Job Details

The Department of Natural Resources Science (NRS) in the College of the Environment and Life Sciences (CELS) at the University of Rhode Island (URI) invites applications for an academic year, tenure-track Assistant Professor specializing in applied quantitative ecology. Appointment is sought for the 2024 Spring or Fall semester. URI is the State of Rhode Island’s flagship land/sea grant research university located in Kingston, Rhode Island— a beautiful seaside community that is well connected by car and rail, lying 40 minutes from Providence, an hour from Boston and 3 hours from New York City. Southern Rhode Island is rural, with numerous wildlife refuges, state management areas and local land trusts where research can be conducted yet is reasonably close to possible urban sites.

NRS has 18 full-time faculty members, over 300 undergraduates majoring in either Wildlife and Conservation Biology or Environmental Science and Management, and numerous graduate students majoring in either M.E.S.M (a non-thesis professional M.S. program in environmental science and management), or thesis-based research in the Biological and Environmental Sciences for M.S. and Ph.D. students.

We invite individuals with a strong commitment to teaching, research, experiential learning, and mentorship at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidate will generate an internationally recognized program of research and scholarship investigating the applied quantitative ecology of terrestrial vertebrates. The candidate is expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching and experiential learning that incorporates contemporary statistical approaches and quantitative technological advances to investigate the applied ecology and conservation biology of terrestrial vertebrates. Priority will be given to candidates who show a commitment to broadening participation of members of underrepresented groups in science through research, pedagogical practices, and public engagement, and who would contribute to University of Rhode Island’s goals of increasing diversity, equity and inclusion.


Teach undergraduate and graduate courses, develop an externally funded research program, and support public engagement.

Please visit the URI jobs website at to apply for faculty job posting (F00382). 

The search will remain open until the position has been filled.  First consideration will be given to applications received by October 15, 2023. Applications received after October 15, 2023 may not be given full consideration.


The University of Rhode Island is an EEOD employer. 
Women, persons of color, protected veterans, individuals with disabilities, and members of other protected groups are encouraged to apply.
