Job Announcement: Assistant Visiting Professor / Geospatial Analytics, Climate Change Adaptation, and Coastal Processes

Location: Corvallis, Oregon

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University (OSU) located in Corvallis, Oregon, invites applications for a full-time 1.00 FTE 9-month, or part-time 0.75 FTE 12-month, visiting Assistant Professor with a focus on Geospatial Analytics, Climate Change Adaptation, and Coastal Processes.


The position is anticipated to begin in January 2016 and end June 2017.

This Visiting Assistant Professor in the Geography program unites expertise in geospatial analysis, physical aspects of climate systems, and a specialization in social science approaches to adaptation, vulnerability, and planning for climate change and coastal processes. Climate change is a salient security concern, with coastal areas of the world particularly vulnerable due to rising sea levels, increasingly powerful storms, and growing populations within the sea's reach. Geospatial Analytics and Planning is the development and use of large geospatial/temporal datasets to help inform effective decision-making, particularly in regard to adaptability to environmental change. This individual will conduct education, outreach, and research to characterize vulnerability and adaptive capacity to climate change as related to security and coastal processes, and specifically to assess vulnerability with respect to infrastructure, economic sectors, geographic areas, population groups, and ecosystems.

This teaching and research/outreach-related appointment has an expectation for scholarly accomplishments appropriate to the position focus and responsibilities. This individual will teach undergraduate courses in geospatial science, courses serving the Baccalaureate Core, and graduate courses in the Geography program of the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences. Research will be interdisciplinary and will incorporate geospatial science approaches to biophysical, ecological, and marine system science research and outreach to address climate change and related critical societal issues.
