Assistant Professors, 4-position coordinated hire

University of Idaho

The Water Resources Graduate and Research program at the University of Idaho is excited to announce a coordinated faculty hire -- a collaboration among the Program and four academic departments in three Colleges. The University of Idaho is a comprehensive research institution situated in the beautiful Palouse landscape of the Inland Pacific Northwest and in the quality lifestyle of the city of Moscow. Information about the University, region, and community can be found at https://www.uidaho.edu/, https://www.ci.moscow.id.us/ and http://idahoptv.org/outdoors/shows/palouseparadise/palouse.cfm

The Program:

Water Resources crosses eight Colleges at the University of Idaho. It is centered on the theme of Reconciliation, focusing on the link between water and society with an emphasis on crossing boundaries to achieve sustainable economies and quality of life in a manner that facilitates adaptation and builds ecosystem function and resilience. The program is broadly-based, and fundamentally interdisciplinary, with strong research clusters in water-related food, biophysical, and human systems, and a developing strength in water technology innovation through collaboration with the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES) in Idaho Falls. This is an exciting time to join a community devoted to research, education, and outreach focused on the grand challenges facing water and society in the 21st century. The program is the home of an NSF IGERT focused on adaptation to change in water resources. The program is rapidly growing and these hires will join a vibrant research community. The program is working toward establishment a new Water Institute to facilitate and support interdisciplinary collaboration. For information on the program, please contact Professor Barbara Cosens, Associate Dean of the Law Faculty at bcosens@uidaho.edu
