Assistant Professor, Forest Ecophysiology – Washington State University

The School of the Environment (SoE) at Washington State University invites applications for an Assistant Professor in Forest Ecophysiology, to begin August 2020. We are particularly interested in candidates who work at sub-stand, stand, forest, and/or landscape levels, and who can contribute to SoE’s interdisciplinary efforts and the continued development of our forest ecology and management program. Specific research areas could involve biotic (e.g., phenologic, symbiotic, evolutionary), hydrologic or hydraulic, and/or biogeochemical responses and feedbacks of forests to climate change, disease and other biotic or abiotic damage agents; and Earth system interactions, e.g., via carbon, nutrient, or geochemical cycles.  Other novel research programs of forest-environment interactions will also be considered.  The successful candidate will: (i) develop an externally funded research program; (ii) publish research in high-impact journals; (iii) teach undergraduate and graduate courses; (iv) mentor graduate students; (v) work with faculty and mentor students from a wide range of backgrounds; and (vi) contribute to the continued development of a Society of American Foresters-accredited program in forestry.
