University of California, Berkeley

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.
