Assistant Professor in Physical Geography, University of Colorado – Boulder

Boulder, CO

Organization: University of Colorado – Boulder

Duties: We seek to hire an assistant professor of physical geography with a research focus on surface water processes, fluvial geomorphology, and river responses to environmental change. This physical geographer will combine field and/or lab-based research with geospatial modeling techniques to understand processes governing the movement of water, sediment and nutrients through river systems. The normal teaching load is three classes per year, including a large introductory physical geography course on Landscapes and Water. The successful candidate is expected to be effective in raising external research funding.

Desired qualifications: A Ph.D. in Geography or related field is required by the time of appointment. The applicant should be an Earth scientist with training and experience in fluvial-hydraulic processes, sediment transport, geomorphology, and quantitative methods, including numerical modeling methods and/or GIS. In addition, because society is dependent on healthy river systems, we seek a candidate whose work is relevant to broader societal issues.
