The Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) and Community Surface
Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) at the University of Colorado invite
applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in
Computational Earth-Surface Process Modeling, with an August 2019 start.
CSDMS is an NSF-sponsored facility that supports modeling and prediction of
erosion, transport, and deposition of sediment in landscapes and sedimentary
basins over a broad range of environments and time and space scales. The
candidate will join a team at INSTAAR at the University of Colorado,
Boulder, responsible for promoting the growth of CSDMS by developing
multidisciplinary and international collaboration in support of earth
surface processes modeling. We seek a scientist who takes advantage of new
opportunities in computing and remote sensing to advance understanding of
landscape, coastal, and/or seascape geomorphology and sediment dynamics.
Disciplinary areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
modeling of terrestrial, coastal, cryospheric, and/or marine processes; use
of high-resolution topographic data to test process models; earth surface
interactions with the climate system; modeling human impacts;
high-performance computing; and community scientific software development.
CSDMS is hosted at INSTAAR. The new assistant professor would be rostered in
the Research & Innovation Office (RIO) and also become a tenure-track
professor in one of INSTAAR's affiliated academic departments and programs
that best suits their training and interests (Geological Sciences; Civil,
Environmental, and Architectural Engineering; Atmospheric and Ocean
Sciences; Computer Science).
A strong commitment to teaching, and mentorship at the undergraduate and
graduate levels, and to outreach activities, is expected. The candidate is
expected to engage in development of coursework in his or her area of
research expertise, and to teach at the undergraduate and graduate level in
the home department. Incorporation of computing skills in undergraduate and
graduate curricula is desirable.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in geosciences, engineering, or related field
at the time of appointment. We seek a strong team player with excellent
communication and networking skills, who is focused on achieving
multidisciplinary research goals. We welcome candidates who will bring
diverse intellectual, geographical, gender, and ethnic perspectives to CSDMS
and the University of Colorado campus community.
