Clark University's International Development, Community, & Environment
Department (IDCE) seeks a tenure-track Assistant Professor with expertise in
Natural Resources (e.g. water, soil, land, biodiversity, ecological services
including agriculture and/or food systems). This expertise will primarily
support IDCE's pioneering Environmental Science & Policy (ES&P) Program,
extending and complementing IDCE's focal areas in Conservation & Development
and/or Climate Change Impacts & Adaptation. A doctorate in natural science
or engineering is required at the time of appointment. The successful
candidate is expected to help ES&P/IDCE enhance its interdisciplinary
capacity to understand and address complex socio-ecological challenges at
the intersection of science, technology and policy, in domestic and
international settings.

Required are the potential for or demonstrated ability to achieve research
excellence; obtain external funding; and conduct outstanding teaching and
advising. Preference will be given to candidates who demonstrate experience
with policy, practice, or translational research. The successful candidate
should complement departmental strengths not only in ES&P, but in one or
more of the other four IDCE Graduate Programs: International Development &
Social Change; Community Development & Planning; Geographic Information
Science for Development & Environment; and Community & Global Health. Major
responsibilities will include developing and teaching graduate and
undergraduate courses in natural resource science and policy in Clark's BA
Major in Environmental Science, the MS Program in ES&P and the joint MS/MBA
Program in ES&P and Management.

IDCE presents unique collaborative opportunities, including the opportunity
to work with scholars affiliated with diverse academic departments and
research institutes both on and off campus, in particular Clark's renowned
Graduate School of Geography and the George Perkins Marsh Institute;
collaborative research is a hallmark of Clark University.

Clark University embraces equal opportunity as a core value: we believe that
cultivating an environment that embraces and promotes diversity is
fundamental to the success of our students, our employees and our community.
This commitment applies to every aspect of education, services and
employment policies and practices at Clark. Our commitment to diversity
informs our efforts in recruitment, hiring and retention. We are an
affirmative action/equal employment opportunity university and we strongly
encourage members of historically underrepresented groups, inclusive of all
women, to apply.

research and teaching interests, together with contact information for three
