Categoria: Opportunità di Lavoro

Data evento: 02 Dic 2010 – 23 Gen 2010
Oregon State University’s Division of Earth Systems Science invites applications for an Assistant Professor. This is a 0.75 FTE, 12-month or 1.0 FTE, 9-month tenure-track position (at the discretion of the Department Head). Though this tenure track position will be offered at 0.75 FTE, the incumbent is authorized and encouraged to increase his/her working FTE up to 1.0 by securing other sources of funding for the additional 0.25 FTE. The Division seeks an individual to develop vigorous research, teaching, and outreach programs focused on earth systems modeling, specifically terrestrial biophysics-biogeochemistry modeling at multiple scales that incorporates spatial and in situ observations.
Applications are encouraged from individuals representing terrestrial and atmospheric sciences, particularly those with expertise in regional to global scale simulation of terrestrial ecosystem carbon, water and energy exchange in response to climate change, and how they interact with climate in terms of radiative forcing from terrestrial carbon sources and sinks, albedo, and anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Multi-scale analysis and coupled climate-land surface modeling are of particular interest. Incumbent must have at least 2 years experience in spatial applications of biophysics-biogeochemistry modeling at regional to continental scales.
A PhD in earth systems modeling, biogeochemistry, environmental physics or closely related area is required prior to the start of the appointment. The major selection criteria will be demonstrated excellence in research suggestive of future leadership in the field. The individual will be expected to contribute to teaching a core undergraduate course and an advanced graduate-level course on biophysics-biogeochemistry modeling.
