Job Available: Faculty Position on Hydrology & Climate Change Research at University of Washington

Job Description
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) at the University of Washington (UW) invites applications at the Research Assistant or Research Associate Professor level in the general area of hydrologic modeling and prediction and hydrologic aspects of climate change. The responsibilities would include development of macroscale hydrologic prediction models with particular attention to hydrologic processes in polar regions, modeling of land-atmosphere interactions, and prediction of hydrologic impacts of climate change. The general areas of expertise essential for this position are understanding hydrologic computation methods, handling of large (e.g. remote sensing and spatially distributed model output) data sets, and hydrologic and/or water resources prediction skills. A Ph.D. in hydrology or a closely related discipline is required by the date of appointment, as is a strong record of scientific publication.

Initial funding (first year) for the position would come from a current DOE-funded regional arctic climate modeling project being carried out within CEE, but the successful candidate would be expected to develop his or her own research funding in related areas. The successful candidate is expected to fund and supervise graduate students, as well as to participate in professional activities.

Applications should include a cover letter, CV, a concise personal statement describing the candidate’s vision for research and education and potential areas of collaboration within and outside of the department, and a list of at least four references. Applicant review will begin February 22, 2013 and continue until the position is filled. Applications must be submitted at www.engr.washington.edu/facsearch/apply.phtml?pos_id=128. Questions regarding the application process may be directed to search@ce.washington.edu.

The UW is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty and staff committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, individuals with disabilities and covered veterans. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service. The UW is a recipient of a National Science Foundation ADVANCE Institutional Transformation Award to increase the participation of women in academic science and engineering careers. The UW is an EO/AA Employer

All positions are contingent on the availability of funding.
