The Nicholas School of the Environment (NSOE) invites applications for tenure-track positions at the Assistant Professor level in three areas: Coastal/Marine Climate Change; Geochemistry of Earth-Water-Air Systems; and Spatial Ecology and Ecosystem Management at the Landscape Scale. These positions are part of a cluster hiring initiative focused on climate and contribute to Duke University's institution-wide commitment to addressing climate change. We recognize that cluster hires can promote intellectual synergy and provide support for new faculty from diverse backgrounds. (Specifics of individual positions can be found at AcademicJobsOnline.) We will consider joint appointments with other departments, institutes, and centers at Duke University. Appointments at levels higher than Assistant Professor will be considered in extraordinary cases.

We are strongly committed to diversification of our faculty, and to becoming an inclusive, antiracist community. Examples of ongoing programming to promote these values may be found at DEI Nicholas School and DEI Marine Lab. We are a vibrant academic community with cutting-edge facilities located on our main campus in Durham and at the Duke University Marine Laboratory in Beaufort, NC.

We support academic programs for undergraduates, professional master's, and PhD students. Our interdisciplinary scholarship encompasses basic and applied research in the physical, biological, and social sciences to address the complex environmental challenges facing our society. We apply our research expertise to create solutions to the most pressing environmental and climate justice issues facing our world. We encourage and support innovative research interests and entrepreneurial efforts and we are driven to translate these discoveries into new knowledge, technologies, and solutions that benefit society.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS: Document Requirements: Complete applications consist of: 1) One-page cover letter; 2) Curriculum Vitae; 3) Up to three publications or manuscripts; 4) A statement of research interests, accomplishments, and future research plans (up to 2 pages); 5) A statement of teaching and mentoring activities or plans (up to 2 pages); 6) A statement describing contributions to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion, including activities to date, and ideas for advancing equity and inclusion in your academic portfolio at Duke (up to 2 pages); and 7) Names and contact information for three individuals willing to provide professional reference letters.

The search committees, advised by the NSOE Associate Dean for DEI, will begin reviewing applications December 1, 2022 and will continue until the positions are filled.
