Forwarded from CLIMLIST... The Joe D and Helen J Kington Professor in Environmental Change The University of Virginia's Department of Environmental Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences seeks an eminent scholar of international prominence whose research and teaching address the contemporary challenges of environmental change to apply for the Kington Chair in Environmental Change, an endowed professorship with tenure. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a relevant field of the environmental sciences and an outstanding record of scholarship and teaching consistent with an appointment as a Chaired Professor. The Kington Chair is at the center of a newly created university initiative in Resiliency in the Face of Environmental Change, as part of the University's Cornerstone strategic plan. This is a cross-school, cross-disciplinary effort focused on addressing environmental challenges. Developing ways to forestall and adapt to environmental change, and to cope with its many inter-connected consequences will require building strength across the disciplines whose research will contribute to the resiliency of our social, economic, and infrastructure systems. This university initiative will entail a cluster hire of at least five faculty within the College, the School of Engineering and the School of Architecture. The Kington Chair will provide intellectual leadership for this network of scholars who will study the science, politics, economics, culture, and ethics of environmental change. The ideal incumbent of the Kington Chair should be conversant not only in her or his own field, but knowledgeable about the trans-disciplinary aspects relevant to the challenge of environmental change. Possible areas of interest include (but are not limited to) natural and human drivers and effects of environmental changes on the biosphere, earth surface, hydrosphere, climate. To apply, submit a Candidate Profile through <Jobs@UVa> (<https://jobs.virginia.edu>), search on posting number 0617749 and electronically attach the following: CV, cover letter, and the names and contact information for three references. In the letter, please include examples of where you have provided intellectual leadership for a network of scholars who study multiple aspects of environmental change (e.g., science, politics, economics, culture, ethics). Additional materials will be requested of those candidates selected for interviews. The review of applications will begin on December 23, 2015. The appointment will begin at the start of the fall term in August 2016. Questions regarding the application process should be directed to: Rachel Short (<email@example.com>, +1-434-924-7763). Questions about the position itself should be directed to Jim Galloway, Search Committee Chair, at <firstname.lastname@example.org>. The University performs background checks on all new faculty hires prior to making a final offer of employment. The University of Virginia is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
