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.
