Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Search

We seek to hire a scientist who will join a highly interdisciplinary program at UWM’s School of Freshwater Sciences and combine the strengths of freshwater sciences and atmospheric sciences at UWM to address the challenges of integrating climate and watershed science at scales relevant to local landscapes (urban and rural), regional hydrology (such as the Great Lakes), and ecosystem services. The successful candidate will be prepared to:

  • Develop a high-quality research portfolio employing modeling, environmental observations, and data synthesis techniques in climate and water science that involves independent and collaborative sponsored research, and obtain extramural funding for such programs from federal, state, and private sources.
  • Develop and teach climate and water science courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in Freshwater and/or Atmospheric Sciences.
  • Mentor students, including those from underrepresented backgrounds.
  • Work with community partners (government, sewerage districts, not-for-profits, community groups, educational groups, etc.) interested in mitigating and adapting to climate change on local and regional watershed scale environments.
  • Perform administrative duties, as part of Service duties commensurate with a tenure-track appointment in the School of Freshwater Sciences.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, freshwater science, oceanography, computer science, geography, or related field by time of appointment. For more information and to apply, please visit UW-Milwaukee Career Opportunities. Applications must be submitted by 13 November 2021 to receive full consideration.

Please contact the search committee chair, Prof. Jon Kahl, with any questions.
