The Department of Earth Sciences at UCR is recruiting a faculty member 
in the broadly defined area of Climate Change and Sustainability. This 
is an academic year tenure track position at the Assistant Professor 
level and will be available July 1, 2017.

We seek to hire a faculty member in Climate Change and Sustainability, 
working at broad spatial scales over human-relevant time scales, and 
with expertise in one or more of the following fields:
climate dynamics, land and ocean surface processes, and ocean/atmosphere 
The candidate is expected to use state-of-the-art models and 
observations as the foundation of their research and to work at regional 
to global scales. Examples of research foci can include, but are not 
limited to:
i) interactions among climate and atmospheric constituents, such as 
gases and aerosols;
ii) the dynamics of extreme weather and climate events;
iii) ocean-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks on global climate; and
iv) climate interactions with, and impacts on, soils and ecosystems.

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 be expected to bridge past and future 
climate change research being conducted at UCR, participate in both the 
undergraduate and graduate programs in Earth Sciences—including the 
newly established Environmental Dynamics and Geo-Ecology Institute 
(http://edge.ucr.edu/ )— and offer courses on climate change and 
sustainability within their field of expertise.

A Ph.D. in atmospheric science, environmental science, oceanography, or 
a related science discipline is required.  Applications must include a 
cover letter, curriculum vita, statements of research and teaching 
interests, a statement of contributions to diversity, and three letters 
of recommendation.  All application materials must be submitted through 
AP Recruit at:
https://aprecruit.ucr.edu/apply/JPF00678 .
Advancement through the faculty ranks at the University of California is 
through a series of structured, merit-based evaluations, occurring
every 2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input.
