Faculty Cluster Hire in Response of Biological Communities to Global Change
Department: Geography and Geological Sciences
Employee Category: Faculty
Pay Range: Commensurate with experience
Full/Part Time: Full Time
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.

Geography and Geological Sciences
We seek a colleague who applies geographic information, analysis or modeling to research global change and the interactions with natural or managed biological systems at any scale. Example research programs include but are not limited to: responses of species or communities; impacts on processes such as fluxes of energy, water, carbon, and nutrients on ecosystem services (e.g., food, recreation); or development or assessment of human actions to reduce the impacts of global change on biological systems (such as using forests to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations). This scholar will build upon the department's existing strengths in climate and other natural hazards, water, and geospatial analysis and modeling.https://uidaho.peopleadmin.com/postings/33634
