The Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering and Technology announce a cross-college cluster hire in Water Resources. Applicants are invited for an associate or full professor position in the area of water resources research. The initial senior hire, whose position will begin August 13, 2018, will be tenured in the Department of Geography, Planning, and Environment. Additional searches will be initiated in Fall 2018 with the aid and input of this hire. Additional positions will include one faculty member each in the Departments of Chemistry, Engineering, and Geological Sciences.
In addition to developing and managing collaborative externally-funded research projects, the individual will teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the candidate's area of expertise and provide service to ECU and the profession. The faculty member will also be expected to take a leadership role in the water resources cluster and as such would have a reduced teaching role commensurate with a sustained successful research track-record and effective management of the cluster.
Special Instructions To Application:
Applications must be submitted online at www.jobs.ecu.edu, and should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, including a vision for the direction of the cluster, statement of teaching interests, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and the names and contact information for three current references. An official transcript and three hard copy original letters of reference are required upon employment. Qualifying degrees must be received from appropriately accredited institutions.
Questions may be addressed to Prof. Cindy Putnam-Evans, search committee chair (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of applications will begin November 15, 2017, and the position will remain open until filled.
The initial senior hire must have a PhD in Geography, Planning, Natural Resource Management, or a related field, such as Environmental Management and/or Policy. A range of specializations will be considered, but there is a keen interest in candidates with a nationally/internationally recognized externally-funded research agenda that centers on water resources policy and management. Active, portable funding is a requirement. Individuals applying to this position must also have proven experience in leading and working with interdisciplinary teams on water-related topics.
