Cluster Hire in Coastal Water Security

Beginning in Fall 2018, an interdisciplinary team of faculty from five University of Delaware colleges will be conducting a Coastal Water Security cluster hire focused on water quality, toxicological assessment and restoration of contaminated environments, and impacts on human and ecosystem health arising from increased stressors in the coastal environment. The cluster will seek six faculty members: two in environmental remediation (one at the associate/full professor level and one at the assistant professor level); two in environmental toxicology/epidemiology (one at the associate/full professor level and one at the assistant professor level); and two in human and earth systems modeling (both at the assistant professor level). The cluster will establish critical new capabilities at UD in research and teaching, bridging environmental toxicology, contaminant remediation, and earth and human systems modeling. These efforts can have a multi-faceted impact by not only addressing some of Delaware’s most pressing environmental concerns of the present and future, but by helping to address existing social inequalities that determine disproportionate exposure to hazardous contaminants. The faculty search committee will be led by Donald Sparks (Delaware Environmental Institute/Plant and Soil Sciences), Holly Michael (Delaware Environmental Institute/Geological Sciences), Esther Biswas (Medical and Molecular Sciences), Julia Maresca (Civil & Environmental Engineering), Kent Messer (Applied Economics & Statistics), Jack Puleo (Civil & Environmental Engineering) and Neil Sturchio (Geological Sciences).
