Dear Colleague,

Please distribute widely the link to the faculty opening (Assistant Professor) in the Energy and Resources Group:



Open Sep 26, 2014 through Nov 12, 2014

The Energy and Resources Group (ERG) at the University of California, Berkeley invites applications for an Assistant Professor position in quantitative environmental science, with an expected start date of July 1, 2015. ERG has a long and distinguished history of interdisciplinary research and teaching for a sustainable environment and an equitable society. Further information about ERG can be found athttp://erg.berkeley.edu. A competitive startup package including lab space will be offered with this position.

Basic qualifications: The basic qualification for this position is the completion of all Ph.D. or equivalent degree requirements, except the dissertation, at the time of application. A Ph.D. or equivalent degree, preferably in the physical, biological, or environmental sciences, is required by the date of hire. Training in multiple areas of the natural sciences (e.g., both physical and biological) is desirable.

Preferred qualifications: We are especially interested in candidates with quantitative expertise and interests in: ecology and biodiversity; global change science; toxics and pollutants; the environment-­‐society interface; or ecosystem services to society. The ideal candidate will have experience with some combination of experimental and observational field methods, techniques for analysis of large data sets, mathematical modeling, and methods in complex systems theory. ERG especially encourages applicants with a strong interest in multiple scales of analysis from local to global. ERG is an interdisciplinary graduate program, so an ability to actively engage with colleagues from other disciplines such as social science and engineering is highly desirable, as is a compelling interest and engagement in public policy.

Ideal candidates will have an outstanding research record with evidence of ongoing productivity. She or he will also have strong teaching and mentoring skills, or for those without an extensive background in teaching, a commitment to make this a core component of their professional portfolio. Teaching duties will include responsibility for the core ERG environmental science course, as well as development of a more specialized graduate-­‐level seminar or small lecture course, and participation in interdisciplinary seminars with other faculty.

ERG is interested in candidates who will bring to their research the perspective that comes from a non-­‐traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of those underrepresented in higher education. UC Berkeley is committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual career couples and single parents.
