Subject: Job: Asst Professor Landscape Ecology: Tenure Track Clemson Baruch

The Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation at Clemson
University is seeking applications for a 12-month tenure-track (research
and extension) position in Landscape Ecology at the Assistant Professor
level. Potential candidates should demonstrate interests related to
Landscape Ecology that complement existing faculty interests at the Baruch
Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science (BICEFS). Candidates should
demonstrate use or development of technology related to environmental
monitoring and modeling, that include, but are not limited to, urban
systems, invasive species, water resources, water quality, land use,
forestry, and/or climate change. The incumbent will enhance Clemson's
Cooperative Extension Service mission by working with a team dedicated to
developing sensor and database technologies to effectively and efficiently
quantify hydrological and ecological processes in South Carolina, as well
as to work among the various disciplines that exist within the Clemson
Cooperative Extension Service. The incumbent will be stationed at BICEFS (
http://www.clemson.edu/public/rec/baruch/), located in Georgetown, SC, but
will work with research and extension personnel across the state.


The incumbent will be expected to develop a vigorous, externally funded
research program in landscape ecology that includes the development and/or
application of environmental sensor technology and data management at
various spatial scales. Possible focal areas include but are not limited to
monitoring impacts associated with natural and anthropogenic disturbances
to the landscape, impacts of climate and land use changes to the state's
natural resources, understanding urban ecosystems, effects of invasive
species on ecosystem function, or quantifying ecosystem resilience from
natural and anthropogenic disturbances. Abundant opportunities exist for
collaborative research that aligns strategically with existing departmental
strengths and Clemson's Intelligent Forest, River, and Farm initiatives.
The faculty member would collaborate with researchers at Clemson's Baruch
Institute and Experimental Station as well as other faculty within
Clemson's Cooperative Extension Service who conduct research and extension
activities related to natural resources management.

PhD in Ecology, Forestry, Natural Resource Conservation or Management,
Ecological Engineering, or other closely related discipline in
environmental science. Undergraduate or graduate training in the field of
natural resources is desired, but not mandatory. Extension and/or teaching
experience; the potential to develop a vigorous, extramurally funded
research program; and a commitment to extension, research, and teaching are
required. A strong publication record and post-doctoral or professional
experience are desirable.

Please email a single PDF file
(lastname_landscape_ecology.pdf) including (1) a letter of interest with
applicant's contact information; (2) names, titles, and contact information
for 3 references; (3) a two-page research plan that describes the
applicant's approach to landscape ecology and integration of environmental
monitoring, modeling, and technology into research; (4) an unofficial
transcript from the PhD degree-granting institution; and (5) a Curriculum
Vitae to:
Ms. Jennifer Hooper, Administrative Assistant/HR
