Terrestrial Ecosystem/Plant Ecologist
The Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology (EEMB) seeks an
ecologist for a tenure track position for research and teaching in
terrestrial ecosystem/plant ecology. We seek candidates whose research
is focussed on terrestrial ecosystems and plant community dynamics. We
are especially interested in applicants whose research is aimed at
understanding ecosystem processes, and who are solidly grounded in plant
ecology. The scale of research can vary from the plot to the landscape.
Examples of potentially relevant areas include, but are not limited to:
interactions between community composition/diversity and species
invasions with carbon & nutrient cycles, changing CO2/climate effects on
ecosystems, and landscape/soil controls on community dynamics.
Teaching responsibilities will include instruction in ecosystem and plant
ecology at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Applicants who have
completed at least one year of postdoctoral research will be preferred.
Submit curriculum vitae, selected reprints, a brief description of
previous and anticipated research, and arrange to have at least three
letters of reference sent to:
Ecosystem Ecology Search Committee
Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology
University of California
Santa Barbara, CA 93106
Review of applications will begin 15 November 2000, and will continue
until the position is filled.
