The School of the Environment at Washington State University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Wildlife Ecology (Global Change), to begin August 16, 2023. We seek applicants who conduct research to understand wildlife responses to temporally or spatially changing landscapes and climates, and whose research will inform conservation and management of species under non-stationary conditions.We are particularly interested in candidates who can integrate mechanistic and/or modeling techniques with field research, and that can address how wildlife will respond to emerging novel conditions at multiple scales or levels of organization (individual behavior to community responses). Because landscape and climate change disproportionately impact underserved human communities (e.g., indigenous communities), we encourage researchers whose work contributes to the management and conservation of wildlife that is utilized or otherwise valued by those groups. The SoE is an interdisciplinary academic unit with faculty that specialize in Earth, environmental, and natural resource sciences. The successful candidate will be expected to: (i) develop an externally-funded and internationally recognized research program, (ii) publish research in high-impact, peer-reviewed outlets; (iii) teach undergraduate and graduate courses in topics related to wildlife ecology, management, and conservation, as well as specialty courses in their area of interest; (iv) recruit and effectively mentor diverse M.S. and Ph.D. students and undergraduate research assistants; (v) work collaboratively, respectfully, and productively with other faculty, staff, and students from a wide range of disciplines, cultures, and academic backgrounds; and (vi) serve university, professional, and/or public organizations from an ethical and evidence-based position. Screening of applications begins on November 15th. For questions about the position please contact: Dr. Daniel Thornton, Search Committee Chair, 509-335-3713, daniel.thornton@wsu.edu.
