Dear colleagues and friends:

I would like to bring to your attention that the University of Maryland is 
searching for a Professor in Data Assimilation. Although the advertisement 
(attached and copied below) indicates the search is for an Assistant Professor 
position, Associate and Full Professor applications will be also fully 
considered for outstanding candidates.

I would like to request from you two things:
a) Consider applying yourself.
b) Bring this announcement to the attention of students or colleagues that may 
be appropriate candidates.

If you could also suggest names of outstanding data assimilation scientists 
that you think should be invited to apply, please let our search committee know.

Please note that applications should be made directly online as indicated below.

Thank you very much for your help in finding an outstanding replacement for 
Prof. Takemasa Miyoshi, who was recently recruited by RIKEN, in Japan, for a 
very important senior Team Leader position. Any advice on promising candidates 
(including yourself) would be very gratefully considered by the Search 

With best wishes,

collaboration between the University and nearby national laboratories 
including: the NOAA National Weather Service and its National Centers for 
Environmental Prediction, the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and
