Job Details

The Department of Natural Resources Science (NRS) in the College of the Environment and Life Sciences (CELS) at the University of Rhode Island (URI) invites applications for an academic year, tenure-track Assistant Professor specializing in wildlife population ecology. Appointment Spring/Fall 2024. URI is the State’s flagship land/sea/space grant research university located in Kingston, Rhode Island— a beautiful seaside community that is well connected by car and rail about 40 min from Providence, an hour from Boston and 3 hours from New York City. Southern Rhode Island is rural, with numerous wildlife refuges, state management areas and local land trusts where research can be conducted.

The Department of Natural Resource Science, College of the Environment and Life Sciences, and URI are committed to building and supporting a diverse, inclusive, and equitable community of students and scholars.

NRS has 18 full-time faculty members, over 300 undergraduates majoring in either Wildlife and Conservation Biology or Environmental Science and Management, and numerous graduate students majoring in either M.E.S.M (a non-thesis professional M.S. program), or thesis-based research in the Biological and Environmental Sciences for M.S. and Ph.D. students.

We invite individuals with a strong commitment to teaching, research, experiential learning and mentorship at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidate will generate an internationally recognized program of research and scholarship investigating the population ecology of terrestrial vertebrates. The candidate is expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching and experiential learning in the latest statistical approaches and technological advances to investigate the population dynamics of vertebrate populations.


Teach undergraduate and graduate courses, develop an externally funded research program, and support public engagement.

Please visit the URI jobs website at to apply for faculty job posting (F00380).   

The search will remain open until the position has been filled.  First consideration will be given to applications received by November 10, 2023. Applications received after (this date) November 10, 2023 may not be given full consideration.
