Assistant Professor of Soil Arthropod Ecology
The Department of Entomology invites applications for a tenure-track, academic year appointment as Assistant Professor of Soil Arthropod Ecology (60% research, 40% extension). The successful candidate will develop an innovative research program on the ecology and management of soil arthropods that will address both fundamental questions about soil arthropod ecology and strategies to mitigate pest problems of economic significance caused by soil arthropods in turfgrass and related industries in New York. The successful candidate also will develop and execute an innovative extension program focused primarily on the management of arthropod pests in turfgrass and contribute to Cornell's interdisciplinary turfgrass extension program.
The candidate must have a Ph.D. and demonstrate outstanding potential and a record of research achievement in soil arthropod ecology or a closely associated discipline. The candidate is expected to collaborate with related programs at Cornell University and contribute to our Land Grant Mission. The candidate is expected to mentor graduate students, publish research findings in peer-reviewed journals and secure strong and stable extramural funding from a wide array of sources including federal, state and industry groups.
