	Position Summary:

	The Department of Soil Science seeks applications for a tenure track 
faculty position soil physics. Soil physics is a core research area in 
the Department of Soil Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, 
and this position is integral to undergraduate and graduate programs in 
soil and environmental sciences.

The candidate will explore topics in soil physics research such as: 
formation of soil structure in relation to clay, biota, and organic 
matter; modeling transport of water, energy, solutes, and particulates; 
soil sensor development; and soil management and resilience. The 
candidate should be able to work cross-disciplinary, improving linkages 
across the food-water-energy nexus. The teaching component of the 
position would entail at minimum an undergraduate/graduate level course 
and a graduate level course.

This position carries a commitment to the three functions of research, 
instruction, and outreach, as well as professional and university 
service as appropriate to faculty rank.

Principal duties:
1. Develop a strong program in soil physics research. The successful 
candidate will be expected to compete for national grants, such as those 
in NSF, NIH, and USDA, as well as collaborate with soil and 
environmental scientists throughout the University. The candidate is 
expected to become a leader in soil physics nationally and internationally.

2. The teaching component of the position entails an 
undergraduate/graduate level course (Principles of Soil and Water 
Management) and a graduate level course (Soil Physics). These courses 
are core in the soil science undergraduate and graduate degree programs. 
Additional teaching can occur in existing courses (e.g. Earth's Water, a 
high enrollment undergrad class) or through the development of new 
courses. In addition, the successful candidate will advise undergraduate 
and graduate students.
