Cluster Hire: Spatial Analysis Center Director
University of California, Riverside

The University of California at Riverside (UCR) is embarking on a major 
new hiring initiative that will add 300 tenure-track positions in 33 
cross-disciplinary areas selected through a peer- reviewed competition 

Over the next three years, we will hire multiple faculty members in each 
area and invest in research infrastructure to support their work. This 
initiative will build critical mass in vital and emerging fields of 
scholarship, foster truly cross- disciplinary work and further diversify 
the faculty at one of America’s most diverse research universities. We 
encourage applications from scholars committed to excellence and seeking 
to help redefine the research university for the next generation.

We seek a Founding Director, at the Associate or Full Professor rank, 
for a new Spatial Analysis Center at University of California Riverside 
(UCR). The Director will provide vision and leadership for coordinated 
efforts with center faculty spanning engineering, science, and 
humanities, policy, and education colleges.

While the expertise of the center Director may emphasize applications in 
spatial science from any discipline or the management of spatial 
information, experience leading interdisciplinary research teams is 
valued. A Ph.D. and a record of excellence and leadership in spatial 
research is required. Through the creation of the Spatial Analysis 
Center we will bring together a critical mass of researchers at UCR who 
will enable coordinated advances in how dynamic spatial databases are 
built, how people interact with spatial data of immense complexity, and 
how new spatial analysis systems are used for understanding dynamics and 
feedbacks in the built and natural environment. Additional new faculty 
hired following the Director will join an existing research community 
that is developing cutting-edge spatial technologies and applying these 
tools to university-wide interdisciplinary challenges in fields spanning 
global climate and biodiversity, autonomous vehicles, cultural heritage, 
demographic changes, and big-data. The new center is part of a 
substantial recent investment by UCR in high performance computing and 
Data Science, which provides an exciting environment for advancing 
spatial analysis throughout the university. As part of a university-wide 
center, the Director will have an appropriate academic departmental home 
but the center will report to the Vice Chancellor for Research.

Depending upon the department of appointment, the position may include 
an appointment in the Agricultural Experiment Station, which includes 
the responsibility to conduct research and outreach relevant to the 
mission of the California Agricultural Experiment Station 

Applications must include a curriculum vitae, cover letter, statements 
of research and teaching interests, a leadership statement for the 
center, statement of contributions to diversity, and full contact 
information for three to five references. All application materials must 
be submitted through AP Recruit at: 
https://aprecruit.ucr.edu/apply/JPF00526 . Review of applications will 
begin March 15, 2016 and will continue until the position is filled with 
an anticipated start date of June 30, 2016. Salary is commensurate with 
education and experience. For more information about the position, 
contact Darrel Jenerette (darrel.jenerette at ucr.edu), Search Chair, 
Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, University of California Riverside.

2-3 years, each of which includes substantial peer input.
