The Department of Ecosystem Science &; Management at the University of
Wyoming (ESM; uwyo.edu/esm [1]) is recruiting a tenure-track Assistant
Professor of Wildland Watershed Hydrology with a 50% Teaching, 50%Research
appointment. We are seeking a candidate who will bridge basic and applied
research in mountain hydrology with an emphasis on the use of computational
hydrology to better model and understand the fate and transport of water in
complex systems. High impact areas of research targeted with this hire
include integrating climate or management scenarios into dynamic hydrologic
models to provide potential future forecasts in water sustainability and the
use of sophisticated hydrologic and geophysical observational data to guide
model development.

The successful hire will have significant research support from the ongoing
UW-EPSCoR research initiatives in hydrology and geophysics
(WyCEHG; uwyo.edu/wycehg [2]) and be able to work collaboratively with the
growing body of computational scientists focusing on hydrology and natural
resources at UW. We are targeting an applicant who works productively in
collaborative and interdisciplinary teams, is able to communicate research
findings to a wide range of audiences, and conducts research in field-based
science and computational modeling. This position will teach within the ESM
department and is expected to provide teaching support to and participate in
the interdisciplinary graduate degree programs in water resources and
hydrology (uwyo.edu/ware; uwyo.edu/wrese [3]).

Required qualifications are an earned PhD at the time of hire in hydrology,
watershed management or a closely related area, a research focus on
hydrologic modeling, and evidence of research productivity in the form of
peer-reviewed journal publications. Preferred qualifications are evidence of
grantsmanship, research that spans traditional disciplinary boundaries, and
teaching at the undergraduate or graduate levels.

The University's policy has been, and will continue to be, one of

contingent upon the completion of the background check.

To apply, send a CV, statement of research interests, and contact
of three references via email to the search chair, Dr. Scott N. Miller,
of Ecosystem Science &; Management, University of Wyoming
at snmiller at uwyo.edu [4]. Review of applications will begin on March 29,
2014 but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
