The successful candidate will contribute to programs of study in natural resource, environmental, and Earth sciences, by developing and teaching undergraduate and graduate courses involving plant ecology and related topics. In addition to classroom instruction, the successful candidate will mentor M.S. and Ph.D. students and contribute to the continued development of a Society of American Foresters-accredited program in forest ecology and management.
