FACULTY POSITION IN Climate Change and Sustainability

University of California, Riverside

The Department of Earth Sciences at UCR is recruiting a faculty member
in the broadly defined area of Climate Change and Sustainability. This
is an academic year tenure track position at the Assistant Professor
level and will be available July 1, 2017.

We seek to hire a faculty member in Climate Change and Sustainability,
working at broad spatial scales over human-relevant time scales, and
with expertise in one or more of the following fields: climate dynamics,
land and ocean surface processes, and ocean/atmosphere interactions. The
candidate is expected to use state-of-the-art models and observations as
the foundation of their research and to work at regional to global
scales. Examples of research foci can include, but are not limited to:
i) interactions among climate and atmospheric constituents, such as
greenhouse gases and aerosols; ii) the dynamics of extreme weather and
climate events; iii) ocean-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks on
global climate; and iv) climate interactions with, and impacts on, soils
and ecosystems. It is desirable that the candidate’s research generate
results that can be used by policy makers to enhance sustainable
development of resources. The incumbent would be expected to bridge past
and future climate change research being conducted at UCR, participate
in both the undergraduate and graduate programs in Earth
Sciences—including the newly established Environmental Dynamics and
Geo-Ecology Institute (<http://edge.ucr.edu/>)—and offer courses on
climate change and sustainability within their field of expertise.

A Ph.D. in atmospheric science, environmental science, oceanography, or
a related science discipline is required.  Applications must include a
cover letter, curriculum vita, statements of research and teaching
interests, a statement of contributions to diversity, and three letters
of recommendation.  All application materials must be submitted through
AP Recruit at: https://aprecruit.ucr.edu/apply/JPF00678. Advancement
through the faculty ranks at the University of California is through a
series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring every 2-3
years, each of which includes substantial peer input.

For more information about the position, please contact the Search
Committee Chair, Dr. Robert Allen, Department of Earth Sciences, at
robert.allen@ucr.edu <mailto:robert.allen@ucr.edu>.  For questions on
application procedures and requirements, please contact Mary Stuart,
Academic Personnel Coordinator, at mary.stuart@ucr.edu
<mailto:mary.stuart@ucr.edu>. Review of applications will begin on
January 9, 2017, and will continue until the position is filled.
