*The University and Region:*

Boise State University, powered by creativity and innovation, stands 
uniquely positioned in the Northwest as a metropolitan research 
university of distinction. Recognized as a university on the move, Boise 
State is the largest university in Idaho, with enrollment of more than 
22,000 students. The University is located in the heart of Idaho’s 
capital city, a growing metropolitan area that serves as the government,

*About the Position:*

Interested applicants are encouraged to apply for a tenure-track faculty 
position in human-environment systems science. Competitive candidates 
will demonstrate capacity, expertise, and interest in quantitative 
approaches to analyzing the interlinkages among social, biological, and 
physical systems, with the goal of addressing some of our most pressing 
sustainability challenges. We seek candidates who develop and apply 
innovative strategies to describe, understand, and predict the dynamics 
of human-environment systems, including but not limited to, agent-based, 
dynamical, process-based and geospatial modeling, mixed-methods, and 
other innovative techniques for integrating models or data. Candidates 
with training and skills from the disciplines of geography, geoscience, 
climate science, social sciences, engineering, and computational and 
data sciences are particularly encouraged.

The new faculty member will work closely with existing faculty in 
ourHuman-Environment Systems <https://cid.boisestate.edu/hes/>Institute. 
This position is part of a statewide, NSF-funded, effort to build 
expertise in human-environment systems science. With Boise State’s new 
College of Innovation and Design as a home, the candidate will have the 
opportunity to collaboratively build an integrated research and teaching 
center focusing on coupled human-environment systems. The center weaves 
together biophysical and social science knowledge and skills to develop 
solutions to society’s most challenging environmental problems. Boise 
State University is committed to building a culturally diverse faculty 
and strongly encourages applications from female and minority candidates.

*Research: *

Successful candidates will be able to 1) build a strong collaborative 
(team science) research program that integrates the social, physical, 
and computational sciences and engineering, 2) secure extramural 
funding, 3) create knowledge to meet challenges at the human-environment 
interface, 4) disseminate that knowledge through high-impact 
publications and other, less traditional, mechanisms, and 5) help 
develop a leading program in human-environment systems science. We are 
particularly interested in applicants who can contribute to Boise 
State’s academic excellence by developing an integrated program of 
research, teaching, and service that also broadens participation and 
diversity to more effectively address the complex challenges of coupled 
human-environment systems.



The successful candidate will have a strong commitment to high quality 
education and develop innovative approaches to teaching undergraduate 
and graduate students. Successful candidates may develop hybridized, 
flipped, and/or online class formats as well as short courses and 
workshops. Courses will be offered through the College of Innovation and 
Design and collaborating departments. Expected teaching load is 
nominally two classes per year. Teaching responsibilities will be 
aligned with the candidates' training and will emphasize the interface 
of human-environment sciences.

We welcome applicants at the Assistant Professor level and also 
encourage exceptional candidates exhibiting a proven record of 
excellence in obtaining extramural research funding, scholarly 
productivity, and teaching at the Associate Professor level.
