*The Department of
Environmental Science
in the College of Arts and Sciences at American
University in Washington,
DC* invites applications for up to three tenure-track or
tenured Assistant/Associate/Full
Professors to form a collaborating research team. We
seek either a group
of researchers who will be hired together, or a senior
individual with
a vision for filling the other positions.

The team’s research
should focus on
environmental science, including but not limited to
ecosystem science,
water resources, climate science, energy use, and
conservation biology.
 We are especially interested in innovative approaches
that investigate
these areas in a urban context, such as heat islands and
air quality, sea
level rise, protection of water resources, and
preservation of urban biodiversity
and ecosystem services.


All applicants should
have a strong record
of (or potential for) externally sponsored research. We
are especially
eager to recruit candidates with established research
partnerships (or
the ability to form such partnerships) in the
Washington, DC area. Candidates
should also have a record of excellence in teaching and
mentoring both
graduate and undergraduate students.  Teaching
responsibilities will
include basic courses in environmental science and more
advanced courses
in the applicant’s area of specialty.  The Ph.D. is
required; post-doctoral
experience is preferred.

At least one appointment
will be at a
senior level with tenure. Preference will be given to
senior candidates
who are able and willing to lead the department.


Applicants should
include a statement
(a joint statement for team applications) of research
outlining the research
focus (or foci) and future plans for developing a
nationally competitive,
externally funded research program at American
University. In addition
to a (joint, if applicable) research statement, each
applicant should include
statements of individual research and teaching
experience, a CV, and the
names of three references not in the proposed team.
Please submit applications
via: http://apply.interfolio.com/25814 [1].
 Review of applications will begin October 24 and
continue until the
position is filled.

American University is a
private institution
within easy reach of the many centers of government,
business, research,
