The University of Virginia
College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences Department of Environmental
Sciences invites applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in
remote sensing of Earth surface processes. We seek candidates who are dedicated
to our mission and passionate about research and teaching in a world-class
institution. Examples of research areas that would strengthen and enhance our
existing program include, but are not limited to, the application of remote
sensing to hydrological, geomorphological, ecological, and atmospheric
processes, especially as related to land use, land surface, and climate change.
Regardless of research focus, we wish to hire an outstanding scientist who will
thrive in an interdisciplinary department.
In addition to developing external funding to support research endeavors,
candidates will be expected to teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels
and provide service to the University, Department, and professional
organizations.

appointment start date will be August 25, 2016. Applicants must be on track to
receive a Ph.D. in the relevant field by May 2016 and must hold a Ph.D. at the
time of appointment. Successful candidates will be expected to teach an
introductory course on remote sensing from a physical basis to upper-level
undergraduate and graduate students, along with a follow-on class on remote
sensing applications at a similar level.
