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 position specializing in Watershed Ecology. Anticipated appointment January 2025.

URI is the State's flagship land and sea grant research university located in Kingston, Rhode Island— a beautiful seaside community that is well connected by car, bus, and rail about 40 min from Providence, an hour from Boston and 3 hours from New York City.

The Natural Resources Science department has 18 full-time faculty members conducting active research programs and numerous staff working in Cooperative Extension. Our department has over 300 undergraduates majoring in either Environmental Science and Management or Wildlife and Conservation Biology with several undergraduate minor degrees including Restoration Science and Management and Global Water Resources. Our faculty mentor numerous graduate students enrolled in either M.E.S.M (a non-thesis professional M.S. program) or thesis-based research at both the M.S. and Ph.D. levels in the interdisciplinary Biological and Environmental Sciences graduate program.

We invite individuals with a record of successful research, as well as a demonstrated commitment to inclusive teaching, experiential learning, and mentorship at the undergraduate and graduate levels to apply. The successful candidate will generate an internationally recognized program of research and scholarship investigating current environmental issues in Watershed Ecology and problems such as climate change, pollution remediation, flood risk, restoration and protection of aquatic systems, and sustainability. The candidate is expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching and experiential learning in the field of watershed ecology and similar topics relevant to our students' degree requirements. 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.
