The Department of Ecosystem Science and Management and the Penn State
Institutes for Energy and the Environment (PSIEE) at The Pennsylvania State
University invite applications for a faculty position in hydrological
sciences. The position will be filled at the Assistant Professor level,
commensurate with experience, on a 36-week academic year appointment, with
75% research and 25% teaching responsibilities. The position will be
co-funded by the College of Agricultural Sciences and PSIEE, with the tenure
home residing in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management. We are
seeking an outstanding candidate with a demonstrated interest in forested
ecosystems, and having a background in hydrology and ecosystem sciences.
Research expertise is desired in areas such as ecohydrology, forest
hydrology, integrated water resources management, isotope hydrology,
limnology, watershed modeling, or watershed processes. The successful
candidate will be expected to develop strong, interdisciplinary research
collaborations on campus, and to develop a nationally recognized, externally
funded, interdisciplinary research program engaging graduate students.
Candidates will be expected to engage in instruction at both the
undergraduate and graduate levels and enhance the Department's existing
curriculum, and to maintain high pedagogical standards in the courses being
taught. The position will include other faculty-related activities,
including advising undergraduate students and service on departmental
committees. The successful candidate will complement and advance existing
water- and energy-related research and education activities within the Penn
State Institutes of Energy and the Environment (PSIEE;
http://www.psiee.psu.edu). This position is one of four new faculty
positions in water science, engineering, and policy that will be filled over
the next three years in conjunction with the creation of a new
interdisciplinary PSIEE Water Institute. This water initiative serves to
expand the already strong and diverse interdisciplinary program of water and
energy research and education at Penn State. A Ph.D. is required at time of
appointment. Post-doctoral or academic experience and extramural grant
writing experience are desired. The ability to communicate effectively, to
provide leadership, and to contribute to the land-grant mission of the
University is important. An ability to relate to a diverse population of
faculty, staff, and students is required. Applications review will begin
August 30, 2015, though review will continue until the position is filled.
Candidates will need to upload a curriculum vitae, copies of transcripts,
statements of teaching and research experiences and interests, up to three
relevant publications, and a list of references.
