Academic positions in environmental studies

Post by » Fri Nov 15, 2002 11:30 am

Two academic faculty positions are available in the Department of
Environmental Studies at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Both are
full-time, 9-month, tenure-track positions available Fall 2003. While they
are not explicitly system dynamics positions, people who take a systems
approach to environmental policy and/or resource management are strongly
encouraged to apply. Environmental Modeling using system dynamics is a
core course in our undergraduate curriculum. If you are interested, feel
free to contact me for further information.
