The Department of Earth & Environment at Boston University is undertaking a major expansion in the field of climate change and invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions beginning July 2015. We seek scholars trained in a wide range of specializations including climate dynamics, recent climate history, hydroclimatology, and climate impacts and adaptations.

We encourage applicants with interests in broader questions of the impacts of climate change on society (water resources, food, health, energy, land use), as well as those who complement existing strengths in remote sensing, coastal processes, and landscape evolution. We anticipate hiring additional scholars with expertise in climate change over the next several years. The successful applicant will be expected to supervise graduate research in Ph.D. programs, teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and maintain an externally funded research program. We seek applicants whose research complements strengths in the Department and around the University.

For more information about the Department, see A Ph.D. at the time of appointment is required.
