This search is part of an effort to elevate the University of Alabama’s visibility and impact in climate research including the analysis and interpretation of climate data, particularly concerning hydroclimatology, climate-health relationships, environmental health sciences, environmental epidemiology, climate-related food security, or climate modeling more broadly. The ideal candidate’s professional accomplishments include sustained success securing external funding, a nationally/internationally recognized profile, and a solid track record of successful graduate student recruitment and mentoring.
We seek a scholar who can take advantage of the collaborative opportunities on the Tuscaloosa campus, including those at the newly–formed Alabama Water Institute (http://ovpred.ua.edu/alabama-water-institute/) and Alabama Life Research Institute (http://ovpred.ua.edu/alabama-life-research-institute/), and the NOAA National Water Center (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/oh/nwc/). Candidates with research interests that also complement one or more of the department’s broader research foci, including water resources, human-environment systems, environmental management and change, or geographic information analysis (see http://geography.ua.edu/), are particularly encouraged to apply. A Ph.D. in Geography or closely related discipline is required. It is expected that the successful candidate will transfer an active research program to the University of Alabama.
