We seek a Full or Associate Professor with demonstrated abilities and
accomplishments in water-related sciences, outreach and education to
lead the graduate education component of the University’s water research
initiative. The University of Nevada has a long tradition in both
surface and subsurface hydrology. We seek to maintain these strengths
and grow into emerging areas including conjunctive water use, climate
change impacts on all aspects of the hydrologic cycle, and the
ecological attributes of aquatic ecosystems.
The new GPHS Director will be responsible
for administering the graduate program including finances, staff, and
students. This position will be housed in one of several water-centric
departments that best match the candidate’s background and interests.
These departments include, but are not limited to, Biology, Civil and
Environmental Engineering, Geography, Geology, and Natural Resources and
Environmental Science. We seek a candidate with effective leadership
skills, enthusiasm, and vision for growing an internationally
recognized, interdisciplinary water education program. The GPHS
Director is expected to maintain an active research program, teach at a
reduced load within their home department, and generate extramural
funding for graduate student training programs.
