the diversity of faculty, and we are committed to hiring, supporting, and retaining a diverse team of researchers for this cluster hire.
