The Department of Geography, University of Nevada, seeks applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment at the Assistant Professor level in the area of climate science with an expected start date of July 1, 2013. We seek applicants with broad research interests in processes and mechanisms of climate science, such as interannual to multidecadal climate variability, interactions between Earth’s atmosphere, oceans, and land surfaces, regional-scale weather and climate processes in natural and human-modified landscapes, long-term coupling and feedbacks between climate and landscape evolution; and/or hydroclimatology of arid and semiarid regions. The successful candidate will have strong quantitative skills, interest in collaborating with a range of natural and social scientists on interdisciplinary topics, and a commitment to quality teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. A demonstrated track record in research and teaching is preferred. Candidates will be evaluated on previous experience, communication skills, publication record, grant and contract activities, ability to work both collaboratively and independently and personal area of expertise that complements existing faculty. We seek a candidate who will develop their own externally funded research projects as well as be willing to work collaboratively with department faculty and contribute to existing projects.
