New Faculty Position: Forests in the Earth System

Announcing a new faculty position in Forests in the Earth System with the University of Arizona's Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research and the Institute of the Environment
The University of Arizona seeks to fill a faculty position in areas related to forests in the Earth System. We seek a quantitative scientist whose research addresses the interactions of climate, wildfire, forest growth and carbon dynamics, or a subset of these topics. The successful candidate will bring strong modeling and spatiotemporal analysis skills to complement existing strengths at UA in fire sciences, dendrochronology, paleoclimatology, the carbon cycle, remote sensing and tree and forest growth. We are especially interested in individuals whose research utilizes dendrochronology in novel and effective combination with other tools and methods to address basic or applied questions on these topics, particularly the scaling of understanding from landscape to global spatial scales.
