The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources (RSENR) at the University of Vermont (UVM) invites applicants for a full-time, 9-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor in Fisheries Biology. Qualified candidates should have a strong foundation in fisheries biology and a research focus that addresses questions of ecological and management importance and supports basic and applied questions related to fisheries. We seek candidates who apply creative and innovative approaches to research and teaching, possess strong leadership potential and communication skills, facilitate and promote inclusive research and teaching environments, and want to collaborate with scientists, managers, policymakers, nongovernmental organizations, and diverse communities and stakeholders at local to international levels.
The workload is 40% research, 40% teaching, and 20% service. The successful candidate is expected to build a vibrant research program that addresses issues related to the conservation, management, and/or ecology of fish populations and communities, and includes a Lake Champlain-focused research program that leverages our new hybrid research vessel Marcelle Melosira.
