TWO FACULTY POSITIONS: ONE IN OCEANOGRAPHY AND ONE IN AQUATIC AND FISHERY SCIENCES
The College of the Environment at the University of Washington (http://coenv.uw.edu) invites applications for two new tenure-track assistant professor positions, as part of its continuing commitment to research and education on Earth’s polar regions through the Future of Ice Initiative (http://ice.uw.edu). This campus-wide initiative focuses on developing partnerships with diverse stakeholders in the polar regions, where the triple challenges of climate change, new economic pressures, and rapid social and political disruption intersect. Descriptions of the new positions, one in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences and one in the School of Oceanography, are given below. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.
The successful candidates are expected to enhance the University of Washington’s multidisciplinary research in polar science, develop an externally funded research program, mentor the next generation of scientists, and contribute to rigorous edaucation serving an increasingly diverse student population at the graduate and undergraduate levels. The University of Washington promotes diversity and inclusivity among our students, faculty, staff, and public; for each of these faculty positions, we seek applicants who are committed to these principles.
