The Department of Environmental Science and Policy at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science is embarking on a rebuilding phase that seeks to fill 2 additional tenure-track faculty positions in environmental science and policy – one in interdisciplinary environmental social sciences and the second in data sciences with applications to environmental science and policy and coupled human–natural systems (separate link for data sciences position noted below). Appointments will be made at the assistant or associate professor level, with the possibility of full-professor appointments for exceptional candidates.
The Department’s mission is solutions-oriented, policy-relevant research and scholarship, training the next generations of environmental managers, practitioners, and research scientists. Our faculty are leading scholars in the applied environmental social sciences dedicated to addressing pressing ocean, coastal, and climate challenges central to long-term sustainability and resilience. We are the hub at the Rosenstiel School for connecting the natural sciences with society and policy. Our work is supported by major university-wide interdisciplinary initiatives, such as the Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy and the University Laboratory for Integrative Knowledge (U-LINK).
We seek rising and established leaders in interdisciplinary environmental social sciences, broadly defined. The first position can pertain to any area of interdisciplinary environmental social science. We seek candidates who add to the long-standing goal of increasing diversity across Rosenstiel School departments.
Successful candidates may draw from diverse backgrounds, including but not limited to environmental governance and justice, law, data science, geography, planning, public health, anthropology, or the behavioral, decision, and economic sciences. Areas of focus for both positions may include human-environment interactions related to coasts, oceans, and land, with an emphasis on coastal zone management, water management, climate change risks and responses, sustainable development, species conservation, equity and justice, and/or natural resource management.
Applicants must have a J.D. or Ph.D. in Environmental Science or related field by the expected start date of August 2023. Candidates must demonstrate strong interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary research productivity and research partnerships, the potential to secure extramural funding, and commitment to teaching and mentorship at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The second position is focused on data science and computing. We seek candidates with a proven record of implementing complex spatial data analysis, statistical learning techniques, machine learning, remote sensing, or other big data tools.
