The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey is an innovative liberal arts and sciences college and is currently ranked among the top ten public Masters institutions in the northeast. The college is located in the Pinelands National Reserve in southern New Jersey on 1600 acres about one hour from Philadelphia, two hours from New York City, three hours from the Baltimore/Washington area, and 20 minutes from Atlantic City. The College has a diverse array of undergraduate programs and the School has several recently approved masters programs. Stockton provides vast opportunities for interdisciplinary academic, scholarly, and pedagogic development in the sciences and mathematics. We are seeking an outstanding broadly trained wildlife ecologist or wildlife management professional with a strong dedication to teaching and scholarship in a liberal arts environment to join us as of September 1, 2013. Academic experience with culturally diverse populations is desired.
Existing research facilities include hydrology, soils and environmental chemistry laboratories, a small greenhouse and insectary, an arboretum and collection room as well as GIS and HPC facilities. We are located in the relatively undeveloped Pine Barrens, a region that is undergoing pressures on natural resources that create opportunities for collaborative research with governmental agencies, non-profit organizations and private consultants. The successful candidate will be encouraged to develop a research program supported by external grants and fostering faculty-mentored student collaboration. The College provides several competitive internal grant programs to provide project initiation.
Please go to Stockton’s website at www.stockton.edu  for further information about the program and the College.
Ph.D. required and post-doctoral experience would be a plus. Demonstrated GIS and GPS applications and skills highly desirable. Teaching load is 12 credit hours/semester. Primary teaching responsibilities include lecture and laboratory sections of Ecological Principles (a core course for majors), undergraduate and graduate field oriented courses in biological resources management, to complement existing courses in dendrology, forestry, population biology and entomology, an upper level course on a taxon or other specialty, possibly Introduction to Environmental Studies course and General Studies (non-major) courses.
