The Department of Geography and Geographic Information Science (GGIS),
in the School of Earth, Society, & Environment, invites applications
for a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor in ecogeomorphology
of river and watershed systems. Relevant areas of research include,
but are not limited to: the structuring of river and watershed systems
through interactions among plants, animals and geomorphological
processes; the relevance of an integrated understanding of ecological
and geomorphological dynamics to river/watershed management and
restoration; and the resilience of coupled ecological and
geomorphological processes within river/watershed systems to climate
change and human impacts. We especially seek candidates with strong
field, modeling, GIS, and/or remote sensing skills.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is the flagship campus
of the University of Illinois system and offers an extraordinary
environment for ecogeomorphological research and education. GGIS has a
strong, highly ranked research and education program focusing on
river, watershed, and landscape dynamics.  This program is connected
to related campus programs on river, watershed, and ecological systems
anchored in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the
Illinois State Water Survey, the Illinois State Geological Survey, the
USGS Water Science Center, the Department of Geology, the National
Great Rivers Research and Education Center, the Department of Plant
Biology, the Illinois Natural History Survey, and the Department of
Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (NRES).  The
ecogemorphology position is part of a campus cluster-hire initiative
on Water, Life, and Land Interactions that includes a companion
position focusing on ecohydrology in NRES.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop an externally
funded research program and teach at undergraduate and graduate
levels. A Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment. Applicants are
expected to present evidence of excellence in research and teaching.
The target starting date is August 16, 2015. Salary is commensurate
with qualifications.
To apply, create your candidate profile through
http://jobs.illinois.edu and submit your application materials: Letter
of application, CV, up to 3 representative publications, statement of
teaching and research interests, and contact information for three
professional references.  Referees will be contacted electronically
upon the submission of the application. Applicants are highly
encouraged to submit applications early to ensure that referees have
enough time to submit letters of recommendation.

To ensure full consideration, all required application materials must
be submitted by October 12, 2014, with interviews likely in November
2014. Letters of references should be received by October 17, 2014.
Inquiries about the position are encouraged to the Ecogeomorphology
Search Committee Chair at geograph at illinois.edu.
