Dear CAST colleagues,

Cornell University is conducting a search in BEE for someone working on systems engineering (link to position announcement: to fill an Assistant Professor position. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing a nationally recognized research program in one or more areas of complex systems engineering such as, but not limited to:

• Developing quantitative, predictive and computational modeling of food-water-energy systems that increase our decision support capability for critical systems;
• Multi-disciplinary and multi-scale (with emphasis on a larger scale) representations of food-water-energy systems with safety and/or security in mind
• Using data, network and computing resources for autonomous reasoning and for synergizing robots and humans to improve efficiency, productivity, and sustainability;
• Real-time, high-resolution forecasting of plant development, yield and pests, energy/water expenditure, and agricultural sustainability using a mixture of structural models, AI, spatial statistics and machine learning; 
• Using data and mathematical models for analysis of the ecosystem services of interconnected food, water and/or energy systems in affecting human well-being;
• Exploiting new data streams to advance biological system adaptation, resilience, stress mitigation and pest resistance. 

Please  encourage any appropriate candidates to apply.

Best regards,
