Brown University: Assistant Professor
Environmental Remote Sensing
Environmental Change Initiative

The Environmental Change Initiative (ECI) <http://www.eci.brown.edu/>,
Brown University, invites applications for a Brown University
tenure-track faculty position in Environmental Remote Sensing. We seek
a scholar who uses remotely sensed data to analyze the multiscalar and
complex relationships between human societies and the natural
environment. Requirements include a Ph.D. in an
environmentally-relevant social or natural science, a record of
achievement in the use of remotely sensed data in environmental
science-focused research demonstrated by peer reviewed publications
and/or externally funded research, and a commitment to excellence in
graduate and undergraduate teaching. We seek candidates whose research
interests and expertise complement and strengthen existing ECI
research foci in land change science, biogeochemical processes, and
conservation science. The successful candidate should integrate
research efforts with environmentally relevant natural and social
sciences spanning sociology, ecology, evolutionary biology and
geological and climate science and have experience working in an
interdisciplinary team. In addition to remotely sensed data, we are
interested in candidates who broadly incorporate geospatial
technologies in their research. S/he will maintain an active,
externally-funded research program and be involved in teaching at both
undergraduate and graduate levels. ECI fosters interdisciplinary
research and education in the environmental sciences at Brown. The
University is making investments in the ECI including new resources
for interdisciplinary research, post-doctoral research appointments,
graduate education and a cooperative graduate program with the Marine
Biological Laboratory (MBL) at Woods Hole. The candidate will be a
core faculty member of the ECI with an appointment in a
tenure-granting department such as Sociology, Geological Sciences, or
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Appointment is expected at the
Assistant Professor level, although exceptional circumstances would
warrant appointment at a higher level. The department appointment will
require that the candidate’s qualifications are commensurate with the
tenuring department’s standards for a tenured or tenure-track
appointment.

Requirements include a Ph.D. in an environmentally-related discipline,
a record of achievement in the use of remotely sensed data in
environmental science-focused research, and a commitment to graduate
and undergraduate teaching.

To apply, please submit a letter of interest addressed to Jack
Mustard, Search Committee Chair, Environmental Change Initiative,
along with a current CV, teaching and research statements, and 3
letters of reference for the Assistant Professor position.
Applications should be submitted through Interfolio at
<http://www.interfolio.com/apply/12528> and must be received by
September 6, 2012 in order to receive full consideration.

For administrative questions regarding this position please contact
Bonnie Horta at <Bernadette_Horta@brown.edu> or (401) 863-3032.

Brown University is an EEO/AA employer. Minorities and women are
encouraged to apply.
