DIRECTOR OF RENEW
Research and Education in eNergy, Environment and Water
The University at Buffalo (UB), The State University of New York, is seeking an outstanding researcher, scholar and vi-
sionary leader to serve as the Inaugural Director of the newly launched signature UB RENEW Institute, a comprehensive,
multidisciplinary organization dedicated to research and education on globally pressing problems in energy, environment,
and water. To lead the development of UB RENEW most effectively, the Director, in addition to having outstanding re-
search credentials in an appropriate area, will also have a successful track record of developing and leading interdis-
ciplinary teams. As well as expanding his/her own research program, the Director will lead the hiring of approximately
20 UB RENEW faculty and their integration with the existing 100 faculty, and programs and departments across the
Schools of Architecture and Planning, Engineering and Applied Sciences, Law, Management and Public Health and
Health Professions, and the College of Arts and Sciences.
UB RENEW is a central component of the Realizing UB 2020 Initiative, which is focused on building UB s reputation
as a leader in research, scholarship and innovation in the global community of scholars, and consequently it will be established with a significant university investment. UB RENEW will increase the visibility and stature of UB by integrating
its activities with those of community partners and parallel efforts across the 64-campus SUNY system, including participation in the SUN Y Network of Excellence in Energy, Environment, Economics, and Education.
The Director will serve as the executive officer responsible for the overall management of UB RENEW, and in this capacity
will report to the Vice President for Research and Economic Development. She/He will hold the highest level of academic
appointment, potentially in multiple departments or schools, and will work with faculty and university leadership to attract
additional external support from granting agencies, foundations, and private donors. Candidates should thus have a track
record of productive and well-funded basic and/or applied research and demonstrated ability in working collaboratively within
the academy, and also with state and local governments, not-for-profit organizations, and the business community.
