FACULTY POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT (Condensed)

The Department of Land, Air and Water Resources, internationally recognized as a premier center of excellence in research, teaching, and extension, is seeking applications for a Specialist in Cooperative Extension (CE) to join the faculty at the Assistant rank in the field of Biometeorology. This is a full time, careertrack position. CE Specialists have many of the same career opportunities and rights and privileges as faculty in the professorial ranks but do not have classroom teaching responsibilities, freeing them to do extension education and applied research with partners throughout California. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct original applied research resulting in information that can be applied toward Biometeorology, and to develop an extension education and outreach program that extends information to various clientele (e.g., University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources [UCANR] academics and staff, public agencies, philanthropic foundations, citizens, agricultural and urban stakeholders, and community organizations) including under-represented groups.

Qualifications: Ph.D. degree in Biometeorology or other closely related discipline is required. The successful candidate must have a record that documents productivity in research as evidenced by publications in peerreviewed journals.

Appointment Date: This position is available on or soon after July 1, 2018.

Applications: Applications should be submitted on-line at Recruit UC Davis. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, publication list, a statement of research interests and goals, a summary or abstract of the Ph.D. dissertation, copies or links to recent relevant publications, statement of contributions to diversity, and 3 letters of reference. Additional inquiries should be directed to ktpawu@ucdavis.edu. The position will remain open until filled. To ensure consideration, applications should be received by July 24, 2017.
