The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) at Cornell University invites applications for an Assistant Professor in the area of extreme weather under climate change. The successful candidate will develop a high quality research program investigating the multi-scale processes linking climate to extreme weather phenomena, such as thunderstorms, tornadoes, tropical and extra-tropical cyclones, flooding, and droughts, and their impacts. The incumbent could take an Earth system approach to the subject, emphasizing the interactions of atmospheric, oceanic and land-surface processes in responding to forcing from the climate system, including future climate change scenarios. The incumbent will also 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. The responsibilities of the position will be 50% research and 50% teaching.
A Ph.D. in atmospheric science, Earth system science, or a related science or engineering discipline is required.
