The University of Utah has created a new, interdisciplinary faculty cluster focusing on Society, Water, and Climate (SWC). This transformative cluster connects research on ecology, hydrology, air quality, climate change, societal response, and policy, melding multiple scientific perspectives to lead society towards sustainable solutions in a changing world. This interdisciplinary cluster is focused on enhancing the University of Utah’s core commitment to sustainability, and complementing ongoing, related research across departments, colleges, and centers on campus. The University of Utah has hired an ecohydrologist, atmospheric scientist, and a glaciologist as part of the first round of funding. We are concurrently searching for an Earth system scientist as part of the SWC cluster. A full description of the SWC team can be found at http://www.utah.edu/faculty/swc/.
Here we are seeking Social or Behavioral Scientist applicants for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position at the advanced Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank to begin in July 2017. Candidates should have an excellent and sustained record of research, a demonstrated ability to generate extramural funding, and extensive experience in working with diverse researchers from across the disciplinary spectrum on projects that link the natural and social sciences in the areas of climate and/or water.
