Faculty Opening Jointly appointed between the Institute for a Sustainable Environment and the Department of Biology Clarkson University, Potsdam NY
The Clarkson University Institute for a Sustainable Environment (ISE) and
Department of Biology invite applicants for a joint Assistant or Associate
Professor, tenure-track faculty position to work in
a unique multidisciplinary environment. Research experience in
Environmental Health, Public Health, or Occupational
Health, especially in the area of epidemiology or environmental toxicology is
especially desirable. The Institute for a Sustainable Environment (ISE) is home
to interdisciplinary undergraduate degree programs in Environmental Health
Science and Environmental Science & Policy, along with established M.S. and Ph.D. graduate programs in Environmental Science and Engineering. The Department
of Biology has strengths in the areas of biomedicine, biotechnology and environmental biology, and a Ph.D. program in Interdisciplinary Bioscience &
Biotechnology. Clarkson also offers three health professional graduate degrees (PT, PA, OT) and an MBA in health care management. Through the ISE and other research centers on campus, faculty from
across campus engage in interdisciplinary efforts to reduce occupational and
public health threats from environmental contamination, and along with our
partners at the Trudeau Institute, to understand the etiology and reduce transmission of infectious disease. A competitive candidate for this position will be interested in developing cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations that enhance any of these activities.
The successful candidate will contribute to the ISE and Department of
Biology’s Bachelor, Masters and PhD programs through teaching,
student-mentoring and investigator-initiated, extramurally funded research.
Teaching responsibilities primarily in the areas of epidemiology, toxicology,
and environmental health are expected, with opportunity to develop undergraduate and graduate courses that support the public
or occupational health areas.
