The department is seeking a computational and/or field scientist

Earth-environmental or human systems. Example areas of interest include
the impacts of climate on water resources and agriculture; climate
impacts on health; and land-atmosphere interactions, including
pollution. Other areas of specialization will be considered. The
candidate will be dynamic, innovative, and excellent in research and
teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Responsibilities for
the position include teaching two courses per semester during the
9-month academic year. Teaching responsibilities will include
introductory undergraduate core science courses, as well as advanced
undergraduate and graduate courses in the candidate’s area of
specialization. The candidate will need to demonstrate and value high
quality teaching and maintain an active research program that yields
publications and external grant submissions. Candidates must have a PhD
in geography or a related discipline at the time of appointment.

The GES department at CU Denver offers a BA in Geography (approximately
160 majors), a new MA in Applied Geography and Geospatial Sciences and a
MS in Environmental Science (approximately 60 graduate students).
Facilities include several teaching and research laboratories in
geospatial and physical sciences. See the GES website at
