Tenure-Track Position in Ecosystem and Land Surface Modeling at San Diego State University
TENURE-TRACK POSITION IN ECOSYSTEM AND LAND SURFACE MODELING San Diego State University
The Ecological Program Area in the Department of Biology at San Diego State University invites applications for a tenure track Assistant or Associate Professor in Ecosystem and Land Surface Modeling, beginning in Fall 2015.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Biology, Ecology, Atmospheric Sciences, Geography, or a related field, and demonstrated strength in modeling ecosystem and/or biosphere-atmosphere interactions. Demonstrated research potential through a record of publications and funded grants is expected. Demonstrated experience in running dynamic vegetation models (DVM) and land surface models (such as NCAR CLM) to quantity biospheric feedbacks on the climate system is considered strongly beneficial. The successful candidate should be able to teach, or contribute to, undergraduate and graduate courses in ecology, such as: ecology, ecosystems, climate change, sustainability, biosphere-atmosphere interaction and/or numeric modeling. The successful candidate will join the Ecology Program Area of the Department of Biology with foci in Ecosystems and Climate Change, Behavioral Ecology, Coastal Marine Ecology, and Conservation Ecology. The successful candidate will participate in the nationally highly ranked SDSU joint PhD program in ecology and the master’s program in ecology.
The successful candidate will join and contribute to the recently established interdisciplinary Area of Excellence: The SDSU Center for Climate and Sustainability Studies (C2S2, http://c2s2.sdsu.edu ), interact with existing members as well as with new hires in Regional Climate Modeling and Scenarios (Department of Geography), Climate Interactions and Human Civilizations (Anthropology) and Climate Statistics (Mathematics and Statistics).
