Position Announcements

Assistant Professor, Global Environmental Change

Assistant Professor Global Environmental Change and Human Well-Being As one of the leading land-grant institutions in the nation, North Carolina State University is proud to announce the second phase of hiring in the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, a cluster hire program spanning academic colleges and other partners to enhance interdisciplinary research strengths and the development of innovative curricula. To date, 24 of 38 faculty positions have been filled in 12 clusters of scholars. (see http://workthatmatters.ncsu.edu/)

As part of this university-wide program, the Department of Biological Sciences, the Department of Applied Ecology, and the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources have formed a cluster in “Global Environmental Change and Human Well-Being.” We hired two senior faculty for this cluster last year. Building on this successful first round of hiring, we are currently hiring one Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences to complete this cluster of three faculty. We seek leaders in any area of evolutionary biology or ecology under this theme. Although we are targeting an Assistant Professor, exceptional applicants at the Associate or Full Professor rank will be considered. Successful applicants are expected to have a strong vision for their vibrant research program, a commitment to leadership in the area of Global Environmental Change, and commitment to excellence and innovation in graduate and/or undergraduate education.

This cluster will strengthen and bridge a broad range of emerging initiatives at NC State including: 1) the Southeast Climate Science Center; 2) the NC Museum of Natural Sciences; and 3) programs in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (for information on the Global Environmental Change cluster and additional relevant cross-cutting programs see http://www.theglobalchangeforum.org/clusterhire/).
