Open Rank Faculty Position in the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic
and Space Sciences at the University of Michigan.

The Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences (AOSS) in the
College of Engineering at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor
invites applications for an open rank, tenure or tenure-track faculty
position. We welcome applicants who are working in the intersections
between the physically based understandings, monitoring, or predictions
of global or regional climate changes and the implications of such
changes for water, energy, or other socio-economic policies. Applicants
working on physical, chemical, or biogeochemical aspects of these issues
are all encouraged to apply. Relevant areas are, but not limited to, (1)
understanding, quantifying, and reducing parametric and structural
uncertainties in earth system modeling for improving climate
projections, (2) understanding extreme weather events or other
low-probability-high-impact events in the context of future climate
change and improving the assessment of their social-economic impacts,
(3) climate variability and its impact on regional water and energy
policies, (4) climate monitoring for climate policy needs and policy
