The University of Utah is seeking applicants for a tenure-track faculty position in Earth system science at the advanced Assistant or Associate Professor level to begin in July 2017. This position is associated with an interdisciplinary faculty cluster in the area of Society, Water, and Climate (SWC). Candidates should have demonstrated evidence of creative research in their discipline as well as the ability to engage across disciplinary boundaries with those in other SWC-relevant fields.

The successful candidate will conduct quantitative research in the areas of climate science or the hydrological cycle related to societal and environmental change. Research involving field, experimental, or modeling techniques is welcomed, but preference will be given to those whose work places significant emphasis on numerical modeling and/or quantitative analysis of large, distributed data sets. Potential home departments include Atmospheric Sciences, Geology and Geophysics, and Geography.

The SWC cluster connects research on ecology, hydrology, air quality, climate change, societal response, and policy, melding multiple scientific perspectives to lead society towards sustainable solutions in a changing world. This interdisciplinary hiring initiative is focused on enhancing the University of Utah's core commitment to sustainability and complementing ongoing, related research across departments, colleges, and centers on campus. The University of Utah has hired an ecohydrologist, atmospheric scientist, and a glaciologist as part of the first round of funding. We are concurrently searching for a social scientist as part of the SWC cluster. A full description of the SWC team can be found at http://www.utah.edu/faculty/swc/.

The University of Utah is committed to providing resources to support and grow the SWC cluster. An interdisciplinary committee composed of social and natural scientists will review the applications. The successful candidate must demonstrate potential for genuine collaboration in the SWC cluster.

The University of Utah is a comprehensive and diverse Research I public institution located in the Wasatch Front urban corridor with easy access to research and recreational opportunities in the Rocky Mountains, Great Basin, and the Colorado Plateau. Salt Lake City is a dynamic, high-tech, and bike-friendly metropolitan area with high-quality cultural and entertainment amenities, an extensive public transit system, a sunny, dry four-season climate, and "the Greatest Snow on Earth." With an enrollment of 30,000 students, it is the flagship University for the State of Utah. The University of Utah is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and educator. Minorities, women, veterans, and those with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Veterans' preference is extended to qualified veterans. Reasonable disability accommodations will be provided with adequate notice.
