Idaho State University Department of Geosciences has an opening for an Assistant Professor in Cyberinfrastructure. Job ad at this shortened URL: http://bit.ly/uAPjbR
or ISU's HR website: https://isujobs.net/applicants/jsp/shared/Welcome_css.jsp ; Posting # 2011191
Primary Purpose: The successful candidate must be able to develop and sustain a high quality, active, and multidisciplinary research program, mentor graduate and undergraduate student researchers, and maintain active service at the departmental, university and community levels. The position requires teaching at the undergraduate and/or graduate level with particular emphasis on courses in cyberinfrastructure for geosciences.
Key Responsibilities: The successful candidate will have demonstrated expertise in data-intensive computing for scientific exploration with a high potential for success with NSF and other federally-funded cyberinfrastructure and geoinformatics grants. Examples of research foci in the area of cyberinfrastructure for geosciences include, but are not limited to water/climate modeling, environmental time-series analysis, hydroinformatics, GIS and/or related areas with particular emphasis on the cyberinfrastructure research opportunities presented by NSF through, for example, EarthCube and similar programs.
Minimum Qualifications: PhD in Geosciences, Hydrology, Engineering, GIS, Computer Science or closely related discipline; demonstrated ability to teach graduate and undergraduate courses, and ability to develop an externally funded research program in cyberinfrastructure for geotechnologies (GIS, remote sensing), geosciences, water/climate modeling, environmental time-series analysis, and/or hydroinformatics.
Preferred Qualifications: Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated experience teaching and conducting original research and publishing results in the field of spatial cyberinfrastructure for geotechnologies. Expertise in one or more of the following areas is also viewed positively: use of geotechnologies software (e.g. GIS, remote sensing) for resolving complex problems of handling and analyzing massive and heterogeneous spatial datasets; development and deployment of distributed databases and analytical software tools; visualization using 3D immersive and related technologies; application of Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards and tools to geoscience problems. Demonstrated ability to conduct collaborative research and interest in and the ability to lead major cyberinfrastructure research proposals are also desired.
