Assistant Professors (4-position coordinated hire)

University of Idaho

Moscow, ID, United States 🇺🇸

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/,

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
