*Assistant Professor of Applied Ecology and Sustainable Management,
Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management (9-month
tenure track; 0.70 I, 0.30 R)*
The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management (NREM
<http://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/nrem/>) within the College of Tropical
Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR
<http://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/site/default.aspx>) at the University of Hawaiʻi
Mānoa 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 exciting, interdisciplinary department that
emphasizes the science and management of natural 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 Hawaiʻi is an EEO/AA
*Overview*: Terrestrial and wildlife ecology and management are rapidly
growing fields in Hawai`i and throughout the Pacific Island Region directly
aligned with sustainability 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
longstanding need to: (*i*) address questions regarding the ecology and
management of non-native species, and (*ii*) identify innovative solutions
to conservation and restoration, including non-native game management in
Hawaii and throughout the Pacific Island Region.
*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 strengthen and link CTAHR to University-wide initiatives
in sustainability and resiliency.
*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 prioritize 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 department,
college, and university services and governance.
1. Ph.D. in an academic field emphasizing wildlife ecology and
management or natural resource management such as zoology, natural
resources, environmental science, ecology, forestry or related area from a
college of university of recognized standing.
2. Demonstrated ability as a teacher.
3. Demonstrated scholarly achievement.
4. Poise and good address for meeting and conferring with others.
1. University teaching experience.
