Faculty Position in Earth System Science / Coupled Human and Natural Systems
University of New Hampshire
The University of New Hampshire seeks outstanding applicants for an open-rank tenure/tenure track position that will enhance our existing strengths in earth and environmental sciences and engineering. The successful applicant will have demonstrated expertise in one or more of the following areas pertaining to Earth system science and the interface between human and natural systems: interactions between ecosystems and climate, human dimensions of global change, remote sensing and geospatial analysis, sustainability science, adaptation to climate change, social-ecological systems, land use/land cover dynamics, and process-based modeling of environmental change. Applicants coming from physical, ecological or social sciences and environmental engineering backgrounds are equally encouraged to apply, provided their interest is in working across traditional disciplinary boundaries to address pressing societal concerns involving human-driven environmental change. Applicants will be expected to join a state-wide team investigating "Interactions Among Climate, Land Use, Ecosystems Services and Society." It is anticipated that the network of collaborators participating in this project will provide abundant opportunity for the successful applicant to develop new initiatives in research and teaching and build a productive and rewarding career.
The position will be a joint appointment with a research program housed in UNH's Earth Systems Research Center and an academic appointment in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment, Civil Engineering, or Earth Sciences (depending on the interests and strengths of the successful candidate). In addition to establishing an independent, externally funded research program, the successful applicant will supervise students, and contribute to the teaching mission of the home Department.
Applications, consisting of a current curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, a teaching statement, and the names and contact information for three referees should be sent to:
