ANNOUNCEMENT OF FACULTY VACANCY
27 November 2012
WILDLIFE HABITAT ECOLOGIST
The State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) in Syracuse invites applications for an academic-year, tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Wildlife Habitat Ecology. We seek a scientist focused on maintaining functional wildlife habitat both within the northeastern United States, where wildlife habitats are undergoing rapid change associated with land use, invasive species and climate, as well as elsewhere around the globe.
RESPONSIBILITIES: The successful candidate is expected to develop an extramurally funded and internationally recognized research program complemented by a teaching program that includes an introductory undergraduate course in Wildlife Ecology and Management and new undergraduate or graduate courses/seminars within their area of expertise such as habitat ecology, nutritional or foraging ecology, adaptive habitat management, or other habitat-related topic. Professional service to groups such as state and federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, professional societies and the public is also expected, as is significant interaction with colleagues and students in wildlife and other disciplines at the College and broader academic community.
QUALIFICATIONS: A Ph.D. in Wildlife Ecology or similar discipline is required, with a primary and demonstrated research interest in the ecology and management of wildlife habitat that includes game species. Demonstrated experience collaborating with state and federal agencies is also required. Knowledge of the nutritional and physiological needs of wildlife, quantitative skills in population and habitat analysis, strong field-oriented research and teaching experience, post-doctoral research experience, involvement with The Wildlife Society, and an ability and interest in mentoring graduate and undergraduate students in research are desired. Preference will be given to candidates having a record of excellence in research, teaching, and service commensurate with time since degree.
THE COLLEGE AND DEPARTMENT: The College of Environmental Science and Forestry, a specialized school within the SUNY system, is a Carnegie “Doctoral Research University Intensive” Institution. With a total enrollment of about 1,700 undergraduates and 600 graduate students, ESF provides an intimate small-college atmosphere while hosting one of the nation’s largest programs in wildlife, fisheries and conservation biology. The Wildlife Science undergraduate major and graduate concentration in Fish and Wildlife Biology and Management are housed within the Department of Environmental and Forest Biology (www.esf.edu/efb/), as is the historic Roosevelt Wild Life Station (www.rooseveltstation.org). The Department encourages integration of teaching and research, as well as field-intensive courses, and advanced undergraduates regularly work with graduate students and faculty on research.
With its many field stations, ESF ranks among the largest college campuses on earth. ESF’s forest properties close to Syracuse and within the Adirondack Park provide rich opportunities for teaching and research in wildlife habitat ecology. The main campus is also adjacent to Syracuse University and Upstate Medical University, giving students and faculty the added resources of large institutions of higher education including a wide array of courses, computer and library facilities, sports and health services, and cultural resources.
Applicants should submit the following materials in a single PDF on-line at http://www.esf.edu/hr/
Applications should include, in order: (1) a letter summarizing qualifications described in this announcement, (2) curriculum vitae, (3) a concise statement of research interests and experience, and (4) a concise statement of teaching philosophy and experience.
