Fowarded from CLIMLIST... Faculty Positions in Integrated Climate Response Modeling and Statistical Analysis POSITIONS: The Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University invites applications for two full-time, tenure-track/tenured faculty positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The positions are nine-month academic appointments available as of January 1, 2013. Research emphases for these positions includes integrated climate response modeling and statistical analysis. Candidates must demonstrate experience in modeling expected outcomes from either: stochastic systems modeling which integrates field data from ecologists, social scientists and geographers or related disciplines with climate information as outcome distributions; or, deterministic modeling which examines multi-parameterized data providing an overview of large scale changes on the scale of ecosystems or watersheds. These positions are critical components of an expanding initiative at Texas Tech University in the areas of climate science and climate response assessment.These appointments will contribute to the growth of this center and to TTU’s role in the recently established South Central Climate Science Center within the Department of Interior through their research and interactions with a diverse group of faculty at the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University and Louisiana State University. One position will be placed in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources and the other in the College of Arts and Sciences, in departments appropriate to the applicants’ academic background. .Detailed information on the two colleges can be found at <http://www.depts.ttu.edu/agriculturalsciences>and <http://www.depts.ttu.edu/artsandsciences/> THE UNIVERSITY: Texas Tech University is one of four major state-supported multidisciplinary universities in Texas. The University consists of 10 colleges, a School of Law, The Graduate School, and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. Currently, more than 32,000 students attend classes at the Lubbock campus. The City of Lubbock has about 230,000 residents, a moderate to low cost of living, and is situated on the Llano Estacado (Southern HighPlains).Texas Tech University, has been designated an emerging research university by the state of Texas, and is eligible for significant new state funding for research. Its 2010 strategic plan “Making it possible... 2010-2020 Strategic Plan” charts a course for Texas Tech to become a great public research university and to double the size of its research activity by 2020. Both the National Science Foundation and the Center for Measuring University Performance rank Texas Tech among the top 150 research universities in the country. QUALIFICATIONS: Successful applicants should have demonstrated ability to integrate climate data and projections via state-of-the-art analyses and impact models to generate information that can be used by natural resource and land managers, water managers, policy makers, conservation programs, ranchers, agricultural producers and other stakeholders for whom climate impact analyses are integral to future planning. Applicants for these positions should have proven leadership qualities and have demonstrated the potential to establish a high-quality, interdisciplinary research and teaching program, including effective collaborations with colleagues both within and outside their primary fields of research. Candidates must have Ph.D. by date of appointment. For consideration at the Associate level, the candidate must also demonstrate astrong record of external funding, collaborative research, and publication. A tenured appointment is possible for a candidate with the appropriate research, teaching, and service credentials, commensurate with the tenure guidelines of the university and home department. SALARY:Salary will be competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience. Start-Up:Generous start-up packages accompany these positions, designed to allow applicants to quickly build a research team through providing multi-year support for postdoctoral research fellows and graduate students.
