Faculty Positions in Climate Adaptation

The University of California at Davis seeks application for five faculty positions in complementary areas of Climate Adaptation: Civil Infrastructure, Health, Weather Extremes, Plant Genomics, and Urban-Rural Interfaces spanning the Colleges of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and Engineering, and the Schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. These positions will form a team with current faculty to tackle the critical climate adaptation challenges of the next few decades and educate future researchers and practitioners in climate adaptation. UC Davis is world renowned ranking nationwide 9th among public research universities and 38th among public and private research universities according to U.S. News and World Report in 2016.

Three of the positions (Health, Weather Extremes and Plant Genomics) will be at the assistant professor level, while the fourth (Civil Infrastructure) will be any rank and the fifth (Urban-Rural Interfaces) will be determined at a later date.
