School of Engineering – Engineering
Open Mar 9, 2015 through Jun 30, 2015
The University of California, Merced is creating a dynamic new
university campus and campus community in Merced, California, which
opened in September 2005 as the tenth campus of the University of
California and the first American research university built in the 21st
century. In keeping with the mission of the University to provide
teaching, research and public service of the highest quality, UC Merced
will be providing new educational opportunities at the undergraduate,
master’s and doctoral levels through three academic schools:
Engineering, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences/Humanities/Arts.
UC Merced invites applications for a ladder-rank faculty position at the
Associate or Full Professor level in Natural Resource Management of
Public Lands and Protected Areas. We seek a distinguished scholar who
will provide leadership in establishing a program of international
stature within the interdisciplinary area of adaptive management of
complex coupled human (legal, administrative, economic, cultural) and
natural (ecological, climatic, geologic, hydrologic) systems to sustain
native species, ecosystems, and landscapes, and to preserve cultural
heritage. We seek a leader in scholarship and practice that addresses
lands and resource management broadly in the context of changing global
earth systems and governance, including conservation, ecosystem services
and climate adaptation.
Appropriate candidates will have distinguished research, educational,
and leadership experience that emphasizes science, conservation, social
science, and/or management. The ideal candidate will bridge science and
management, and will lead efforts to develop interdisciplinary research
and education programs at UC Merced associated with science, management,
and sustainability of public lands and protected areas, such as national
parks. The Sierra Nevada Research Institute and other campus units
provide excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary research
collaboration as well as established collaborations with external
stakeholders. The campus’ proximity to Yosemite National Park and
several National Forests, and existing relationships with these
entities, provides an excellent opportunity to build partnerships for
research and practice in natural resource management in nearby parks and
The primary appointment may be in Natural Science, Social Sciences, or
Engineering, or may be a joint appointment between schools. The
successful candidate is expected to participate actively in the
development of innovative, interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate
programs in the future School of Management, and to contribute to the
teaching and mentoring of a diverse student population.
