Assistant Professor in Climate & Atmospheric Science

04.12.2018 - University of California, Merced, US

The Department of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of California, Merced, seeks applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Climate and Atmospheric Science. We welcome applications from scientists working in any area of climate and atmospheric science relevant to the health and sustainability of natural ecosystems or human societies. We are open to any scale of focus (e.g., local vs. global, short- vs. long-term, modern vs. historical vs. geological time), as well as to any scientific approach (measurements, experiments, modeling, or any combination).

Examples of relevant research include but are not limited to: regional to global climate modeling and forecasting; examining fluxes of gases or particles to/from the atmospheric boundary layer; studying the production, fate, and transport of atmospheric pollutants and related precursors (including those relevant for human health); research into fundamental scientific concepts underlying accurate weather forecasts and climate predictions (including extreme weather events, and the form, timing, and quantity of precipitation delivered to watersheds); or modeling and analysis of large-scale atmospheric phenomena and how they change over a variety of time scales (e.g., changes in ENSO dynamics; changes in climactic patterns underlying droughts, hurricanes, and other extreme weather events; paleoclimate studies).

Review of applications will begin on 1/1/19, but the recruitment will be opened until filled, with anticipated hire date of 7/1/19.
