The College of Arts & Sciences at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg invites applications for the position of an academic year (9 month), full-time, non-tenure-track Instructor of Environmental Science to begin in August, 2018.

The successful applicant must demonstrate a commitment to student success, be proficient and passionate about teaching, and be prepared to offer a 4/4 schedule of courses for the Environmental Science and Policy (ESP) Program and our highly anticipated interdisciplinary Sustainability Studies bachelors degree.  Among the courses expected in the portfolio include: Intro to Environmental Science, the senior capstone ESP Seminar, Environmental Field Methods, and one or more of the following: Wetland Environments, Climate Change, or The Fluid Earth/Hydrology. In addition, the successful applicant will supervise ESP interns and Intro to Environmental Science Lab teaching assistants. Teaching during the summer is a possibility.

The Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering and Technology at East Carolina University announce a major cross-college cluster hire in Water Resources. The initial senior hire, whose position will begin August 13, 2018, could be tenured in either the Department of Geography, Planning, and Environment, the Department of Geological Sciences, or the Department of Chemistry. The senior scholar will lead searches for additional faculty in the above named departments as well as the Department of Engineering in the College of Engineering and Technology.

In addition to developing and managing collaborative externally-funded research projects, the individual will teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the candidate’s area of expertise and provide service to ECU and the profession. The faculty member will also be expected to take a leadership role in the Water Resources Cluster and as such would have a reduced teaching role commensurate with a sustained successful research track-record and effective management of the cluster.

We seek individuals with an appreciation for the nature of the water resource management issues stemming from political, social, economic, and engineering factors that, on one hand, contribute to these problems, and on the other, hold the keys to their solutions. The cluster hires will quickly align themselves to collaborate with current researchers in various disciplines to build on existing research, but more importantly, to help it move in new directions and to explore new research opportunities.

This is advanced professional and supervisory work with technical and administrative responsibility in analyzing, understanding, planning, and preparing for the effects of sea level rise in the City of Miami.   An incumbent should possess strong research, organizational, leadership, interpersonal, problem-solving & communication skills, and be able to work effectively both independently and collaboratively. Reports to the Chief Resilience Officer (CRO), or designee, and will be the lead staff person within the Office of Resilience and Sustainability responsible for the coordination and implementation of the City's resilience strategy related to addressing increased flooding risks associated with sea level rise.

 

This is a 12-month tenure-accruing position that will be 60% teaching (College of Agricultural and Life Sciences) and 40% research (Florida Agricultural Experiment Station) available in the Agronomy Department, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, at the University of Florida.  This assignment may change in accordance with the needs of the unit. Tenure will accrue in the Department of Agronomy. This position will complement strong agroecology faculty programs addressing agronomic, economic, and ecological resilience in global agroecosystems to complement a comprehensive, preeminent agroecology program at UF. We are looking for candidates with experience working in transdisciplinary teams to investigate global change issues in agroecosystems using a variety of approaches that may include remote sensing and systems analysis at large-scales. The successful candidate will demonstrate expertise in the monitoring and analysis of complex and dynamic agroecosystems at the ecosystem, landscape, and global scales. Potential systems for the focus of investigation include pasture, rangelands, diversified agriculture, and integrated cropping systems. The faculty member will seek contract and grant funding actively to support his/her teaching and research programs.

The mission of the NRC Research Associateship Programs (RAP) is to promote excellence in scientific and technological research conducted by the U. S. government through the administration of programs offering graduate, postdoctoral, and senior level research opportunities at sponsoring federal laboratories and affiliated institutions.

In these programs, prospective applicants select a research project or projects from among the large group of opportunities listed on this website. Prior to completing an application, prospective applicants should contact the proposed Research Adviser to assure that funding will be available if their application is recommended by NRC panels. Once mutual interest is established between a prospective applicant and a Research Adviser, an application is submitted through the NRC WebRap system. Reviews are conducted four times each year and review results are available approximately 6-8 weeks following the application deadline.

Prospective applicants should read carefully the details of the program to which they are applying. In particular, note eligibility details. Some laboratories have citizenship restrictions (open only to U.S. citizens and permanent residents) and some laboratories have research opportunities that are not open to senior applicants (more than 5 years beyond the PhD). When searching for research opportunities you may limit your search to only those laboratories which match your eligibility criteria. In addition, note the application deadlines, as not all laboratories participate in all reviews.

There are four annual review cycles: 
  • Review Cycle: August; Opens June 1; Closes August 1
  • Review Cycle: November; Opens September 1; Closes November 1
  • Review Cycle: February; Opens December 1; Closes February 1
  • Review Cycle: May; Opens March 1; Closes May 1
