[Met-jobs] Associate or Full Professor Position at Brown University (USA)

Forwarded from CLIMLIST…

Endowed Chair in Water Research

The Institute at Brown for Environment and Society jointly with the
Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences seek a leader
in the field of Physical Hydrology. The ideal candidate will be an
associate or full professor (or equivalent rank) who investigates the
fundamental physical processes that govern water movement and storage at
the Earth’s surface and shallow subsurface. We are particularly
interested in researchers who demonstrate a track record in problem
oriented collaborative research.

Active areas of enquiry may include observations and modeling of the
hydrological cycle to understand how regional to large-scale water
movement interacts with and reacts to the Earth’s climate, land use and
land cover change, and consumptive use at timescales of seasons to
centuries. Experience in applying these principles to societal problems
including water governance, resource management, future freshwater
availability, and food and water security is desirable. Applicants
should complement existing strengths in climate modeling, remote sensing
and geophysics.

The successful candidate will develop a vigorous research program that
significantly advances disciplinary knowledge in earth and environmental
sciences, and will actively engage in interdisciplinary collaborations
with faculty and students across the Institute.

A successful candidate must have an outstanding record of national and
international scholarly achievement, a proven record of successful
research funding, and demonstrated excellence in undergraduate and
graduate teaching and advising. Candidates are encouraged to contact
Professor Amanda Lynch, chair of the search committee, with questions
about the nature of the position.

All candidates should submit: (1) a cover letter describing their
interest in the position and any confidentiality requirements, (2) a
curriculum vitae, (3) a research statement, (4) a teaching statement,
and (5) the names of five references who would be contacted at the
appropriate time by the search committee. To receive full consideration
applications must be received by October 16, 2015. The search will
remain open until the position is filled or the search is closed. Brown
is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, and women and
minorities are encouraged to apply. Send materials to:
