Full Text of JOE Listing:

The University of Central Florida has recently established six interdisciplinary clusters to strengthen its academic offerings and research mission. In support of this effort, we are searching for faculty in the broad interdisciplinary area of Sustainable Coastal Systems ( and plan to fill three positions of Assistant/Associate Professors and two positions of Associate/Full Professors to begin in Fall 2016. We will be hiring individuals who are active research leaders in the interdisciplinary fields of ecological modeling, ecosystem services, ecological engineering, coastal planning and emergency response, environmental/ecological economics, ecological policy, and coastal political geography.

Applicants for an Associate/Full Professor position in environmental/ecological economics must have a Ph.D. in Economics or related discipline from an accredited institution and publish in the fields of Environmental and Ecological Economics, Renewable Resources and Conservation, or Environmental Economics. We seek candidates with a strong record of interdisciplinary research in modeling and empirical analysis related to coastal systems and coupled human-natural systems such as estuaries, watersheds, and other near-shore marine habitats. Specific research interests could include renewable resource modeling for fisheries, social and economic resilience, water, or coastal habitats; ecosystem services valuation; environmental risk analysis; climate change; and environmental policy analysis.

The successful candidate will become a core faculty member in the Sustainable Coastal Systems Cluster. They must demonstrate a strong commitment to interdisciplinary research and publication; a commitment to interdisciplinary and collaborative research, have demonstrated an ability to perform high-impact and high-demand research, and develop a program that will lead to strong extramurally-funded research and national/international recognition. Faculty in these interdisciplinary positions will be expected to strengthen both their tenure home department as well as the Sustainable Coastal Systems cluster. Both individual and interdisciplinary infrastructure and startup are expected with these five new positions.
