Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI) and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at Princeton University seek outstanding applications for a new faculty position in water science. The position is a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, with a preferred start date of September 1, 2014. The successful candidate will have a PhD in an appropriate field and a proven record of innovation and creativity in conducting quantitative research addressing important and emerging topics within the broad scope of hydrological sciences. Areas of interest include: (1) water and climate, (2) water and energy, (3) water and environmental quality, (4) water and ecosystem integrity, and (5) water and food security.
In all cases, it is expected that the candidate would be able to immediately make meaningful contributions to the diverse, interdisciplinary environmental research and teaching mission of PEI and CEE's Environmental Engineering and Water Resources Program (EEWR). PEI is the interdisciplinary center of environmental research, education, and outreach at Princeton University. PEI's mission is to advance knowledge and to develop the next generation of leadership by providing outstanding academic programs and opportunities for advanced scholarship, research, and civic engagement. The goal of CEE's EEWR program is to train outstanding engineers and scientists and to conduct advanced research in areas that are vital to national and international needs in the areas of environmental engineering and water resources. A successful candidate will be expected to complement existing strengths in the program, which include environmental problems in areas such as ecohydrology, land surface - atmosphere interactions including energy and moisture fluxes and their relationship to large-scale climate modeling, remote sensing of environmental variables such as soil moisture and rainfall intensity, carbon mitigation and climate change, subsurface flows & reactive transport, atmospheric dynamics and atmospheric chemistry, the urban environment, and biogeochemistry of contaminated waters.
Applicants should apply online at https://jobs.princeton.edu, requisition number 1300834; and should submit their CV, contact information for five references, and separate statements of research and teaching vision. The statements of research and teaching vision should include the candidate's sense of the field and his or her vision for advancing in the context of such a position.
