Job Description

Assistant/Associate/Professor of Geography

WATER CLUSTER - Watershed Hydrology

(Tenure-Track Open Rank - Commensurate with Experience)


The University of Cincinnati is pleased to announce four tenure-track faculty positions in the areas of environmental biology, environmental chemistry, urban water infrastructure and watershed modeling.

  These positions are part of a Water Cluster Initiative that will hire six new tenure-track faculty over the next two years to strengthen interdisciplinary programs in water research, education and outreach.  The Water Cluster hires represent a joint initiative between the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS), McMicken College of Arts & Sciences (A&S), and the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP).

Building on our research and innovation strengths, UC's Cluster Hiring Initiative supports existing and emerging partnerships within and between colleges, divisions and areas. In partnership with the Vice President of Research, the Provost’s cluster hiring investments harness the power of faculty members focused on solving the world’s biggest challenges through leading-edge research and interdisciplinary collaborations that erase boundaries and embrace creative, bold ideas.

Designed to attract top-quality faculty from around the world, UC’s Clusters represent the university’s commitment to investing in faculty and interdisciplinary problem-solving. UC’s Water Cluster establishes our region as a national and global leader in water research, education and outreach centered on integrated water resources management within and across natural and engineered systems. By bringing water planning and management experts together, the Water Cluster provides a supportive platform for new approaches to environmental sustainability.

The job description for this specific position follows; please see the Provost’s website http://www.uc.edu/provost/clusters for more information about the Cluster Hiring initiative and visit https://jobs.uc.edu for a listing of all the open positions.

Watershed Hydrology

We seek an expert to develop and advance science-based watershed and water quality models and decision support tools that simulate the impacts of land use, climate, land-atmosphere interactions and anthropogenic influences on surface runoff, on groundwater resources and on water quality in both natural and engineered environments at a watershed scale. Preference will be given to candidates with expertise and accomplishments in one or more of the following areas: hydrologic modeling of runoff, fate and transport of water quality parameters (nutrients, sediments, chemical pollutants, and bacteria); the impacts of land use, urbanization and climate change on stream and lake water quality and algal blooms; design and evaluation of best watershed management practices for controlling legacy and emerging water quality issues; and mitigating urban and agricultural non-point source pollutions. We desire a candidate with an integrated understanding of the interactions between climate, water, and ecosystems, and with technical skills and experience in GIS, spatial statistics, and computer simulation. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in geography/geology/hydrology/environmental engineering or a closely related field with an expected home department of Geography or Environmental Engineering, and a potential joint appointment in the second department or in others, including Geology (A&S), commensurate with the candidates background and expertise.  (link)

Responsibilities:  The successful candidate will be expected to develop and maintain an internationally-recognized externally-funded research program; provide excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching and education; and contribute to scholarly activities performed within academic communities across the university.  The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute in meaningful ways to interdisciplinary research and educational activities that complement and are synergistic within the Water Cluster.

Job Requirements

Qualifications:   A Ph.D. degree in the specified or closely related discipline is required.  Candidates will be evaluated based on their alignment within the Water Cluster and on their academic credentials, their record of research, teaching and scholarly activities and potential for success in developing a funded research program and making contributions in research, teaching and service to the field.    

Appointment:  The position is anticipated to be filled at the rank of assistant or associate professor, as above.  However, exceptional associate and full professor candidates will be considered based upon credentials. 

Successful candidates will have a primary appointment in one of six departments in CEAS, A&S, and DAAP with potential secondary appointments in other appropriate programs within and outside these departments.  The primary Departments include:

  • College of Engineering and Applied Science
    • Department of Biomedical, Chemical, and Environmental Engineering
    • Department of Civil and Architectural Engr and Construction Management
  • McMicken College of Arts & Sciences
    • Department of Biological Sciences
    • Department of Geography
    • Department of Geology
  • College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning
    • School of Planning

Proposed Start Date:  Aug 15, 2016 or as negotiated

To Apply:  For full consideration, please submit a cover letter, a curriculum vita that includes a list of recent publications; a list of four references with address, email and phone contact information; and a detailed research (3 page maximum) and educational (2 page maximum) plan to the appropriate job listing.  For full consideration, all application material must be submitted electronically to the University of Cincinnati’s on-line application system at https://jobs.uc.edu by October 15, 2015 to the position number associated with the specific opening shown above.  Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
