Assistant Professor in Landscape Science
  • The Department of Environmental Sciences (EVSC) and the School of Architecture (SOA) at the University of Virginia invite applicants for an Assistant Professor in landscape science. We seek applicants whose research and teaching advance knowledge of environmental systems and address problems of societal relevance. The ideal candidate is an empirically oriented environmental scientist whose work addresses problems of regions, landscapes, or land-use patterns. This position is open to all areas of environmental sciences and will prioritize research and teaching in the ecologic, hydrologic, geologic, or atmospheric domains. (read full)

  • Postdoctoral Research Scholar in Urban Flux Measurements
  • An interdisciplinary team of faculty members across multiple schools at Arizona State University was recently awarded a five-year project titled Southwest Urban Corridor Integrated Field Laboratory (SW-IFL). This project is funded by the Environmental System Science Program of the Department of Energy (DOE). The goal of the project is to develop and deploy novel observational and modeling capabilities that improve understanding of extreme heat as a central driver of key environmental outcomes, including greenhouse gas emissions, urban water stress, and fate and transport of urban air pollutants in the complex Arizona megaregion, extending from the US-Mexico border to the Navajo Nation. The Postdoctoral Research Associate will be responsible for the deployment and analysis of new urban flux observations using the eddy covariance method as well as support other urban hydroclimatic measurements related to water, heat, and pollutants, including during intensive observation periods (IOPs).

  • Post-doctoral Scientist for Project on “Climate Legacies and the C Cycle”
  • An NSF Macrosystems project on “Climate legacies and timescales of influence on carbon cycle processes in drylands” is seeking to hire a postdoc at Northern Arizona University (NAU). The postdoc will participate in synthesizing climate data to identify extreme climate events in the western US, and will analyze tree-ring (tree growth, forest productivity) and/or ecosystem C flux (eddy flux towers) data to quantify legacies of climate extremes on C cycle components across a range of spatial and temporal scales. The postdoc will co-supervise student (undergraduate or masters) researchers and will potentially contribute to outreach and training activities. A PhD or equivalent in a relevant field is required, such as ecology, environmental science, forestry, statistics or data science, or informatics. (read full)
