Faculty Positions in Stream Ecology and Ecohydrology
The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites applications for two tenure-track positions at the ASSISTANT PROFESSOR level expected to begin August 16, 2015. These positions are part of a campus initiative centered on Energy and the Environment and a campus-based cluster hire in Water and Land Sustainability (http://provost.illinois.edu/communication/clusterhiring.html).
The Stream Ecology hire will be expected to establish a research program that could include (but not be limited to) topics such as nutrient cycling, effects of agricultural runoff and nutrient input on ecosystem services of streams, links between riparian areas and stream ecosystems, ecological restoration of aquatic habitats, or impacts of climate change on sustainability of stream ecosystems. Emphasis on mitigating the negative impacts of increasing human populations on aquatic ecosystems, the conservation of ecological integrity, and defining land use impacts on stream resources or water quality would also be of interest. Full details at http://go.illinois.edu/F1400154
The Ecohydrology hire will be expected to establish a research program with an emphasis on coupled hydrological and ecological processes involving water, energy, and material fluxes at scales ranging from watersheds to regions. The ideal candidate will combine field-based methods, data-model integration, and data-assimilation of temporal and spatial data to improve understanding and prediction of coupled processes at multiple scales and in the context of global environmental change. Full details at http://go.illinois.edu/F1400171
A Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment and postdoctoral experience is preferred. Successful candidates will be expected to develop an externally funded research program and teach at undergraduate and graduate levels.
