The successful candidate will be expected to develop a robust research and teaching program and to be involved in service and outreach activities related to the areas of expertise. In addition to securing extramural funding, the successful candidate will be expected to publish in the peer-refereed literature, advise undergraduate students, direct graduate students in research, serve on departmental committees, participate in professional societies and interact with the broader public. The successful candidate will be expected to work collaboratively with state, tribal, and federal agencies across New Mexico and the country, and to build strong collaborative relationships across the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES; https://aces.nmsu.edu/).
