Assistant Professor Position: Global Biogeochemistry, University of California, Santa Cruz

The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in biogeochemistry.  We are especially interested in applicants who integrate and apply computer modeling and/or field and laboratory observations to investigate the interactions of biogeochemical systems/processes across or at the interface of marine and terrestrial environments on regional to global scales, and on human to geologic time scales.

The candidate will be expected to interact with a diverse community of Earth, Atmospheric, and Ocean scientists, develop an externally funded, leading edge research program, advise graduate students, and maintain a strong commitment to teaching.  This position will complement existing programs in geochemistry, climate dynamics, paleobiology, paleoceanography, hydrology, and surface processes, as well as in chemical, biological, and physical oceanography. This is part of a cluster hire and will contribute to a new undergraduate degree program in Environmental Science and our growing interdisciplinary research focus on coastal science and policy. The successful candidate must be able to
work with students, faculty and staff from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community.
