Faculty Positions in Integrated Climate Response Modeling and
Statistical Analysis


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

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.

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.


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
