Assistant Professor in Ecosystem Science - Biogeochemistry

Department of Ecosystem Science and Sustainability

Colorado State University

Fort Collins, CO 80523

Description:      Tenure track, 9-month academic faculty position

The Department of Ecosystem Science and Sustainability at Colorado State University (Fort Collins, Colorado) is recruiting a new tenure-track faculty member at the rank of ASSISTANT PROFESSOR in ecosystem science with biogeochemistry and sustainability expertise. The position is expected to start at the beginning of fall 2019 Semester. We seek candidates with expertise related to (but not restricted to) land-use change and ecosystem services of global systems, human-modified and managed landscapes, or social-ecological systems. The research foci can encompass small-scale mechanism to larger, integrative global processes. Research approaches could include (but are not limited to) trace gas and/or biogeochemical processes, the use of stable isotopes, use of large data sets, molecular microbial tools, modeling, experiments, and inter- or trans-disciplinary studies. Applicants should be interested in working in a highly collaborative department and enthusiastic about teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, while contributing to the land grant mission of Colorado State University. Teaching responsibilities will include courses in ecosystem ecology and biogeochemistry. We envision an independent researcher who will develop a strong, extramurally-funded research program. The department of ESS has a commitment to actively contributing to developing a diverse and inclusive environment within the department, college, and university, and will expect the candidate to contribute to this vision.
