UW Freshwater Science Initiative Faculty Candidate Seminars

The Freshwater Sciences faculty search has been underway for the last several months. After reviewing over 350 applications, the committee has narrowed their selection to the top 10 candidates. Each candidate’s interview will take place over three days, with one day on the Tacoma campus and two in Seattle.
