The University of Arizona announces coordinated hiring of five tenure-track or tenured faculty positions in Earth system remote sensing to establish the Earth Dynamics Observatory (EDO) to respond to global challenges in Earth and environmental science, planetary science, and hazards and resource assessment.
EDO will combine unique mission operations and planetary science capabilities of the internationally recognized Lunar and Planetary Lab with remote sensing research in leading natural science programs includingGeosciences, Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences, the School of Natural and Resources and the Environment, and the Institute of the Environment, with instrument development and calibration through UA’s renownedColleges of Science, Optical Sciences, and Engineering. EDO faculty will contribute to interdisciplinary research and educational programs oriented around remote sensing and Earth and planetary change, with the goal of developing instruments, deploying missions, and leading new research in applications of remote sensing.
We welcome applications for the first five EDO positions focused in five areas. For all positions, scientists may seek appointments in one or several Departments and Colleges within the University, depending on the research areas and interests of the scientist and the promotion of mission- and science-oriented objectives of EDO.
