    Deadline:  January 5, 2015

    The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources and the Environmental Program of the University of Vermont invite applications to fill three tenure-­‐track positions within a broad theme of sustainability studies and global environmental equity.  The positions are expected to complement existing faculty strengths in three areas of expertise:

    1)    sustainability policy and/or behavior with a focus on energy, climate, transportation, food or interrelated arenas

    2)    sustainability values, community/social aspects of resilience, health, and well-­‐being

    3)    sustainability education and communication

    We especially seek candidates who think across disciplinary boundaries, using theoretical, applied, and/or community-­‐based approaches to address environmental challenges where sustainability is the goal.  A high priority is scholarly work with commitment to social and environmental justice and their relation to equity, power, and privilege.   Successful candidates will demonstrate interdisciplinary research of the highest quality and the capacity to seek extramural funds to support their scholarship. We seek colleagues with innovative teaching methods that promote engaged learning in the 21st century and a commitment to teaching in the interdisciplinary undergraduate Environmental Studies program as well as the RSENR graduate program.  Candidates will demonstrate the capacity to develop a highly productive graduate research program for both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Natural Resources.

    As part of this cluster hire, we are also seeking applications from senior scholar-­‐teachers with   administrative experience and commitment to interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship for the position of Environmental Program Director, to be hired at the associate or full professor rank.  The Director provides internal program leadership as well as external leadership in relation to campus-­‐wide undergraduate environmental education, with oversight for program staff, curriculum initiatives, cross-­‐campus coordination, and the UVM Natural Areas.  Environmental Studies, a campus-­‐wide major shared by two colleges in addition to the Rubenstein School, is the second largest major at UVM, with over 500 majors and minors pursuing a wide range of interests.  The faculty includes eight tenure-­‐track members with appointments of 25-­‐100% teaching in the Program and three full-­‐time lecturers.  In this period of continued growth for our nationally acclaimed program, we seek a Director who can provide inspired vision and collaborative leadership to support high quality learning opportunities and student engagement.  The Director reports to the Dean of the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources (RSENR).

    The University of Vermont is located in Burlington, the largest city in Vermont, with an increasingly ethnically and culturally diverse population. The mission of RSENR is to understand, nurture, and enrich the interdependence of people and healthy ecological systems. RSENR has 45 tenure-­‐track, research, and teaching faculty, 35 staff, 600 undergraduates, and 100 graduate students in both Master’s and Ph.D. programs. RSENR is based in the LEED Platinum certified Aiken Center and also includes the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics, Aiken Forestry Sciences Laboratory, and Rubenstein Ecosystem Science  Laboratory on Lake Champlain.

    Candidates must have earned a doctorate by the time of appointment, and teaching experience is preferred. Of these positions, one will be hired at the assistant professor level, one at the assistant or associate professor level, and one at the associate or full professor level to serve as Director of the Environmental Program.  Preference will be given to candidates with: 1) a strong record of scholarly achievement, external funding, and publications; 2) experience with university-­‐level teaching, high impact


    experiential learning pedagogies, academic advising, research and internship mentoring, and curriculum innovation; 3) experience working across disciplines and diverse perspectives; and 4) strong communication and collaboration skills.

    Title:  Post-doc position in environmental evaluation of insects' biorefiinery systems fro trout and poultry feeds production

    Institution: French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA), http://www6.rennes.inra.fr/umrsas/

    Location:  Rennes, France

     The French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA), is devoted to producing knowledge and innovation in the fields of food, environment, regional development and sustainable agriculture.

    We propose a post doc position based at the research unit “Sol Agro et hydrosystème Spatialisation” (UMR SAS) at Rennes, Brittany, France (http://www6.rennes.inra.fr/umrsas/).

    Our group is dedicated to the evaluation of the environmental impacts of agricultural production systems. Our studies follow two main objectives:

    • The development of methods for the environmental evaluation of farming systems. Life Cycle Analysis is at the basis of our methodological work
    • The evaluation of existing and new production systems. Work on pig production, fish production systems, dairy systems and on the evaluation of environmental impacts and ecological sustainability at the level of a farming region is ongoing.

     Research project:

    The present position called “environmental evaluation of insects biorefinery systems for trout and poultry feeds production  using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)”, is included in a large research project:  ANR DESIRABLE (http://www.agence-nationale-recherche.fr/suivi-bilan/environnement-et-ressources-biologiques/systemes-alimentaires-durables/fiche-projet-alid) involving teams of several different private companies and French research institutes (Ynsect, IPV Food, INRA, IRSTEA, Agroparistech…). This project is focused on the sustainability assessment of the ingredients coming from an insect biorefinery, to be a sustainable alternative to fish and soybean meal in fishes & poultry diets.

    The project aims to produce environmental impact indicators applied to different technical and geographic contexts of insect’s production and processing, feed production, and finally poultry and trout productions, using the LCA methodology. The method will be adapted according to the production systems and the regional backgrounds.

    This postdoc project focuses on 3 points questions:

    1. the adaptation of the approach based on attributional LCA developed by our research unit, to insects production, processing and use as ingredient in animal feed (trout and poultry) 
    2. the development of a consequential LCA taking into account the economic market changes in feed production sector (Coll. Catherine Macombe, IRSTEA)
    3. The inclusion of uncertainty analysis in both attributional and consequential LCA. 

    Applicant profile:

    Applicants should have a PhD in environmental science, natural resources management, animal production, farming systems research, agronomy or a closely related field. Experience with environmental assessment approaches is desirable, especially on Life Cycle Assessment. Ability to work in a team and verbal and written communication skills are required. Basic knowledge of the French language is appreciated, but not necessary.

    The positions are open to both French and non-French candidates.

    Operating conditions:

    The position is based at UMR SAS, INRA, Rennes Centre, France.

    Duration is 24 months;

    Gross remuneration according to national public sector : 2310,52 € / month
