Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture
Yale University
Tenure-Track Faculty Cluster Search

The Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture (YCNCC) invites applications for up to four tenure-track appointments, at any rank (assistant, associate, or full professor) in the natural sciences. The focus of the Center is to foster research on carbon capture and greenhouse gas reduction using ecological and geological approaches. Areas of interest include, but are not restricted to conservation, restoration, and management of forest and grassland ecosystems; blue carbon; agricultural practices; enhanced silicate weathering; and ocean alkalinity enhancement.

We encourage applicants from disciplines as diverse as ecology, plant physiology, soil science, geochemistry, petrology, sedimentology, earth and biogeochemical system modeling, and physical, chemical, and biological oceanography. The search is a partnership between the Center, the Yale School of the Environment, and the Faculty of Arts & Sciences, primarily the Departments of Earth & Planetary Sciences and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. The locus of appointments will be in a School or Department (based on a mutual fit between applicant experience and school/departmental interests), but new faculty will play a critical role in the development and success of the YCNCC.

We seek candidates with outstanding prospects for research, scholarly excellence, and teaching excellence who will complement the existing strengths of the Center and the participating university units. Applicants should have a doctoral degree in a relevant natural science or engineering field and will be expected to teach and mentor students at the graduate and undergraduate level, to develop an internationally-recognized and externally-funded research program, and to facilitate interdisciplinary research and contribute to building an inclusive academic environment.

Applicants should submit (1) a letter of application, (2) a curriculum vitae including a full list of publications, (3) a statement of teaching interests, and (4) a statement of research interests and plans, including how the applicant’s research program would contribute to scalable solutions for greenhouse gas reduction. Applicants should also provide the names and contact information of three professional references who can provide letters of recommendation upon request. Applications should be submitted online at For information regarding the YCNCC visit our website at Questions regarding the faculty search can be sent to Review of applications will begin January 7, 2022.

  • Moreover, as an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer, Yale University values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty and strongly welcomes applications from women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, LGBTQ community members, and persons from racial/ethnic groups historically underrepresented in earth and environmental sciences.
