The Department of Geography invites applications for a tenure-track position in Vegetation Modeling as part of a series of university-level strategic hires that are focused on environmental change. We are particularly interested in candidates who will advance our understanding of how climate and vegetation interact to explain landscapes of the past, present, and/or future. Successful candidates should have interests in analyzing climate-vegetation dynamics by using innovative modeling approaches, such as those that incorporate plant functional traits. Research and teaching expertise and interest in remote sensing and/or GIS is essential. Candidates are expected to have or be able to develop an excellent research program, with the ability to attract external funding.
Teaching duties will include both undergraduate and graduate courses. This hire is part of Indiana Universitys Prepared for Environmental Change Grand Challenges initiative (http://grandchallenges.iu.edu), which has received multi-million dollar funding. The candidate will join a growing community of colleagues across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, with opportunities for internal funding through the program.
