Available Faculty Positions

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) at the University of Rochester will be hiring two tenure-track assistant professors in the general fields of climate science and surface processes/geomorphology.

While the department welcomes all applicants whose research lies in thesegeneral fields, we are particularly interested in candidates who bridge solid earth and climate science disciplines.

In surface processes/geomorphology, we encourage interdisciplinary applicants who focus on the critical zone between solid Earth systems and the Earth’s fluid envelopes.

In climate science, we encourage applicants whose research focusses on the carbon cycle with emphasis on stabilizing atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, terrestrial carbon-climate feedbacks, linkages between carbon and other biogeochemical cycles, and connections between physical climate processes and carbon dynamics.

The start dates of the positions are July 1, 2020 and 2021. We are interested in dynamic researchers and educators who can establish an externally funded, internationally recognized research program.
