Tenure Track Position
Director, Earth Science and Observation Center
Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences
University of Colorado Boulder
The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES, cires.colorado.edu), an interdisciplinary research institute within the University of Colorado Boulder, seeks to appoint a mid-career tenure-track faculty member to serve as director of its Earth Science and Observation Center (ESOC, cires.colorado.edu/esoc), a multidisciplinary research center that focuses on understanding the Earth primarily through the use of remote sensing techniques, often combined with in situ observations and modeling. The scientific specialty area of the candidate is open, but is expected to include experience with remote sensing tools and observations. The successful applicant will create a research program with productive collaborations within and outside CIRES that will lead to novel insights into Earth system processes and changes. Research areas that may be appropriate for this position include development and deployment of remote sensing instrumentation, analysis of diverse remotely sensed data sets, and modeling that focuses on the integration of such data sets. The successful candidate will be appointed within a tenured or tenure-track affiliation in a relevant academic department including, but not limited to, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Aerospace Engineering Sciences, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Geography or Geological Sciences. In addition to developing a robust research program and leading the center, the candidate will be required to teach undergraduate and graduate remote sensing courses in an academic department. Minimum academic requirements include a PhD with demonstrated research record in remote sensing.
