Vacancy: Associate/Full professor – natural resource management

Job #JPF00197

School of Engineering – Engineering

Open Mar 9, 2015 through Jun 30, 2015


The University of California, Merced is creating a dynamic new
university campus and campus community in Merced, California, which
opened in September 2005 as the tenth campus of the University of
California and the first American research university built in the 21st
century. In keeping with the mission of the University to provide
teaching, research and public service of the highest quality, UC Merced
will be providing new educational opportunities at the undergraduate,
master’s and doctoral levels through three academic schools:
Engineering, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences/Humanities/Arts.

UC Merced invites applications for a ladder-rank faculty position at the
Associate or Full Professor level in Natural Resource Management of
Public Lands and Protected Areas. We seek a distinguished scholar who
will provide leadership in establishing a program of international
stature within the interdisciplinary area of adaptive management of
complex coupled human (legal, administrative, economic, cultural) and
natural (ecological, climatic, geologic, hydrologic) systems to sustain
native species, ecosystems, and landscapes, and to preserve cultural
heritage. We seek a leader in scholarship and practice that addresses
lands and resource management broadly in the context of changing global
earth systems and governance, including conservation, ecosystem services
and climate adaptation.

Appropriate candidates will have distinguished research, educational,
and leadership experience that emphasizes science, conservation, social
science, and/or management. The ideal candidate will bridge science and
management, and will lead efforts to develop interdisciplinary research
and education programs at UC Merced associated with science, management,
and sustainability of public lands and protected areas, such as national
parks. The Sierra Nevada Research Institute and other campus units
provide excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary research
collaboration as well as established collaborations with external
stakeholders. The campus’ proximity to Yosemite National Park and
several National Forests, and existing relationships with these
entities, provides an excellent opportunity to build partnerships for
research and practice in natural resource management in nearby parks and
protected areas.

The primary appointment may be in Natural Science, Social Sciences, or
Engineering, or may be a joint appointment between schools. The
successful candidate is expected to participate actively in the
development of innovative, interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate
programs in the future School of Management, and to contribute to the
teaching and mentoring of a diverse student population.

Requirements: Ph.D. in a relevant field and exemplary research,
publication, and teaching commensurate with a faculty appointment at the
University of California at the appropriate level.

Salary: Negotiable based on the University of California salary scale.

Deadline: Evaluation of applications will begin April 15, 2015, and will
remain open until filled.

Applications must be submitted via the website,
, and must include1) a
cover letter, 2) curriculum vitae 3) statement of research, 4) statement
of teaching, and 5) names of five references with contact information,
including mailing address, phone number, and email address.

opportunity employer with a strong institutional commitment to the
achievement of diversity among its faculty, staff, and students. The
University is supportive of dual career couples.

[Met-jobs] PhD and Postdoc Position in Atmospheric Science/Applied Statistics: Predictability of lightning in complex terrain

PhD and Postdoc Position: Predictability of lightning in complex terrain
University of Innsbruck, Austria: Institute of Meteorology and Department of Statistics

Summary: Three-year project for a PhD and Postdoc to explore how far into the future the predictability of thunderstorms and lightning over mountains extends. Embedded in a thriving larger research group working at the interface between atmospheric science and applied statistics.

We are looking for:

Candidates at the PhD or postdoc level: either from atmospheric sciences with a thorough statistical background or from applied statistics with good knowledge of flexible regression modeling (e.g., GAMs, path models, boosting, or Bayesian techniques) and interest in interdisciplinary work.

programming experience, preferably in R


Send a cover letter, resume/CV, and the names and contact details of two references to Review of applications will begin immediately but applications will be considered until at least 10 April 2015. References will not be contacted without prior notification of the candidates.


Severe convection can harm people and goods through accompanying lightning, gusts, hail and flooding. Reliable warning helps to reduce ensuing damage. While the small scale of convection limits predictability, persistent and recurring circulation patterns imposed by mountains might be able to extend predictability.

The main goal of the project is to determine how far into the future

summertime lightning can be predicted in the topographically complex eastern Alps. Lightning is chosen as proxy for severe convection since it is seamlessly observable in space and time with lightning detection networks. The project is part of a global effort to move from “warn-on-detection” of hazards from thunderstorms to “warn-on-forecast”. One wants to issue warnings before thunderstorms even form instead of when they are detected by radar.

Methodologically, advanced statistical methods will be used to formulate models that relate output from numerical weather prediction and meteorological observations to lightning measurements.

Postdoc Opportunity: Evolution of Arctic Hydrology and Geomorphology, Los Alamos National Lab

Evolution of Arctic Hydrology and Geomorphology

Detailed Description: This is a 2-year Postdoctoral Research Associate position at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Earth and Environmental Science Division, with the possibility of extension for a 3rd
year depending on available funding and performance. The postdoc will work on a project focused on the evolution of Arctic hydrology and geomorphology under changing climate, and their role in controlling the rate, timing and magnitude of terrestrial carbon
and energy fluxes in the Seward Peninsula of Alaska. The postdoc will have the opportunity to carry out and integrate field observations, remote sensing analysis, and prediction of thermal-hydro-mechanical processes. Her/his
hydrologic and geomorphic observations and analyses will be integrated with other research efforts in geophysical subsurface characterization, vegetation dynamics, the carbon cycle and energy balance, to advance understanding of climate impacts and feedbacks
in the terrestrial Arctic. The ultimate goal of the research is to improve representation of Arctic processes in IPCC-class Earth System Models.

Minimum Job Requirements: The project requires a candidate with strong hydrological and/or geomorphological field observation skills including designing and planning field campaigns, deploying field instrumentation
and analyzing and publishing field data. Proficiency programing and performing data analysis using tools such as C++, python, Matlab, IDL, ENVI, R or GIS is required. Ability to carry out physically demanding field research in semi-remote, challenging terrain
and weather conditions. Work within the requirements of a well defined safety plan.

Desired Skills: The successful candidate will have demonstrated the following: The ability and desire to work as a member of a team; scientific excellence as evidenced by submission and publication of first-author
papers in refereed journals; strong communication skills; prior research experience in Arctic terrestrial environments; remote sensing analysis and GIS experience.

Education: A Ph.D. in hydrology, geomorphology, ecohydrology, computational geosciences or closely related field.
