Faculty Position in Environmental Sensor Networks

Established in 2006, the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE)  
is the focal point for earth and space science at Arizona State  
University, one of the largest and fastest growing institutions of  
higher learning in the United States. An essential part of the SESE  
mission is an effective integration of disciplines such as  
astrophysics, biogeochemistry, geology, geophysics, hydrology and  
engineering for scientific exploration.

Over the next two years, SESE will be hiring a large number of faculty  
– at a variety of ranks – in order to build its capacity for  
transdisciplinary research and education in earth and space science  
and engineering. (A full listing of current searches may be found at http://sese.asu.edu 
/opportunities.)

One priority for SESE is to welcome new faculty with interests in  
sensor networks and robotics. Specifically, we seek applicants who are  
interested in developing techniques for integrating large arrays of  
static and mobile sensors and robots to monitor physical, chemical,  
and biological processes that shape the evolution of Earth’s surface  
and near surface environments. Research interests could range from the  
development of control and distributed sensing algorithms to the field  
deployment of sensor networks and robots for environmental  
observations. A demonstrated track record in research, teaching and  
grantsmanship is preferred. Opportunities are available for joint  
appointments with other academic units within the College of Liberal  
Arts and Sciences and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.

Applications should include: 1) a cover letter that includes a  
description of the applicant’s research and teaching interests, 2) a  
current CV, and 3) the names, addresses and telephone numbers of three  
references. Inquiries and applications must be addressed to Kip  
Hodges, Director, School of Earth and Space Exploration, and submitted  
electronically to sesenewfac at asu.edu. Submissions in pdf format are  
preferred.

ASU is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer that actively  
seeks diversity among applicants and promotes a diverse workforce.
