Dear ESWN community,

Please forward this advertisement to those that may be interested.

The Department of Geology and Planetary Science (http://www.geology.pitt.edu<http://www.geology.pitt.edu/>) at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level to expand and enhance our current research expertise in Geoscience and Environmental Sustainability.  We seek an individual working on global-scale issues that tie geoscience research to quantitative sustainability themes.  Research directions that integrate well with current departmental expertise include, but are not limited to, global geospatial analysis, remote sensing of atmospheric composition and natural disasters, climate change and glacial processes, and the relationship between hydrology, geomorphology, (bio)geochemistry in coupled natural-human systems.

We are particularly interested in individuals that integrate quantitative field measurements with emerging research tools such as climate change/geohazard related modeling using orbital/airborne LiDAR and/or thermal IR, landscape evolution modeling, and modeling/measurements of regional to global-scale atmospheric fluxes.  It is expected that this hire will strengthen our existing interdisciplinary collaborations with local and regional institutions including the Mascaro Center for Sustainability and Innovation at the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, the DOE-National Energy and Technology Laboratory, and the NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop an active, externally funded research program, including the supervision of M.S. and Ph.D. students and undergraduate research projects.  Teaching duties include undergraduate and graduate courses in the candidate's area of expertise.

Applicants should email the following materials to the Environmental Sustainability Search Committee at geolsrch at pitt.edu<mailto:geolsrch at pitt.edu> 1) a CV (including past and current grant support), 2) statements of research and teaching interests, 3) copies of three relevant publications, and 4) names and contact information of four references.  Questions regarding the position should be directed to Mark Abbott at mabbott1 at pitt.edu<mailto:mabbott1 at pitt.edu>, 412-624-8783.

Review of applicants will begin on January 1, 2014 and proceed until the position is filled.  A Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment, and the position begins in the fall term of 2014, subject to budgetary approval.

The University of Pittsburgh is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.  Applications from women and members of minority groups are especially encouraged.

Thank you,
Emily Elliott
