FIRST POSITION

UC San Diego – Tenured Professor for Interdisciplinary Initiative in
Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation: Human Health and Climate Change

The new appointments will carry out interdisciplinary research relevant
to the effects of climate change on human health. Research will focus on
the relationship between climate change, environmental quality and human
health – with particular interest in population level effects. This can
include direct and indirect impacts on health. The role of public health
and policy makers in limiting these impacts along with the social,
economic, and political barriers to their implementation will be
considered. Faculty focused on adaptation to climate change, extreme
weather, air pollution, coastal flooding, and other environmental
factors within the context of health studies are being sought through
this announcement.

The candidates for tenured positions must have demonstrated a track
record of accomplishments, independence and leadership in research
relevant to this position commensurate with their current career level.
All candidates must have a PhD in a relevant discipline such as
epidemiology, toxicology, economics, or environmental
sciences.Scientific independence and creativity evidenced by strong
publication and extramural funding history is expected.The candidate is
expected to develop the area of health and climate change and
demonstrate expertise in methodological approaches in environmental health.

The candidate will be expected to collaborate with different disciplines
across campus, and is expected to divide their time between two (or
more) disciplines including a discipline other than health as this is a
joint position established for the purpose of promoting
multidisciplinary research, and teaching at the undergraduate and
graduate levels.

The preferred candidates will have demonstrated strong leadership or a
commitment to support diversity, equity, and inclusion in an academic
setting.

The level of appointment and salary is commensurate with qualifications
and based on UC pay schedules.

The University of California, San Diego has made an unprecedented
commitment to understanding climate change impacts through long term
global observations and modeling and addressing these impacts through
the development of scalable adaptation tools and solutions. We invite
applications from outstanding candidates for several new faculty
positions. These positions are part of a bold multi-discipline,
multi-year initiative that spans the entire University. Each appointment
will be made jointly between at least two departments from across the
campus in order to facilitate collaborations in new inter-disciplinary
fields. They include but are not limited to the Scripps Institution of
Oceanography (SIO), Health Sciences (School of Medicine and Skaggs
School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences), the Jacobs School of
Engineering, the Division of Biological Sciences, the Division of
Physical Sciences, the Division of Arts and Humanities, the Division of
Social Sciences and the School of Global Policy and Strategy. The
initiative in climate change impacts and adaptation seeks to build on
existing cross-disciplinary strengths to understand the implications of
climate change and address the planet’s most pressing climate related
needs with actionable adaptation strategies. The initiative will
leverage UC San Diego’s existing strategic partnerships to inform
climate change policy and adaptation decisions at multiple levels –
local, state, federal and international – and address issues related to
national security, public safety, global health, resilience and more. In
addition to these appointments, UC San Diego’s newly established Center
for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation demonstrates the
organization’s commitment to addressing the consequences of climate
change. Appointments generally will be at the Assistant or Associate
Professorial level and in exceptional cases at the very early
Professorial level. UCSD is committed to academic excellence and
diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.

There will be four focus areas within the climate change impacts and
adaptation initiative:

1) Human health and climate change

2) Hazards from climate impacts in the natural and built environment

3) Biological, ecological and human adaptation to climate change

4) Sensor and platform development to monitor the changing environment

Candidates may submit an application to one or more of these areas.
