Job Description

Clemson University: College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences: Agricultural Sciences
Assistant Professor-Ecological Engineer

Location: BELLE W. BARUCH – BARONY LAB, Georgetown, SC


The Department of Agricultural Sciences located within Clemson University’s College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Sciences, seeks applications for a 12-month tenure-track position in Ecological Engineering at the Assistant Professor level (60% Research, 40% Extension) to work at Clemson’s Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science (BICEFS) in Georgetown, SC. Preferred candidates will be motivated to contribute to a collegial, interdisciplinary community with a strong tradition of fundamental and applied research and our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We seek an innovative scholar whose program focuses on the integration of hydrology, ecosystem processes, and human dimensions in dynamic, coastal areas. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in applied ecological engineering, ecosystem processes, hydrologic and hydrodynamic modeling, and/or computational hydrology who can effectively communicate their findings to a broader audience. Research may include but is not limited to impacts of climate and land use change on watershed, wetland, and coastal ecosystems; flooding and pollution mitigation (e.g., green stormwater infrastructure, treatment wetlands, and other nature-based solutions); and combining field, lab, and modeling investigations to address ecosystem issues across multiple scales.

The successful candidate will be expected to initiate, build, and sustain an externally funded, internationally recognized research and Extension program, publish in high-quality peer-reviewed journals, and complement existing faculty expertise in both the Department of Agricultural Sciences and BICEFS.

Skills & Requirements

Qualifications Required qualifications: A Ph.D. degree in Engineering (Agricultural, Biological, Biosystems, Civil, Ecological, Environmental, Natural Resource) or closely related field is expected at the time of employment. Substantial experience in ecological engineering design to address the needs of developing coastal communities is required. Excellent written and verbal communication is required. Preferred qualifications: Preference will be given to candidates with documented ability to secure external funding to support an active research program, a record of high-quality peer-reviewed journal publications, and demonstrated excellence (and/or dedicated interest) in applied research and dissemination to a broad audience. Ideal candidates will have experience or demonstrated interest in outreach/extension to integrate their research with community needs. Experience working as an active member in multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary research teams is also preferred.
