The Nicholas School of the Environment invites applications for two tenure-track positions in Terrestrial Ecology, one at the Assistant Professor level and one at either the Assistant or Associate Professor levels. The successful candidates will contribute to an expanding focus on global environmental change as part of the Duke Climate Commitment and participate in the University Program in Ecology. We seek applicants who will establish widely recognized, externally funded research programs. Both positions are encouraged to capitalize on Duke’s traditional strengths in areas such as biodiversity, biogeochemistry, ecophysiology, forest ecology, tropical ecology, species interactions, watersheds, statistical science, and/or theory.  Research on both plants and animals is encouraged as are technical frontiers in modeling, geo-spatial methods, experimental networks and/or remote sensing. Combinations of broad-scale studies and site-based research that could use the Duke Forest and Marine Lab are welcome. The position will be based on Duke University’s main campus in Durham, North Carolina.

 

The successful applicant will contribute to teaching, advising and service activities in the University and the applicant’s professional field. Teaching will consist of 2.5 courses per year, in the applicant’s area of expertise and in coordination with the Division chair. Course offerings will be part of the Environment PhD, the professional Master of Environmental Management (MEM) and Master of Forestry (MF) , and undergraduate programs. 

 

Duke University and The Nicholas School of the Environment are strongly committed to advancing inclusive excellence throughout our research, teaching, and service activities. A diverse faculty – defined broadly as representing a wide range of identities, lived experiences, and perspectives – is a prerequisite for excellence and is essential to driving innovation within our scholarly community. To achieve these goals, it is essential that all members of the community feel valued and welcome, that the contributions of all individuals are respected, and that all voices are heard. All members of our community are expected to uphold these values, and we seek to hire faculty who are passionate about increasing the participation and success of individuals from all different backgrounds and communities.  

 

Interested candidates should submit the following by 20 October 2023: a cover letter (with contact information); a curriculum vitae; a three-page research statement that includes a description of past research accomplishments, plans for future research, and their experience and approach to mentoring and supporting  a diverse and inclusive research environment; a one to two-page statement describing their teaching philosophy, previous experiences, future plans for teaching, and experience and approach to fostering an inclusive learning and mentoring environment for their students; up to three representative publications; and three reference letters.
