Position in Hydrogeology at UW-Madison

Anders Carlson
To whom it may concern, I would like to bring to your attention this faculty opening in the Dept. of Geoscience at UW-Madison.

Faculty Position in Hydrogeology – University of Wisconsin – Madison
The Department of Geoscience invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor, beginning August 2011. We seek a broad range of outstanding candidates in hydrogeology with specialties related to physical, chemical and biological processes affecting subsurface flow and transport in porous and fractured geologic media. Research approaches should encompass some combination of field, laboratory, and modeling. Specific areas of interest include (but are not limited to) evaluation, development and sustainable management of water resources; transport, fate and remediation of contaminants; interactions between groundwater and surface water, seawater, snow or ice; groundwater and geologic processes; groundwater and energy resources; groundwater and climate change; and paleohydrogeology.

The evaluation of candidates will focus primarily on their potential for innovative scientific research and teaching. The successful candidate will be expected to mentor and advise graduate students, and maintain an externally funded, internationally visible research program. Potential collaborative interactions exist within the department (see http://geoscience.wisc.edu/geoscience/), with other departments and programs on campus (Geological Eng., Civil and Environmental Eng., Geography, Soil Science, Water Resources Management, Environment and Resources, Environmental Chemistry and Technology, Limnology and Marine Science, Center for Climatic Research, Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment, UW Energy Institute), with the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey, and with state and federal agency researchers in the Madison area (USGS, WI Dept. of Natural Resources, USDA). Teaching responsibilities may include introductory geoscience courses for undergraduates as well as upper level undergraduate and graduate level courses related to the candidate’s specialty. A Ph.D. in geoscience, hydrologic science or a related field is required by the start of the appointment. Applicants should submit a vita, statements of research and teaching interests, and names and contact information of three or more references by email to [hidden email], or by mail to Jean M. Bahr, Hydrogeology Search Committee Chair, Department of Geoscience, University of Wisconsin – Madison, 1215 W. Dayton St., Madison WI 53706. (608)262-5513.

To ensure full consideration, applications must be received by November 15, 2010. Unless confidentiality is requested in writing, information regarding applicants and nominees must be released upon request. Finalists cannot be guaranteed confidentiality. A criminal background check may be required prior to employment. The University of Wisconsin-Madison is an equal-opportunity/affirmative action employer and encourages applications from women and minorities.
