The Ecology Department at Montana State University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Coldwater Fish Ecology and Management. We seek candidates with a promising research and teaching record focused on coldwater fishes, their ecology and management, responses to environmental change and increased angling pressure, habitat use and restoration, interactions with other species, and applied uses of such information to achieve societal goals. The successful candidate is expected to maintain an excellent program of research and publication funded by extramural and competitive grants and to support and mentor graduate students. The Department of Ecology is highly committed to quality undergraduate and graduate education, and the successful candidate is expected to participate actively in the department curriculum. The specific teaching assignment is negotiable with respect to candidate interests and departmental needs but will probably include Ichthyology, Introduction to Fish and Wildlife Management, and a graduate-level course that complements and expands our existing graduate course offerings. 

Because increasing the diversity of the profession is one of our strategic priorities, women and underrepresented minorities in ecological sciences are particularly encouraged to apply. 

We seek individuals who work professionally and effectively with diverse individuals, possess effective interpersonal, written, and verbal communication skills, and can contribute positively to the academic success of the students and the mission of Montana State University.
