— Two Faculty Positions in Climate/Weather Impacts and Risk Assessments —

The Department of Atmospheric Sciences within the School of Earth, Society, and 
Environment at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign invites 
applications for two full-time tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in the 
areas of extreme weather events, climate change impacts, and/or risk analysis 
and assessment. One position is at the Associate or Full Professor level, while 
the other is at the Assistant Professor (tenure-track) level. These positions 
are both nine-month academic appointments with a target start date of August 
16, 2014.

We are particularly interested in applicants whose research and teaching 
strengths include, but are not limited to, studies of climate change and 
extreme weather events, such as catastrophic storms, heat waves, droughts, and 
other hazardous phenomena using remote sensing techniques, numerical modeling 
and/or data analysis, risks and impact assessment associated with hazardous 
events, and management and strategic planning for weather and climate-related 
extreme events. Candidates who specialize in inter-disciplinary research areas 
with applications to the energy, commodities, agricultural, insurance, 
transportation, and/or natural resources sectors are encouraged to apply.  We 
encourage applicants with exceptional strengths in other related research areas.

Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in atmospheric, environmental or 
earth science, or a related field.  The successful candidates will be expected 
to: (i) establish and maintain an externally funded and internationally 
recognized quality research program, (ii) participate in the department’s 
teaching mission by mentoring graduate and undergraduate students and 
developing a successful teaching program, and (iii) collaborate effectively 
with other faculty. For a tenured appointment at the Associate or Full 
Professor level, the applicant must also show demonstrated excellence in 
research, service, and teaching at either or both the graduate and 
undergraduate levels, commensurate with tenure guidelines at the University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  
The members of the Atmospheric Sciences department work in a broad range of 
research areas. Opportunities are available for collaborations with departments 
across the university, with linkages already existing with the Department of 
Geology and the Department of Geography and Geographic Information Science, 
both within the School of Earth, Society, and Environment, the School of 
Integrative Biology, the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental 
Sciences, the Prairie Research Institute, the National Center for 
Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), the Department of Electrical and Computer 
Engineering, the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and many 
others. More information about the department can be found at, and about the School of Earth, Society and Environment 

A competitive salary, commensurate with position, qualifications and 
experience, and an excellent benefits package will be offered. To ensure full 
consideration, applications must be submitted online by December 15, 2013. 
Create your U of I application(s) through and upload your 
application materials which should include: cover letter, vita, list of 
publications, record of research funding, teaching record, description of 
research and teaching interests, and names and email addresses of at least 3 
references. Please state in your cover letter if you are applying for a junior 
or senior level position.  Applicants may be interviewed before the closing 
date; however, no hiring decision will be made until after that date.
