Job Description

Assistant or Associate Professor of Geography (Physical Geography)

The Department of Geography at Syracuse University seeks to hire a physical geographer with expertise in climate change modeling and the study of climate science at the rank of assistant or associate professor. This is a tenure-track appointment. A Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment.

This recruitment is part of an ambitious Invest Syracuse Cluster Hire Initiative in the broad area of Global Environmental Change in the Anthropocene. As an integral part of this investment, Syracuse University will recruit multiple candidates for faculty positions for a research cluster in the area of Climate Change Science. Faculty hired into these positions will build on our existing strengths in the focus area and will participate in an organized research cluster that spans multiple departments in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, The College of Arts & Sciences, and the College of Engineering and Computer Science.

We seek a physical geographer whose research focuses on the quantitative study of climate change and future climate scenarios. We expect to hire a scholar poised to make significant theoretical contributions to understandings of climate dynamics relevant to predictions of climate change and its impacts. We are especially interested in candidates who connect their research to one or more of the following: climate-society interaction, science communication, and/or policy. Candidates should demonstrate clear evidence of a strong research program moving forward and significant promise in teaching at both advanced and introductory levels. Applications from candidates with experience in geospatial analyses and GIS, analysis of remote sensing products, and geovisualization and who can create synergies with big data and lab-based science programs such as physics and earth sciences are especially welcome. The ideal candidate will see synergistic opportunities with existing strengths in our Department, as well as with the Maxwell School’s commitment to socially relevant scholarship oriented toward public engagement, as appropriate.

Besides contributing to the Department’s research and teaching strengths in physical geography, we seek a scholar who might also contribute to initiatives across the Maxwell School. Opportunities for interdisciplinary research include the Center for Environmental Policy and Administration; the Center for Policy Research; and the Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Cooperation. Across Syracuse University, the Geography Department maintains collaborative links to programs ranging from earth sciences to physics to environmental engineering, as well as to the State University of New York – College of Environmental Science and Forestry. In addition, the successful candidate will contribute to a team of faculty advancing education and research on environmental and sustainability issues through the Environment, Sustainability, and Policy Integrated Learning Major housed in the Geography Department.

The Department strongly values excellent teaching, and the successful candidate will be expected to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses. Faculty members normally teach two courses per semester.
