Should indefinite tenure be granted, the appointment will be on a 9-month basis, as are all COAS indefinite tenure agreements. This position is a climate modeler with expertise in understanding connections among components of the climate system on regional and global scales. Specific interests might include research on large-scale variability and associated regional/continental climate, or climate model downscaling. This position leads efforts to understand climate system variations, with emphasis on the physical processes and mechanisms that are associated with changes in regional climate, for example, by integrating climate model simulations on multiple scales with analyses of historical climate and/or paleoclimate data. Research performed by the incumbent contributes to expanding Oregon State University programs in climate variability and change, ecosystem response, and the carbon cycle. This individual collaborates within and across university divisions and with the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute on issues related to impacts of natural and anthropogenic climate change. The appointee is expected to develop and maintain a vigorous, externally funded research program, and design and teach courses specific to the field of climate science such as statistical data analysis and climate modeling. Other duties include advising and mentoring graduate students and participation in the college teaching program. Background Information: COAS is one of the world’s leading graduate research institutions for oceanographic and atmospheric sciences, with more than 200 faculty and staff members, approximately 100 graduate students, and a wide variety of assets including an excellent computing infrastructure, state-of-the-art analytical facilities and two research vessels. Responsibilities: 60% Scholarship: Conduct externally funded research. Publication of scholarly work in peer-reviewed, top journals. Contribute substantially to advancing the field of climate research. 30% Teaching: High-quality teaching of graduate courses in regional and global climate change topics. Occasional teaching of undergraduate courses on climate change impacts. 10% Service: Provide service to the college and/or university to sustain and promote the research and educational missions. This position is also expected to participate in service to their research discipline through journal and grant review processes. 60% of the assigned duties are expected to lead to scholarly outcomes including engaging in peer-reviewed scholarship, establishing extramurally funded research programs and training graduate students.
