01/05/2017 - 14:20

The School of Geography & Development at the University of Arizona seeks to fill a tenured Associate or Full Professor position in the area of integrated land use or human-environment systems. We seek a senior physical or human-environmental scholar with a very strong track record of grants and publications who can contribute to interdisciplinary environmental research at the University of Arizona. We are especially interested in scholars whose research combines (a) the collection, use, and analysis of biophysical and social data, such as remotely sensed, census, survey, and ethnographic data, with (b) GIS, modeling, or other methods, with applications to environmental monitoring, assessment and management, policy, and/or international development. Substantive areas of research could include, but are not limited to: earth system modeling; biogeography; integrated food/energy/water systems; environmental health; smart cities; land use and conservation; forests and natural resources, environmental risk, and vulnerability. We expect the candidate to contribute to the UA tradition of collaborative integration across physical and social sciences. We seek someone whose research interests complement existing departmental and university strengths in environmental and earth science that include water resources and hydrology, paleoenvironments, climate and meteorology, forest and ecosystem processes, climate-disease dynamics, political ecology and development, and urban systems. We are especially interested in individuals whose research addresses broader impacts and societal relevance. Ph.D. in geography or appropriate field of environmental science is required.

Candidates should submit their statements of research and teaching interests, curriculum vitae, list of publications, and contact information for three referees, following the instructions at (Posting # F20821).  Other questions may be directed to Dr. Connie Woodhouse (, Chair of the Search Committee. The position will remain open until filled, but review of applications (and requests for letters of reference) will begin February 15, 2017, with interviews anticipated before mid-May.
