The University of Kansas (KU) Program in Environmental Studies (EVRN), the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) and the Kansas Biological Survey (KBS) invite applications for an Aquatic Ecologist to be hired at the Assistant Professor/Assistant Scientist or Associate Professor/Associate Scientist level.  The position is part of a KU Water Cluster Hiring initiative.  We seek an outstanding scientist who explores fundamental ecological questions from within any area of aquatic ecology. Research relevant to issues of growing environmental concern, such as effects of biodiversity loss on ecosystem function, invasive species, climate change, altered sedimentation dynamics or effects of altered land-use on ecological patterns and processes in aquatic systems, are especially attractive.  Similar to multiple interdisciplinary and cross-appointed faculty members across KU's campus, the successful candidate will share a joint faculty appointment in KU's EVRN Program (.40), the Department of EEB (.10), and the KBS (.50).  The successful candidate will be expected to: 1) maintain an extramurally funded research program and mentor undergraduate and graduate students; 2) teach courses in the ecological sciences, including general and specialized courses in the candidate's research area that contribute to the interdisciplinary goals of the Environmental Studies curriculum; and 3) have a commitment to service within EVRN, KBS, the College of liberal Arts and Sciences, the University and the scientific discipline of aquatic ecology.  The University of Kansas is especially interested in hiring faculty members who can contribute to one or more of the four key campus-wide strategic initiatives: 1) Sustaining the Planet, Powering the World; 2) Promoting Well-Being, Finding Cures; 3) Building Communities, Expanding Opportunities; and 4) Harnessing Information, Multiplying Knowledge.
