Candidates are expected to hold a doctoral degree in sustainability science or closely related fields and conduct research and teaching in the same area. We particularly seek individuals conducting transformative, interdisciplinary, extramurally-funded, research at the interface of human and natural systems. The Department of Earth and Environment ( is composed of a diverse faculty with research interests in environmental, earth, atmospheric, and hydrologic sciences, as well as environmental resource economics, policy, management, and conservation. The Department is committed in our research and teaching to finding sustainable solutions to environmental problems. Environmental Sustainability is a complex field spanning the environmental, social, and economic systems. We seek scientists experienced at working across disciplines, with a strong background in any of the following areas: systems ecology, urban systems, water, sustainable food systems, bio-environmental systems, green technologies, resource economics and policy, and/or regional sustainability planning. The ability to evaluate “sustainability” scenarios and plans through quantitative methods and/or modeling is of interest to the Department. Principal responsibilities will include establishment of a strong externally funded research program, development of active collaborations with other faculty, research partners, and members of the community including policy makers and resource managers; and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, especially in our BA in Sustainability Program. Research at FIU is typically coordinated under one of several Institutes and Research Centers, many of which are preeminent programs, (, including the Institute of Water and Environment, the Southeast Environmental Research Center, the Sea Level Solutions Center, the Institute for Resilient and Sustainable Coastal Infrastructure, International Center for Tropical Biology, Extreme Events Institute, and Agroecology Program.
