The Department of Biological Sciences at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) invites applications for a Landscape Ecologist, with a preference for a researcher that works in extreme environments including, but not limited, to the Arctic and Chihuahuan Desert, for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level. We seek a colleague with the ability to engage in collaborative approaches to environmental questions with expertise in areas such as global change biology, the intersection between ecosystems and society, or ecological restoration. We particularly encourage individuals that use geospatial technologies and approaches (including GIS, remote sensing, spatial statistics, and/or modelling) in their research to apply. The successful candidate is expected to develop an inclusive, independent research program and will be required to mentor and teach courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Anticipated appointment date is fall 2021.
Applicants must have a Ph.D., postdoctoral experience, a strong record of research accomplishments, and the capacity to secure extramural funding.
Review of applications will begin immediately, and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
