The School of Geography & Development at the University of Arizona seeks to fill an Assistant Professor, tenure-eligible, position in physical geography. The successful candidate will contribute to the vigorous interdisciplinary environmental programs within the School of Geography & Development, across the University, and with other institutions. We seek an interdisciplinary physical or environmental scientist whose research addresses one or more of the following: climate and land cover dynamics, earth surface processes (e.g., exchanges at the biosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interfaces), climate variability and change, or a subset of these topics. The successful candidate will bring strong field and/or spatiotemporal analysis skills (e.g., remote sensing, GIScience, time-series statistics, modeling, use of R, etc.). We expect the candidate to continue in the UA tradition of collaborative integration across physical and social sciences. We seek someone whose research interests complement existing departmental and university strengths in environmental and earth science that include water resources and hydrology, paleoenvironments, climate and meteorology, forest and ecosystem processes, climate-disease dynamics, and urban systems. We are especially interested in individuals whose research addresses broader impacts and societal relevance. The successful candidate should have a strong track record of, or great promise for, an upward trajectory of funded research, excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching, and superior student advising and mentoring. Ph.D. in geography or appropriate field of environmental science is required. To apply go to www.UACareers.com/54366. Review begins 2/24/14. The University of Arizona is an EEO/AA - M/W/D/V Employer.
