    The Department of Biology at the University of South Dakota is recruiting an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) in spatial modeling to begin August 2019. We seek candidates who develop spatially explicit models to examine impacts of land-use, vegetation dynamics, and/or climate change on populations, communities, or ecosystems at local, regional and global scales. The successful candidate's research will complement that of existing faculty, enabling collaboration and mentoring of graduate students. Opportunities for collaboration and research support include faculty with research interests in aquatic and terrestrial ecology, biodiversity, conservation and global change. Opportunities for collaboration also exist with faculty associated with a newly developed Ph.D. program in Sustainability and the Missouri River Institute (http://www.usd.edu/missouri-river-institute). Teaching may include spatial modeling, remote sensing, quantitative biology/statistics, general ecology, global change biology or other courses in the candidate's area of expertise.

    The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to establish a productive and extramurally funded research program and actively train M.S. and Ph.D. students. A Ph.D. is required and postdoctoral experience is preferred.

    Review of applications will begin September 7, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled. Applicants must apply online at https://yourfuture.sdbor.edu and must provide a cover letter that describes background with respect to the qualifications listed above, a CV, statements of research and teaching interests, and names and contact information for at least three professional references. Questions regarding the position may be directed to Dr. David Swanson, Search Committee Chair, Department of Biology (david.swanson@usd.edu<mailto:Helenurm@usd.edu>). The University of South Dakota is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
