The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management (NREM)
within the
College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) at the
University of Hawaii
Manoa seeks a new colleague to fill a tenure-track position (9-month,
Assistant Professor
level) in terrestrial and wildlife ecology and management. NREM is an
interdisciplinary department that emphasizes the science and management of
resources and their links to environmental quality. Our mission is to
integrate natural and
social sciences to educate students and global citizens, research
solutions, and extend
information for sustainable use and management of natural resources and the
environment. This position (0.7 FTE Instruction, 0.3 FTE Research) will
teach essential
courses in the undergraduate and graduate programs, and build a research
program to
address strong and longstanding needs related to: (i) the ecology and
management of
non-native species, and (ii) innovative solutions to conservation and
restoration, including
non-native game management in Hawaii and throughout the Pacific Island
Region. Details
at workatuh.hawaii.edu, position number 83785. Application review begins March
15, 2017.
The University of Hawaii is an EEO/AA institution.

Overview: Terrestrial and wildlife ecology and management are rapidly
growing fields in
Hawai`i and throughout the Pacific Island Region directly aligned with
sciences. Non-native, invasive wildlife species, in particular, profoundly
change island
ecosystems and landscapes, and negatively affect the ability to conserve,
restore, and
manage Hawaiian ecosystems effectively. While there is a long history of
work on the
ecology of native species in the region, there is a particularly strong and
need to: (i) address questions regarding the ecology and management of
species, and (ii) identify innovative solutions to conservation and
restoration, including
non-native game management in Hawaii and throughout the Pacific Island

Instruction (70%): Teach courses in the NREM undergraduate curriculum,
which might
include: Environmental Problem Solving (NREM 494) and Wildlife Ecology and
Management (NREM 450), and the NREM graduate curriculum including Landscape
Ecology (NREM 685), Restoration Ecology (NREM 682), and Conservation Biology
(BOT/NREM/ZOOL 690). Advise undergraduate and graduate students. Help to
and link CTAHR to University-wide initiatives in sustainability and
Research (30%): Conduct research on the ecology and management of wildlife
species in
Hawaii and on other Pacific Islands, with special focus on the: (i) ecology
and natural
history of native and non-native wildlife species in the Pacific Region,
(ii) impact and
management of non-native, invasive wildlife, and (iii) conservation and
restoration of native
species and communities threatened by non-native, invasive species. Work
with a diverse
network of stakeholders including state and federal wildlife management
agencies, the
local hunting community, and non-profit organizations to monitor, plan, and
management of native and non-native wildlife in the region. Pursue
competitive extra-
mural grants to fund research in Hawai`i and the Region. Participate in
college, and university services and governance.
