Employment of Global Environmental Science Professors at University of Arizona


We are currently recruiting four global environmental science professors, with expertise in one or more of the following fields of study: environmental microbiology, environmental chemistry and pollutant behavior, environmental physics, ecotoxicology, critical area science, environmental health and justice, environmental assessment of contaminated sites and reclamation of affected lands. All of these new recruits will be located in the Microcampus BS in Environmental Sciences program at Northwest Agriculture and Forestry University (NWAFU) in Yangling, China.

The University of Arizona (UA) world office and the Department of Environmental Sciences (ENVS) have entered into an agreement with the NWAFU to develop and deliver a microcampus environmental science bachelor’s degree program at the NWAFU which was launched in September 2020.

This UA Global microcampus program will be delivered by six UA professors “in the field” at NWAFU in Yangling. The program consists of 60 course units taught by the UA faculty (in English), providing the core curriculum of environmental science. The approx. 105 units (prerequisites, general education courses and electives) will be offered by the faculty of the NWAFU. The program will lead to a joint UA-NWAFU degree, including a BS in Environmental Sciences from the UA.

As one of the top universities in China, the NWAFU is well-equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms for teaching and research. It is located in Yangling, a beautiful city of 300,000 inhabitants, located 80 kilometers west of (and connected by high-speed train to) the provincial capital Xi’an, the oldest prefectural capital of China, and is home to 12 million people.
