Job Opportunities

Assistant Professor of Integrated Human and Ecological Systems

The Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society at Oregon State University invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor of Integrated Human and Ecological Systems. We seek an enthusiastic colleague to explore applied problems associated with the interactions of human and biophysical systems. The position will complement existing institutional strengths at OSU in conservation problem solving and applied natural resource analysis. As a department, we recognize that current and future environmental challenges will require novel perspectives, many of which are found in the variety of the world’s cultures. Therefore, we desire a colleague who can help us face our environmental challenges by respectfully drawing upon the lessons, experiences, and perspectives of a wide range of communities and cultures.

This is a 9-month, 1.0 FTE, tenure-track position with teaching, advising, research and outreach responsibilities. The appointee will be expected to teach classes in a new undergraduate natural resources curriculum, along with a graduate course. Courses may include those offered on campus, online, or in some combination. This faculty member will advise undergraduate and graduate students. Research should relate to the human dimensions associated with complex ecological and natural resource issues, but specific research focus is open. Interdisciplinary collaborations with faculty in the College of Forestry and other departments across campus are encouraged and expected, as is a demonstrable potential for nationally and internationally recognized scholarship.
