Forwarded from CLIMLIST... SOUTH CAROLINA, COLUMBIA. The Department of Geography at the University of South Carolina invites applications by Senior Scholars in Remote Sensing for appointment at the level of tenured full professor to begin August 16, 2012. Minimum qualifications are demonstrated excellence in research and teaching in theoretical/conceptual issues in remote sensing, including photogrammetric, multi- and hyperspectral, thermal infrared, or active microwave (RADAR) sensors. The applicant (with a PhD in Geography or a closely related field) must demonstrate a strong record of: 1) publishing in top remote sensing and GIScience journals and grantsmanship, 2) activity and leadership in national/international remote sensing (e.g., ASPRS, ISPRS) and GIScience organizations, and 3) mentoring and placing graduate students. We are especially interested in candidates who have the ability to work with interdisciplinary groups on and off campus. Preferred characteristics of the senior hire include research interests that complement and expand our existing strengths in the theoretical foundations and application of remote sensing. Successful candidates will join a vibrant, high-ranking department that offers bachelors, masters, and PhD programs in geography with a strong tradition in GISciences. More than half of the geography PhDs graduated from USC have specialized in GISciences; a third specifically in remote sensing. The department has excellent, recently renovated facilities that house several specialized activities, including the GISciences Research Laboratory, Climate Research Laboratory, Earth Surface Pattern and Process Laboratory Complex, Center for Excellence in Geographic Education, and the Hazards and Vulnerability Research Institute. The University of South Carolina has been designated as one of only 62 public and 32 private academic institutions with “very high research activity” by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The Carnegie Foundation also identifies USC as having strong community engagement. The University has over 30,000 students on the main campus (and over 43,000 students system-wide), 350 degree programs, and a nationally ranked library system. Columbia, the capital of South Carolina, has a population of over 650,000 in the greater metropolitan area. To apply, send letter of application, curriculum vitae, and the names and addresses (including e-mail addresses) of four referees to the address below. We prefer e-mail submission of applications. The department will begin initial screening processes for this position on October 20, 2011. To guarantee full consideration, all materials must be received by November 1, 2011. Apply to Professor Michael E. Hodgson, Chair of Senior Remote Sensing Search Committee, Department of Geography, University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC 29208; e-mail <email@example.com>.
