As one of the leading land-grant institutions in the nation, North Carolina
State University is proud to announce the second phase of hiring in the
Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, a cluster hire program spanning

strengths and the development of innovative curricula.  To date, 24 of 38
faculty positions have been filled in 12 clusters of scholars. [see]

As part of this university-wide program, the Department of Biological
Sciences, the Department of Applied Ecology, and the Department of Forestry
and Environmental Resources have formed a cluster in “Global Environmental
Change and Human Well-Being.”  We hired two senior faculty for this cluster
last year.  Building on this successful first round of hiring, we are
currently hiring one Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological
Sciences to complete this cluster of three faculty.  We seek leaders in any
area of evolutionary biology or ecology under this theme.  Although we are

Full Professor rank will be considered.  Successful applicants are expected
to have a strong vision for their vibrant research program, a commitment to
leadership in the area of Global Environmental Change, and commitment to
excellence and innovation in graduate and/or undergraduate education.

This cluster will strengthen and bridge a broad range of emerging
initiatives at NC State including: 1) the Southeast Climate Science Center;
2) the NC Museum of Natural Sciences; and 3) programs in Ecology and
Evolutionary Biology (for information on the Global Environmental Change
cluster and additional relevant cross-cutting programs see ).
