Role of the Position
The School of Life Sciences (SoLS) at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) seeks applicants for a tenure-track assistant professor position. Although related research areas may be considered, the ideal candidate will work in ecohydrology, will complement current interests in the School and have potential to collaborate with other UNLV institutes or colleges. Faculty members are expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and maintain a vigorous, externally-funded research program. The appointment will begin in August 2018.
SoLS (https://www.unlv.edu/lifesciences) is a highly active research environment and investigators work in ecology and evolutionary biology, integrative physiology, cellular and molecular biology, bioinformatics, microbiology, biomathematics, and biology education and assessment. We seek an individual who can work on water-ecosystem interactions at landscape and watershed levels, likely utilizing the resources of the nearby Colorado River and its reservoirs that supply most of the water to Las Vegas but also northern mountain valley systems that have been earmarked for possible basin water transport. Teaching loads are commensurate with research expectations. Established PhD and Master’s level graduate programs exist with excellent graduate student support.
This position requires a PhD degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline from a National/International accredited college or university. Postdoctoral experience is preferred.
