The University of California, Merced is creating a dynamic new university campus and campus community in Merced, California, which opened in September 2005 as the tenth campus of the University of California and the first American research university built in the 21st century. In keeping with the mission of the University to provide teaching, research and public service of the highest quality, UC Merced will be providing new educational opportunities at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels through three academic schools: Engineering, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences/Humanities/Arts.

UC Merced invites applications for a ladder-rank faculty position at the Associate or Full Professor level in Natural Resource Management of Public Lands and Protected Areas. We seek a distinguished scholar who will provide leadership in establishing a program of international stature within the interdisciplinary area of adaptive management of complex coupled human (legal, administrative, economic, cultural) and natural (ecological, climatic, geologic, hydrologic) systems to sustain native species, ecosystems, and landscapes, and to preserve cultural heritage.

The Sierra Nevada Research Institute and other campus units provide excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary research collaboration as well as established collaborations with external stakeholders. The campus’ proximity to Yosemite National Park and several National Forests, and existing relationships with these entities, provides an excellent opportunity to build partnerships for research and practice in natural resource management in nearby parks and protected areas.

The primary appointment may be in Natural Science, Social Sciences, or Engineering, or may be a joint appointment between schools. The successful candidate is expected to participate actively in the development of innovative, interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate programs in the future School of Management, and to contribute to the teaching and mentoring of a diverse student population.
