The Department of Geography at the University of Colorado Boulder encourages applications for a tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level in Physical Geography. The appointment begins in August 2021.
We are looking to hire a physical geographer who pursues societally relevant questions that help us better understand environmental and Earth systems, including how they are transformed by human-induced or other disturbances. Specific areas of research include, but are not limited to, soil science, biogeography, climatology, watershed science, and cryosphere science. The applicant should have training and experience in relevant research methods such as field methods, modeling, or remote sensing. As part of the normal teaching load of three courses per year, the successful candidate will rotate regularly into a large introductory physical geography class as well as upper-division classes in the candidate’s area of expertise. The successful candidate is expected to show promise in raising external research funding and will demonstrate success in supporting diversity and inclusive excellence through research, teaching, mentoring, or sponsoring relevant initiatives related to their scholarship or work.
