*Open-Rank Faculty Position *


The Department of Environmental Sciences at UCR proposes to recruit a 
faculty member in the broadly defined area of Climate Change and 
Sustainability, whose expertise is interdisciplinary and will complement 
existing strengths on the campus. This is an open rank position and 
appointment can be made at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor 
level. The appointment will consist of a split 0.5 FTE I&R (Instruction 
and Research) and 0.5 FTE OR (Organized Research) appointment in the 
Agricultural Experiment Station (http://cnas.ucr.edu/about/aes/) 
<http://cnas.ucr.edu/about/aes/>. *

*Position Description: *Climate change is the most pressing problem 
threatening the life-support systems of the earth. During the 21^st 
century, the safe operating limits for climate and other critical 
global–scale processes are likely to be crossed unless societies embrace 
sustainable practices for energy generation, food production (land-based 
agriculture and seafood), management of water resources and conservation 
of biodiversity. Sustainable development requires a deep understanding 
of how large-scale changes in the earth system will interlink and impact 
human society.

We seek to hire a faculty member in Climate Change and Sustainability, 
working at broad spatial scales, and with expertise in two or more of 
the following fields of inquiry: atmospheric science, climate modeling, 
earth system science, oceanography, biogeochemistry, sustainability 
science and/or ecosystem science.The candidate is expected to use 
state-of-the art measurements or models as the foundation of his/her 
research and to work at regional to global scales. Examples of research 
foci can include, but are not limited to: i) interactions among 
emissions of greenhouse gases and aerosols (both natural and 
anthropogenic) and climate, ii) in-situ measurements or remote sensing 
of greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural activities and animal 
feeding facilities, iii) field-measurements or modeling of aerosols’ 
indirect effects on climate, e.g., cloud formation, cloud lifetime, and 
precipitation, iv) modeling the feedbacks between natural (biogenic, 
dust, or wildfire emissions)/anthropogenic emissions and climate, v) 
development of sustainable energy, agricultural or water infrastructure 
and vi) research on ocean-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks on 
global climate. It is desirable that the candidate’s research generate 
results that can be used by policy makers to enhance sustainable 
development of resources. The incumbent would participate in both the 
undergraduate and graduate programs in Environmental Sciences and offer 
courses on climate change and sustainability within their field of 

*Application:* A Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences, environmental sciences, 
oceanography, ecosystem science, sustainability science or a related 
discipline is required. Evaluation of applications will begin on January 
11, 2016, but the position will remain open until filled. Applicants 
must include a vita, statements of research and teaching interests, and 
provide the names and addresses of at least 3 references.For appointment
