Environmental Faculty Positions at the University of Delaware


One of the oldest institutions of higher education in this country, the
University of Delaware today combines tradition and innovation, offering
students a rich heritage along with the latest in instructional and research
technology. The University of Delaware is a Land-Grant, Sea-Grant, and
Space-Grant institution with its main campus in Newark, DE, located halfway
between Washington, DC and New York City. Please visit our website at
<http://www.udel.edu> www.udel.edu.


As part of its Path to Prominence Strategic Plan, the University of Delaware
has launched its Initiative for the Planet. The goals of this initiative are
to promote sustainable practices and to support multidisciplinary efforts in
research and education needed to develop solutions to significant,
time-critical issues in energy, the environment, and resource
sustainability. Our overarching objective is to make the University of
Delaware a national and international resource for environmental research,
technology, education, and policy - today and into the future.  To attain
this goal, we seek 6-8 outstanding faculty at all academic ranks in
environmental science, engineering, and policy. Faculty can have
appointments in multiple departments and colleges.


To complement these hires we are conducting a search for the Howard E.
Cosgrove Chair in Environment.  This internationally renowned scholar will
further enhance the prominence of the University's environmental
interdepartmental teaching and research programs, and assist in building the
Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) to a position of national and
international prominence.


The University of Delaware provides an outstanding environmental research
base through existing strengths in a number of areas including
biogeochemistry, soil and environmental chemistry, environmental
engineering, environmental microbiology, environmental genomics and
bioinformatics, geomicrobiology, land/coastal dynamics, land use, nutrient
management, environmental modeling, hydrology, environmental forecasting and
restoration, ecosystem health and sustainability, and environmental policy,
economics and education. These activities are carried out across the
University's seven colleges and in a number of well-regarded institutes and
research centers.  More details on our environmental programs can be found
at  <http://www.environmentalportal.udel.edu/>


The desire to better utilize the strengths in the colleges, institutes, and
centers, and to foster collaboration and enhance competitiveness in
attracting outstanding faculty and students, led to the creation of the
Delaware Environmental Institute in 2009. DENIN's goals are to initiate
interdisciplinary research projects, support interdisciplinary academic
programs, and forge partnerships among government agencies, nonprofits,
industry, policymakers, and the public to address environmental challenges
and coordinate and sponsor University-based interdisciplinary initiatives.
More details on DENIN can be found at  <http://www.udel.edu/denin>


Other recent actions which reflect the University's commitment to the
environment and sustainability include an aggressive Climate Action Plan and
the creation of new undergraduate majors in Environmental Studies and Energy
and Environmental Policy. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to
help shape and grow these new majors.


Candidates for the faculty positions are expected to hold a Ph.D. or
equivalent degree in their area of expertise and have a demonstrated record
of excellence in environmental scholarship commensurate with appointment to
a faculty position in one or more departments of the University. Nominations
and applications should be submitted electronically to Environmental Cluster
Search Committee Chair at  <mailto:environmental-hire at udel.edu>
environmental-hire at udel.edu.  Application materials should include a
statement of interest, curriculum vitae, description of research and
teaching interests and accomplishments, and the names and contact
information of at least four references. Review of applications will begin
on December 15, 2010 and will continue until the positions are filled.


The UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE is an Equal Opportunity Employer which encourages
applications from Minority Group Members and Women.
