The Department of Natural Resources Science (NRS) at the University of Rhode Island (URI) invites applications for an exciting academic year, tenure-track Assistant Professor specializing in applied quantitative ecology. The successful candidate will be based within a vibrant department that consists of 18 full-time faculty members conducting cutting-edge research and over 300 talented and engaged undergraduates majoring in either Wildlife and Conservation Biology or Environmental Science and Management. We also have a strong graduate program with students majoring in either M.E.S.M (a non-thesis professional M.S. program in environmental science and management), or thesis-based research in the Biological and Environmental Sciences for M.S. and Ph.D. students. We invite individuals to apply who have a strong commitment to teaching, research, experiential learning, and mentorship at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidate will generate an internationally recognized, extramural-funded program of research and scholarship investigating the applied quantitative ecology of terrestrial vertebrates. The candidate is expected to contribute to an undergraduate course in biometrics, a graduate-level course in quantitative ecology, and other courses that incorporate contemporary statistical approaches and quantitative technological advances in a well-balanced workload that prioritizes research. Priority will be given to candidates who show a commitment to broadening participation of members of underrepresented groups in science through research, pedagogical practices, and public engagement, and who would contribute to University of Rhode Island's goals of increasing diversity, equity and inclusion. Application Deadline: search will remain open until position is filled. First consideration will be given to applications received by 15 October 2023. Applications received after 15 October 2023 may not be given full consideration. Start date for this position is negotiable.
