Assistant Professor (tenure-track) Positions in Water. University of
North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

The Department of Geography and the Department of Geological Sciences at
the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill invite applications from
outstanding scholars for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions
in the general area of water.

The Department of Geography invites applications for a position focused
on the Biophysical Dimensions of Water. We seek an energetic scholar who
can provide leadership in one or more areas related to the
climatological, hydrological, ecological, geomorphological, or health
aspects of water. We are particularly interested in candidates who
engage human-environment interactions from a physical science perspective.

The Department of Geological Sciences invites applications for a
position with a focus on Surface Water/Groundwater Interactions. The
candidate’s research focus may include the physics and/or chemistry of
interactions among groundwater, hydrothermal reservoirs, soil water,
permafrost, rivers, lakes, and other active reservoirs of liquid water
at or near the surface of the Earth. The strongest candidates will
conduct research relevant to water as a resource in sustaining natural
ecosystems and human societies and as a key component of Earth’s
critical zone. The successful candidate will also have teaching and
service responsibilities in the interdisciplinary Curriculum for the
Environment and Ecology. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. at the time of
appointment, and postdoctoral and teaching experience is highly desirable.

The successful candidates will be expected to establish dynamic,
externally funded research programs and demonstrate excellence in
teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. They may also wish to
take advantage of existing relationships with other departments and
research centers including the Institute for the Environment, the Water
Institute, the Department of Marine Sciences, the Curriculum for Ecology
and Environment, and centers and programs at nearby Duke University and
North Carolina State University. Both departments have strong
commitments to interdisciplinary and international research and teaching.

Applicants for each position must submit a letter of application,
statements of research and teaching interests, vita, and contact
information (names, addresses, email, and phone numbers) of four
references on-line at <https://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/search>.
Review of applications will begin on December 20, 2012 and will continue
until the positions are filled. For more information on the Departments
and the University please visit our web pages at geography.unc.edu
<http://geography.unc.edu> and www.geosci.unc.edu
<http://www.geosci.unc.edu>. If you have questions about the positions,
please contact Dr. Chip Konrad, konrad@unc.edu <mailto:konrad@unc.edu>
(Tel: 919-962-3873) in Geography or Dr. Tamlin Pavelsky,
pavelsky@unc.edu <mailto:pavelsky@unc.edu> (Tel: 919-962- 4239) in
Geological Sciences.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal
opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women and minorities are
encouraged to apply.
