Assistant Professor, Forages & Bioenergy:
Work independently as a member of interdisciplinary teams to develop a nationally-recognized teaching and research program in forages, including forage management and utilization relating to livestock production systems and use of forages as feedstocks for bioenergy production. Teaching duties could include existing undergraduate courses in Forage Management and Utilization (3 credits), plus development of an undergraduate/graduate level course in crop physiology and a graduate level course based on the successful candidate's interests. Research may include improvement of forage production and quality, techniques for improving grazing and forage management efficiency, testing of new and alternative forages, integration of forage species into a total forage program for livestock, developing forage management systems, and the selection and improvement of forages and optimization of forage management for production of bioenergy feedstocks. Undergraduate advising will be an important component of the teaching duties. Development of a strong research program including the training of graduate students, publication of research results in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and securing extramural funding is expected. The candidate must be able to work in a multi-cultural setting and create an environment that fosters collegiality, diversity and teamwork.
