Two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions

The Department of Earth & Environment at Boston University is undertaking a major expansion in the field of climate change and invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions beginning July 2015. We seek scholars trained in a wide range of specializations including climate dynamics, recent climate history, hydroclimatology, and climate impacts and adaptations. We encourage applicants with interests in broader questions of the impacts of climate change on society (water resources, food, health, energy, land use), as well as those who complement existing strengths in remote sensing, coastal processes, and landscape evolution. We anticipate hiring additional scholars with expertise in climate change over the next several years. The successful applicant will be expected to supervise graduate research in Ph.D. programs, teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and maintain an externally funded research program. We seek applicants whose research complements strengths in the Department and around the University. For more information about the Department, see http://www.bu.edu/earth. A Ph.D. at the time of appointment is required. Please apply online at https://academicjobsonline.org/4439, including a curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests, and the names and addresses of at least three referees. Should you have questions about the position, please feel free to contact Anthony Janetos, Search Committee Chair, Department of Earth and Environment, Boston University, 685 Commonwealth Ave, Boston MA 02215; email: earth@bu.edu. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2014. Women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
