In the forty years since the Kemeny administration’s reinvigoration of the College’s founding ideals, Dartmouth has established its preeminence among peer institutions in the recruitment, retention, breadth, and achievements of the American Indian student population. Dartmouth’s Native American Program (NAP) is an exemplary model, and, it is grounded in the following core commitments which the Director proactively upholds: support for Native American education; facilitation of the holistic development of Native students; reflection of the value that self-determination has in the lives of Native students; maintenance and expression of Native American cultural identity; and, cultivation of a strong ethic of community engagement within the College community, its Native communities and its external relationships.
Position Purpose

The Director of the Native American Program (NAP) will be to guide the vision, development and implementation of a dynamic program; and, to provide direction, leadership, and consultation in the educational, social, cultural, and personal development of Native American students at Dartmouth College. These priorities are accomplished through: 1) Program Vision, Development, Implementation and Evaluation 2) Student Advising and Mentoring 3) Community Advocacy 4) Budget and Personnel Administration, and 5) Community Engagement and Collaboration. We seek a student-centered colleague with a deep commitment to the wellness and academic achievement of Native students, a passion for collaboration and respect for diverse points of view, and a strong desire to work as part of a community.

We’re recruiting a new Assistant Professor (i.e. lecturer) in Tropical
Sciences at the University of Nottingham. This is a permanent position.
We’re especially keen to bring in someone working in ecology and
conservation, though would be open to applicants in behaviour or physiology
as well. Essentially we want someone with whole-organism interests in the
tropics. For the full advertisement see:

The position is being created because we need someone to run our new
Tropical Sciences degree and contribute to teaching on it. This will
commence in 2016, and any new appointment can expect to be protected for the
first couple of years to allow them to develop their research. The new
degree will be a split-site undergraduate program with two years in the UK
and one year on our campus in Malaysia, just outside KL. Candidates with
experience of working in Malaysia will therefore be particularly welcome.

We have a very friendly and collaborative group here, which has been growing
steadily over the last few years. People at Nottingham with major research
interests in the tropics include Adam Algar, Richard Field, Ahimsa Campos-
Arceiz, Sofie Sjogersten, and myself. This is only a small part of a much
larger ecology and evolution section though. Our website hasn’t been updated
for a few years but see for some idea of
what goes on here and by all means ask if you’d like to know more.

Please share this advertisement widely with anyone you know who might be
interested. This is a genuinely open call and we’re excited about bringing
in another colleague who will expand our current interests. I’m happy to
answer any general enquiries though specific questions about the position
should go through Prof. Jan Bradley who is the academic lead.

All the best,

Funding Agency: Environmental Protection Agency

Project Title: Scope, fate, risks and impacts of micro-plastic pollution in Irish freshwater systems.


This one year study will inform the development and implementation of policy through improved understanding of the environmental fate and risk posed by micro-plastics in Irish freshwater systems. Identification of potential sources and characteristics of micro-plastics in freshwater systems; together with an assessment of exposure, evaluation of biological effects and interactions with pollutants is needed to inform societal, regulatory and political discussions at national and European levels. Through characterisation of the scope, fate, and impact of micro-plastics in Irish lakes and rivers this project will facilitate development of policies and strategies that address risks posed by this emerging pollutant.

The candidate will join a dynamic research team at GMIT’s Marine and Freshwater Research Centre (MFRC). The MFRC works to achieve two over-arching and complementary outcomes:

1. Contribution to marine and freshwater conservation, management and advisory processes through analytical products, applications and reports; and,

2. Publication in the primary literature to ensure state of the art standards.

This dual approach ensures the quality of the deliverables and highlights the excellent work conducted in Ireland to an international audience, whilst also serving national needs. As a specialised research centre the MFRC places particular emphasis on its key research areas through informing policy, industry engagement and academic output with more than 190 international peer reviewed publications in the last 5 years.


A PhD in one or more of the following: freshwater pollution, micro-plastics, research to inform relevant policy; with specific experience in hydrology. The successful candidate will also have demonstrated proficiency in stakeholder engagement and communication; project conceptualisation, implementation and reporting; and demonstrated ability to work as part of a dynamic team.

Project Start-Date: 16th February 2015

Project Duration: 1 year
