Assistant Professor of Earth Surface Processes
The Department of Geography at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is recruiting a tenure-track Assistant Professor with research interests in earth surface processes, including geomorphology, fluvial processes, hydrology, eco-hydrology, and watershed modeling. The successful applicant will be expected to develop and maintain a vibrant research program in earth system geography, advise students in the department’s graduate programs, and contribute to the undergraduate and graduate curricula. The faculty member will be expected to develop a high-enrollment undergraduate course and contribute to our graduate and professional programs through teaching of an upper-level quantitative skills course in spatial analysis, remote sensing, or process-based modeling. We welcome candidates who can contribute to an inclusive environment, bring new perspectives on mentoring and educating students from diverse backgrounds, implement novel approaches to research, and who value collegiality and collaboration. The Department of Geography is an interdisciplinary and collaborative community of scholars engaged with the humanities, social sciences, data sciences, natural, and physical sciences.
