Tenure-eligible (Open Rank) Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in 
forests, carbon & climate. 

The Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research at the University of Arizona seeks 
to fill a faculty position in areas related to processes, interactions 
and feedbacks among tree and forest growth, the carbon cycle and 
climate. We seek promising candidates at any career stage to build a 
successful and vibrant program that will contribute to vigorous 
multifaceted interdisciplinary research, teaching and service in 
environmental and earth system sciences on our campus. A Ph.D. in an 
applicable field of research expertise is required. 

We are especially interested in individuals whose research utilizes 
dendrochronology and/or tree-ring data in novel and effective 
combination with other analytical tools, methods and disciplines to 
address basic or applied questions, particularly related to our 
understanding of the processes controlling forest dynamics from the 
cellular to the global scale.Substantive areas of research could include 
linking ecophysiological or genomic processes to long-term tree growth; 
carbon budgets of forest ecosystems on intra-annual to centennial 
time-scales; tree-ring data and vegetation / climate model assimilation; 
carbon-cycle climate interactions; disturbance and dynamics in forest 
ecosystems. The new faculty member will demonstrate an exceptional 
record of research, evidenced by publications, grants, and mentorship, 
that advances UA’s strengths in environmental science and its commitment 
to mentoring and training its diverse student body. 

The University of Arizona is located in Tucson, Arizona, a culturally 
diverse, family-friendly city set in the natural beauty of the desert 
southwest. The University of Arizona is home to one of the largest and 
broadest concentrations of earth system research and education in the 
US, with world-class programs in fields including hydrology, atmospheric 
science, paleoclimatology, ecosystem ecology, earth system sciences and 
climate. This position is part of the University of Arizona’s WEES 
(Water, Energy and Environmental Solutions) Climate and Earth System 
initiative. This new faculty member will be based in the Laboratory of 
Tree-Ring Research (http://www.ltrr.arizona.edu/) with potential joint 
appointments in affiliated departments throughout campus. 

Duties include research, teaching and service. The successful candidate 
is expected to establish and maintain a highly visible, productive, 
collaborative, and externally funded research program, and disseminate 
research outcomes to the scientific community and the general public. 
They will contribute to bolstering an inclusive environment that 
encourages diversity and the integration of members of underrepresented 
groups within the university. The University of Arizona is a committed 
Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution. Women, minorities, 
veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply. 

Candidates should submit statements of research and teaching interests, 
curriculum vitae, publication list and contact information for three 
referees by March 1, 2017, following instructions at 
https://uacareers.com/postings/16258 where further details may be found. 
Other questions may be directed to Dr. Malcolm Hughes 
(mkh1@email.arizona.edu ), Search Committee Chair.
