Associate Professor, Complex Human and Natural Systems Modeling, University of Texas at Austin

The Vice President for Research at The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a tenured Associate Professor in the area of Complex Systems Modeling of Human Infrastructure and Natural Systems. The successful candidate will develop a high-quality research program that integrates models for urban and/or natural systems to provide information for decision-making. This research area is a key component of a new, campus-wide initiative, called Planet Texas 2050   which is addressing the challenges to Texas’ resiliency in the 21st century given the projected driving forces of population growth and climate change. This initiative will address processes and feedbacks across the breadth of natural resources in Texas (and elsewhere) and how future demands and global change will impact regions and municipalities. In natural systems, these processes and feedbacks include those within and between climate and hydrologic systems, ecosystems, and biogeochemical cycles. In human systems, the design and development of resilient cities will require research that effectively accounts for rapidly changing cities and the complex connections between various components of urban and social infrastructure. Projections for future change in complex urban infrastructure systems and their connections to and impact on changing natural systems will bear on the design of resilient cities, forensic analyses of disasters, and understanding challenges to public health in the 21st century. Texas is a sentinel region in terms of these driving forces and impacts, and integrated models developed here will have wide application beyond the state.

The successful candidate will have strong modeling and/or data analytics skills, as well as demonstrated ability to develop and apply models such as those described, integrate research across disciplines, and build interdisciplinary research teams. The academic home for this position will be in either the Department of Geological Sciences (DGS) or the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering (CAEE), with potential affiliations and collaborations with UT Austin’s Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences, the Texas Advanced Computing Center, the Center for Sustainable Development, the Environmental Science Institute, the Energy Institute and the Dell Medical School.

As part of the Jackson School of Geosciences,  DGS has over 50 faculty and a community of research staff with a broad range of specialties, as well as access to outstanding research facilities and support. The department has one of the largest combined graduate and undergraduate enrollments of any Earth science program in North America and is ranked #1 in Geology graduate programs. In the Cockrell School of Engineering,  CAEE has over 55 faculty and several research centers and related staff, as well as state-of-the-art research labs. The CAEE department is ranked #2 in graduate programs in Civil Engineering, and #4 at the undergraduate level.

Applicant Instructions: Applicants must have an earned PhD degree or equivalent. Interested and qualified individuals should submit materials in electronic form to https://apply.interfolio.com/56233. Requested application documents include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research, statement of teaching, statement outlining your contributions to diversity, and contact information for at least 3 references.

Opportunities for interdisciplinary research exist through collaborations with colleagues in WHOI’s other science departments, centers, and labs as well as with researchers in the broader Woods Hole scientific community.

Candidates hired at the Assistant Scientist or Associate Scientist level will receive an initial appointment for four years. WHOI’s Scientific Staff are expected to raise their salaries from grants and contracts. The Institution provides significant internal funding opportunities for developing innovative research projects, and provides salary support when no other funding is available.

WHOI is the largest private, non-profit oceanographic institution in the world, with staff and students numbering approximately 1,000. Its mission is to advance our understanding of the ocean and its interaction with the Earth system, and to communicate this understanding for the benefit of society. The Institution is located in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, a center of excellence in engineering and marine, biomedical, and environmental science. An additional 500 affiliates are associated with the scientific endeavors of the Institution, many of whom are foreign nationals from the international community.

The successful applicant will demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching hydrogeology through an understanding of the physics of heat, mass, and fluid transport in rocks and soils and build a vibrant, externally funded research program addressing topics such as groundwater usage and availability, contaminant storage, fate, and transport, aquifer storage and recovery, or groundwater-surface water interactions. The position will help maintain CEOAS as a key player within a high profile and extensive campus-wide framework of water-related studies, and position CEOAS for addressing critical issues related to anticipated hydrological changes at local to global levels. The critical importance of water science at OSU is recognized through strategic plans (see OSU’s Vision2030 document), and an upcoming philanthropic focus on water.

For academic-track positions, it is CEOAS policy to confer indefinite tenure when promoted to Associate Professor, with indefinite tenure granted on either a 9-month, 1.0 FTE or 12-month, 0.75 FTE appointment basis.
