The School of Natural Resources and Environment (SNRE) at the University 
of Michigan has an opening for a tenure-track position for an Assistant 
Professor of Applied Aquatic Ecology.  This call is intentionally broad, 
as we are flexible with respect to areas of specialization and research 
skill-set, seeking applicants who are outstanding in terms of research

community, or ecosystem ecology and management. Candidates must have a 
Ph.D. in ecology or a closely related field, a strong record of

knowledge, policies, designs, and management strategies that “contribute 
to the protection of the Earth’s resources and achievement of a 
sustainable society.” The faculty of the School is diverse, with natural 
scientists, social scientists, engineers and landscape designers working 
together to develop solutions to the world’s most pressing environmental 
problems.  Candidates should show a history of, or keen interest in, 
collaborating across disciplinary boundaries, and clear evidence of 
research interests that link outstanding science to real-world 
management and problem solving.

The School offers a Ph.D. in Natural Resources and Environment and M.S. 
degrees in Natural Resources and Environment within six fields of study 
- conservation ecology; environmental informatics; sustainable systems; 
environmental policy and planning; behavior, education and

degree in Landscape Architecture.  SNRE also participates in multiple 
cross-campus degree programs, including an undergraduate Program in the
