Full Text of JOE Listing:

UW SEFS invites applications for three full-time tenure-track Assistant Professors working in the area of climate adaptation. We seek to form a diverse and inclusive faculty cohort that will advance and transform the research, teaching, and community engagement within SEFS and across the allied disciplines and scholars within the College of the Environment, the UW, and the multiple communities that we serve.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or foreign equivalent in a field related to climate change adaptation research not limited to: Chemical Engineering, Data Sciences, Ecology, Environmental Sciences, Forest Resources, Social Sciences, or other relevant fields. Applicants must demonstrate potential for an academic career at a national/international level with an active program of research and teaching, and a record of work related to issues of social justice and DEI.

In partnership with all SEFS faculty, staff and students, they will fully support and advance our commitments to equity, inclusion, and access work, including diversification of our curricula, faculty expertise, and School-wide programming, and perform research that incorporates transdisciplinary approaches, Indigenous perspectives, engagement with stakeholders and underrepresented communities, and social justice and equity implications. Scholars who do not see themselves historically represented in academia are especially encouraged to apply.
