Assistant Professor positions – University of California, Irvine
Two tenure track Assistant Professors in Earth System Science at University of California, Irvine
The Earth System Science (ESS) Department at the University of California, Irvine seeks two faculty hires to bring new research on climate change, impacts and natural resources, and to strengthen the department’s commitment to understanding and teaching the science underpinning global change. ESS was founded twenty-two years ago with a focus on global environmental changes that occur on human time scales. Currently, the department has twenty-one full time faculty with research and teaching in climate dynamics, atmospheric chemistry, biogeochemistry of land and oceans, cryosphere, global water cycle, ecosystems and human systems (see http://www.ess.uci.edu/research). ESS faculty envision the next generation department as emphasizing how climate and land-use change of the 21st century can be best understood from a physical science perspective, but also focused on the processes and scales that impact people and resources. We seek new colleagues who will build on core strengths in observing and interpreting the Earth system, and in helping map the physical and biogeochemical changes onto a future world. Both positions are tenure track and at the assistant professor level. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a suitable discipline. Apply online at https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/ or firstname.lastname@example.org. The selection process begins 6 January 2014, and positions will remain open until filled.
