Tenure-track professorship in the field of climate modelling offered at the UGTO (University of Guanajuato, central Mexico), closing July 25. Guanajuato is a very safe & friendly community and university town, see <http://www.astro.ugto.mx/~kps/GTOimages.html> for photographs. The astronomy department, which has a multinational faculty of 12 professors from 6 nations, is hosting a meteorologic service for central mexico. It runs a network of automatic weather stations and a forecast computer model, both managed by two engineers (see <www.ccaug.ugto.mx, and www.astro.ugto.mx>). With this tenure-track position in the field of climate modelling, and more positions to follow in future years, the University of Guanajuato (UGTO) wants to establish a research centre to investigate in detail climate change and its consequenses for mexico. The pronounced central mexican topography, which is acting as a barrier between the pacific and the atlantic weather systems, requires global models with high resolution asigned to Mexico - an interesting task still waiting to be done. In addition, some mild teaching load is expected in very basic physics courses for the undergraduate students of the science division in chemistry, math and biology, or in form of a specialised course in atmospheric science and computer modelling (in english, as choices for the graduate programmes of astrophyscis, chemistry and math), until in a few years a course programme for atmospheric sciences will be established. The suitable candidate will ideally have some time of post-doc research experience in the field of climate modelling, some teaching experience, and an appetite to found and foster a new research group. External funding from different federal sources (technology, ecology and science, offered by Conacyt), as well as local governmental funding is available for propsals in the area of climate research, to finance e.g. a parallel computing facility. Tenure is available already after 2 years, and the initial salary can be nearly doubled by additional, result-dependent components. The original job offer (in spanish) can be found on the web-page of the UGTO, <www.ugto.mx>, going to "profesores" and there to "convocatorias". The application may be in english (prefered) or spanish and should include the typical requirements: CV with publication list and information on past teaching experience, photocopy of the PhD certificate, a research plan for the next 2 years, 2 letters of recommendation, and contact details (telephone and email). Interviews can be held via telephone, in english.Deadline for applications is July 25, 2011. - More information is available from:
