Job Wanted: Assistant/Associate Professor in Sustainability Science
The Department of Ecosystem Science and Sustainability at Colorado State University (CSU) invites applications for a tenure track professor in Sustainability Science at the rank of assistant or associate professor. We seek applications from candidates who have expertise in the role of how socio-economic factors constrain and provide opportunities for solving current sustainability challenges for social-ecological systems across multiple spatial and temporal scales.
We are especially interested in applicants with research that addresses the development of formal criteria and metrics, e.g., Life Cycle Assessment, to quantify and model sustainability. An emphasis on climate, land use and/or land cover change as constraints on sustainability coupled with experience planning and implementing sustainability programs with government or corporate organizations and/or multiple stakeholders, and experience working with ecosystem scientists and/or hydrologists on trans disciplinary research are desirable.
The Department offers B.S. and M.S. degrees in Watershed Science, a B.S. degree in Ecosystem Science and Sustainability, and a Masters in Greenhouse Gas Management and Accounting. A Ph.D. program in Earth Resources with a Watershed Science specialization is housed in the Department of Geosciences, and faculty also advise M.S.
Required Job Qualifications: 1) A Ph.D. in ecology, ecosystem science, or a related field. 2) Experience with analytical and modeling approaches for assessing socio-ecological systems and ecosystem services. 3) Demonstrated record of high-impact interdisciplinary research. 4) Evidence of effective teaching skills, an understanding of the land-grant mission, and a strong interest in contributing to our academic programs. Preferred Job Qualifications: 1) Strong publication record. 2) Demonstrated ability or potential for generating external funding. 3) Demonstrated ability to communicate scientific knowledge to a range of stakeholders. 4) Evidence of the ability to conduct independent and collaborative research with other faculty and natural resource professionals, develop and maintain an active research program, publish in leading scientific journals, and secure extramural funding to support research. 5) Demonstrated teaching effectiveness at the graduate and undergraduate levels. 6) Experience fostering undergraduate research excellence is also strongly desired.
