Summary of Position

The Department of Natural Resources and the Environment seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor who conducts field-based research on large mammals that includes a well-established international component. We are particularly interested in candidates whose research addresses human dimensions of wildlife conservation and who will develop a local or regional component to their research program. We encourage applications from researchers who work across spatial scales and use transdisciplinary methods to tackle questions related to wildlife-human interactions, community-based conservation, protected area management, and/or connectivity science. We particularly seek candidates who collaborate with a range of stakeholder groups across cultures and knowledge systems and whose research support decision-making in biodiversity conservation. Preference will be given to individuals whose research foci complement those of existing faculty in the department and college, and who will bring new methodologies and disciplinary training to existing expertise. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a vibrant, externally supported research program, teach undergraduate and graduate courses appropriate to their expertise and consistent with Departmental needs, and participate in University service.
