Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in the College of the Environment - Polar Climate Dynamics, Polar Marine Ecosystems
Note new closing date: January 25th
The College of the Environment at the University of Washington invites applications for three 9-month, tenure-track positions (Assistant Professor). Successful candidates will be expected to enhance the University of Washington’s multi-disciplinary research in polar science, to develop a funded research program, to mentor the next generation of scientists, and to contribute to education at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
The University of Washington promotes research and education to serve an increasingly diverse population of students, staff, and the public. For all of the positions described below, we seek applicants who are committed to engaging culturally and ethnically diverse audiences.
The University of Washington is recognized for supporting the work-life balance of its faculty and is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. A PhD is required at the time of appointment.
Polar Marine Ecosystems. We seek an integrative scientist who will contribute to an understanding of biological processes and ongoing changes in high-latitude marine ecosystems. Research approaches could include field observations, remote sensing, or modeling. This appointment is expected to be made jointly between the School of Oceanography and School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences, though an appointment with a different College of the Environment unit is also possible. Applicants should describe how their research and teaching will enhance collaborative linkages among disciplines. Send curriculum vitae, description of research and teaching interests, and the names of four references, addressed to Polar Marine Ecosystem Search. Electronic materials are preferred; send to qrc at uw.edu. Hard copies can be sent to Quaternary Research Center, University of Washington, Box 351310, Seattle, WA98195-1310. Preference will be given to applications received prior to January 25th, 2014.
Polar Climate (Ocean-Ice-Atmosphere) Dynamics. We seek applicants whose research contributes to quantitative understanding of coupled dynamical processes at high latitudes. Examples of relevant research areas include the polar heat and water budget, interacting ocean-atmosphere circulation dynamics, albedo changes at sea or on land, and ocean-ice sheet interactions. Approaches could include field observations, analysis of remotely-sensed observations, or modeling. This appointment will be joint between two of the following three academic units: Atmospheric Sciences, Oceanography, and Earth and Space Sciences. Applicants should describe how their research and teaching will enhance collaborative linkages among disciplines. Send curriculum vitae, description of research and teaching interests, and the names of four references, addressed to Polar Climate Dynamics Search. Electronic materials are preferred and may be sent to qrc at uw.edu. Hard copies can be sent to Quaternary Research Center, University of Washington, Box 351310, Seattle, WA 98195-1310. Preference will be given to applications received prior to January 25th, 2014.
