Candidates should be pursuing hypothesis driven research on analyzing, designing and visualizing spatial complexity in environmental systems for sustainability efforts. Topic areas include, but are not limited to, data science techniques, digital and critical cartography, and how humans understand and communicate spatial relationships.
Assistant/Associate Professor in Energy Systems Analysis. We seek a scholar with demonstrated excellence in research and teaching in the energy systems analysis field. This position focuses on integration across technology, science and policy, toward a goal of accelerating adoption of renewable energy technology, energy efficiency, energy demand shifts, and other climate mitigation strategies. Examples of relevant methods/areas of expertise include system dynamics, agent-based modeling, decision-support, life cycle assessment, techno-economic analysis, and policy analysis and design.
Assistant/Associate Professor in Spatial Science of Coupled Natural-Human Systems. We seek applicants whose work advances the frontiers of knowledge in natural-human system processes and relationships at diverse scales using theories, methods, and tools of spatial science. Topical areas of interest are broad. These could include human dimensions of global change as they relate to biodiversity loss, land-cover/land-use change, urbanization, climate change, ecosystem services and valuation,
material and energy flows, and environmental degradation, among others.
Assistant Professor in Water Policy, Politics and Planning, focused on water policy and collective decision-making processes that enable sustainable resource management. Preference will be given to candidates that understand water systems and policy interventions worldwide but have a particular depth in North American policy, institutions and politics.
