This position advises undergraduate and graduate students in the department, conducts research related to water quality and contributes to service and outreach activities.

The Ecosystem Science and Sustainability department is closely associated with the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory. We are recognized for interdisciplinary research in ecosystem function and ecosystem sustainability, such as sustainability of water, food, and energy systems from technological, social-ecological, and modeling perspectives.
