Hi all,

The University of Washington=E2=80=99s School of Environmental and Forest S=
(SEFS) invites applications for a full-time (9-month; 100% FTE)
tenure-track Assistant Professor (0116) position to begin Autumn 2016. This
position is part of a University of Washington/College of the Environment
initiative to strengthen its teaching and research capability in the areas
of forest ecosystems, renewable energy, and sustainable technologies.

Ideal candidates will integrate forest ecosystem science with perspectives
from one or more other disciplines (e.g., forest management, silviculture,
hydrology, atmospheric sciences, economics) and appreciate the intersection
of basic and applied sciences that characterizes SEFS. A Ph.D. or foreign
equivalent in forestry, ecology, forest management, silviculture, ecosystem
sciences, or a closely related field is required.

The College of the Environment and SEFS (http://www.sefs.washington.edu/)
are dedicated to creating a climate of engagement, actively enlarging the
boundaries of diversity, and highlighting the crucial roles that
under-represented groups play in experiencing, documenting, understanding,
and solving environmental challenges. All applicants must therefore have a
demonstrated willingness to work collaboratively with faculty from a wide
range of disciplines, cultures, and academic backgrounds; and to advise and
teach a graduate and undergraduate student body that is diverse with
respect to socio-economic status, culture and career path.

All University of Washington (UW) faculty engage in teaching, research, and
service. This position requires developing a strong, externally funded
research program. Candidates must demonstrate outstanding potential for
high impact research as judged, in part, by their publication record. There
will be numerous opportunities for interaction and collaboration within
SEFS, in other units of the College of the Environment, across UW, and with
land management agencies. In particular, SEFS partners with the US Forest
Service Pacific Northwest Research Station in the conduct of ecosystem
science research at the Wind River Experimental Forest (WREF;
http://www.sefs.washington.edu/centersPrograms/windriver.shtml). Key assets
at Wind River include a flux tower, a network of permanent forest plots,
and its designation as a core site in the National Ecological Observatory
Network (NEON; http://www.neoninc.org/). The successful candidate will be
expected to organize a portion of their research portfolio around the
facilities at WREF, and to strengthen the ties between WREF, UW, and the
Forest Service. The successful candidate will contribute to existing and
new courses, including field-=C2=ADbased instruction, and expand our educat=
programs. In summary, this person will fill a critical position in our
faculty, provide scientific leadership at the WREF, and strengthen our
research and teaching capabilities in forest ecosystems and ecosystem
