Faculty Position in Atmospheric/Climate Dynamics
Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University

 

The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) at Cornell University invites applications for an Assistant Professor in the subject of large-scale atmospheric or climate dynamics. The successful candidate will develop a high quality research program investigating atmospheric systems and processes on large space and time scales, namely from regional to continental spatial scales and on seasonal to inter-annual time scales. Research areas could include but not be limited to climate-weather or ocean-atmosphere interactions. Those with research interests that involve extraterrestrial atmospheres or physical oceanography are also encouraged to apply. The position is one of what is expected to be a series of new appointments as part of a commitment to a major faculty renewal in EAS.

The selected candidate will be a committed educator, enthusiastically teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, advising undergraduate and graduate students, and supervising students at all levels in research. The ideal candidate will be able to interact in teaching and research with colleagues having similar interests at Cornell University, particularly in the Colleges of Engineering and of Agriculture and Life Sciences, in which the Department of EAS is jointly located.

This is a nine-month, tenure-track, professorial position. The responsibilities of the position will be 50% research and 50% teaching. A Ph.D. in atmospheric science or a related science or engineering discipline is required.
