Please full position announcement here
We seek an innovative scholar who will advance basic and applied research on the movement of organisms. Specific themes of interest include, but are not limited to: demographic and ecological consequences of movement, mechanisms underlying movement patterns, migration, trophic interactions, spatially explicit consumer-resource dynamics, coupling movement and environmental big data, using movement data to infer behavior, translating movement data into conservation and management outcomes. The appointed faculty member will be expected to develop an externally-funded research program that achieves an international reputation for research and graduate training in movement ecology.
Fundamental to this position is working within and across disciplinary and institutional boundaries and collaborating with state and federal agencies. The appointed faculty member will mentor and advise undergraduate and graduate students from diverse backgrounds, as well as teach courses to undergraduate and graduate students within the area of expertise as allocated by the Department Head.
An applicant's expertise should complement existing strengths in the Quinney College of Natural Resources and the Ecology Center. Through collaborations with faculty and extension personnel, the appointed faculty member will become a key player in the highly productive and collegial team of ecologists at Utah State University. We are interested in applicants who can prosper within a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment of physical, life, and social scientists.
