The Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology invites applications for a tenure track, nine-month Assistant Professor Faculty position specializing in forest ecosystem ecology. The incumbent must have an interest in collaborating across disciplines, securing extramural funding, partnering with natural resource agencies, and achieving national and international research prominence.

The successful candidate should have a background in the field of forest ecosystem ecology, preferably with a focus on energy and material (e.g., water, carbon and nutrient) transformations and fluxes within and across biotic and abiotic ecosystem components. We are interested in hiring an individual that uses state-of-the-art, ecosystem-scale, in-situ measurement methodologies and modeling to address critical and timely issues such as forest ecosystem responses to the intertwined changes in climate and atmospheric chemistry. The focus of this position is on field-based measurements, but expertise in advanced quantitative methods or data-model linkages are encouraged.

We are seeking candidates trained in ecology and dedicated to applying their skills to make a difference for the environment and natural resources. They will create a vibrant research program, mentor undergraduates, graduate students and trainees, teach and make meaningful contributions to our department's teaching mission, and engage with natural resource decision-makers. The Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is internationally known for its research, teaching and outreach, and we are eager to welcome a new colleague to work and collaborate with us.

Applicants must hold a PhD in ecology, biology, environmental science or closely related field by the position start date. Specialization in the area of forest ecosystem ecology is preferred. Successful candidates will have a record of or demonstrate potential for:

i) Publications in peer reviewed journals

ii) Graduate student training/mentoring

iii) Teaching and curriculum development

iv) Writing extramural grants

v) Contribution to our outreach and service functions

vi) Promoting an inclusive and diverse climate within our campus and associated communities
