Tenure-eligible (Open Rank) Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in
forests, carbon & climate.
The Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research at the University of Arizona seeks
to fill a faculty position in areas related to processes, interactions
and feedbacks among tree and forest growth, the carbon cycle and
climate. We seek promising candidates at any career stage to build a
successful and vibrant program that will contribute to vigorous
multifaceted interdisciplinary research, teaching and service in
environmental and earth system sciences on our campus. A Ph.D. in an
applicable field of research expertise is required.
We are especially interested in individuals whose research utilizes
dendrochronology and/or tree-ring data in novel and effective
combination with other analytical tools, methods and disciplines to
address basic or applied questions, particularly related to our
understanding of the processes controlling forest dynamics from the
cellular to the global scale.Substantive areas of research could include
linking ecophysiological or genomic processes to long-term tree growth;
carbon budgets of forest ecosystems on intra-annual to centennial
time-scales; tree-ring data and vegetation / climate model assimilation;
carbon-cycle climate interactions; disturbance and dynamics in forest
ecosystems. The new faculty member will demonstrate an exceptional
record of research, evidenced by publications, grants, and mentorship,
that advances UA’s strengths in environmental science and its commitment
to mentoring and training its diverse student body.
The University of Arizona is located in Tucson, Arizona, a culturally
diverse, family-friendly city set in the natural beauty of the desert
southwest. The University of Arizona is home to one of the largest and
broadest concentrations of earth system research and education in the
US, with world-class programs in fields including hydrology, atmospheric
science, paleoclimatology, ecosystem ecology, earth system sciences and
climate. This position is part of the University of Arizona’s WEES
(Water, Energy and Environmental Solutions) Climate and Earth System
initiative. This new faculty member will be based in the Laboratory of
Tree-Ring Research (http://ift.tt/2kxRAP4) with potential joint
appointments in affiliated departments throughout campus.
Duties include research, teaching and service. The successful candidate
is expected to establish and maintain a highly visible, productive,
collaborative, and externally funded research program, and disseminate
research outcomes to the scientific community and the general public.
They will contribute to bolstering an inclusive environment that
encourages diversity and the integration of members of underrepresented
groups within the university. The University of Arizona is a committed
Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution. Women, minorities,
veterans and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
Candidates should submit statements of research and teaching interests,
curriculum vitae, publication list and contact information for three
referees by March 1, 2017, following instructions at
http://ift.tt/2k8kuZv where further details may be found.
