Assistant Professor position –Watershed Science/Soil Physics at University of Florida

Assistant Professor of Watershed Science/Soil Physics in the Soil and Water Sciences Department University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) Gainesville, Florida.

This is a 12-month tenure-accruing position that will be 60% teaching (College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, CALS), 40% research (Florida Agricultural Experiment Station) and 0% extension (Florida Cooperative Extension Service), available in the Soil and Water Sciences Department (SWSD), Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, at the University of Florida. This assignment may change in accordance with the needs of the unit.

The incumbent is expected to teach four courses annually, in support of the teaching curriculum in the Department. Available courses include (1) Sustainable Agricultural and Urban Land management; (2) Urban Soil and Water Systems; (3) Land and Life – A general education course; and (4) The Science of Water- A new course to be developed at 3000 level. The successful candidate will engage in scholarly activities related to instruction, including teaching undergraduate and/or graduate courses, advising and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students, participating in curriculum revision and enhancement, and seeking funding for the teaching program. In addition, the incumbent is expected to contribute to the scholarship of teaching, develop new learning tools and methods, and engage in professional development activities related to teaching and advising. Faculty members are encouraged to support and participate in the CALS Honors Program, distance education, and international educational activities.

The research component of this position will focus on watershed-scale management of soil and water resources in the critical zone. This program area integrates theoretical and applied approaches to explore the complex physical, chemical, and biological processes associated with coupled hydrologic and biogeochemical cycles, and interactions between the soil zone, the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere. Specific applications and methodological approaches of interest include 1) interfaces between natural and managed (e.g., agricultural and urban) landscapes, 2) emphasis on vadose zone hydrology and/or solute transport at a range of spatial and temporal scales, 3) integration of landscape-scale remote sensing data with quantitative modeling. Research applications may be in a range of ecosystems as related to plant productivity,
