The Earth Research Institute (ERI; www.eri.ucsb.edu) at the University of
California, Santa Barbara invites applications for a tenure-track faculty
position in Environmental Data Science and Informatics at the rank of
Assistant Professor. We seek a highly creative and interactive scholar
whose research and teaching interests are focused on innovative approaches
for theoretical, empirical, and computational analyses in Earth and
Environmental Sciences and whose research addresses dynamics at any scale -
from individual organisms to the entire globe. In particular, we are
interested in candidates who are developing novel insight related to
environmental topics in areas including - but not limited to -
computational ecology, ecological modeling, social-ecological systems, and
the human ecology of infectious diseases. The ability to contribute to
existing campus-wide environmental and ecological research initiatives,
including the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS,
https://www.nceas.ucsb.edu), is highly desired.

The successful candidate will conduct research relevant to one of the core
themes of ERI - Natural Hazards, Human Impacts, Earth System Science, and
Earth Evolution - and will hold a faculty appointment in an academic
department that participates in ERI. The candidate will be expected to
develop an internationally-recognized and extramurally-funded research
program, mentor graduate and undergraduate students in the candidate’s area
of expertise, and teach both graduate and undergraduate courses. A Ph.D. in
an appropriate field is required at the time of appointment.

Applicants should submit: 1) an application letter, 2) a curriculum vitae,
3) a statement of research accomplishments and future plans which addresses
both the candidate’s vision for the future of environmental data science
and how their efforts will contribute to the field, 4) a statement of
teaching experience and interests, 5) an optional statement describing
commitment to diversity, 6) up to three selected publications, and 7) names
and contact information of at least three persons willing to provide
letters of reference (the committee will solicit letters for a short list
of candidates).

Submit applications electronically at https://recruit.ap.ucsb.
edu/apply/JPF01060, and address questions to EnvironmentalDataSearch@
eri.ucsb.edu. Applications completed by November 15th, 2017 will receive
priority consideration, but the position will remain open until filled. The
effective start date of the position is July 1, 2018.

The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to
the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research,
teaching, and service.
