The Department of Earth System Science (ESS) at the University of California, Irvine, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position focused on the effects of global environmental change on natural or managed terrestrial ecosystems. We are particularly interested in applicants who are working to quantify, understand and predict the impacts on land surface structure and function, including vegetation dynamics, hydrology or biogeochemistry. We welcome applications from researchers who are using a range of approaches, such as manipulations, in-situ or remotely-sensed observations, or process modeling. The successful applicant will have a strong research agenda, a commitment to excellence in teaching, and enthusiasm for joining a collegial, cross-disciplinary department.
