Two Faculty Positions in Extreme Weather and Regional Climate Change

The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS;
<http://www.somas.stonybrook.edu/>) at Stony Brook University invites
applications for two tenure track positions in Atmospheric Science to
begin as early as Fall 2014. We welcome applicants focusing on extreme
weather and regional climate change. In particular, applicants should
contribute towards improving the physical understanding of extreme
weather (e.g., tropical cyclones, severe convection, flooding), novel
ways to do regional climate downscaling for extreme weather, or the
application of remote sensing to address these issues. Stony Brook has
active research efforts to improve understanding and prediction of
coastal storms, convective systems, storm surge, seasonal variability,
and climate. Successful candidates are expected to develop an
independent externally funded research program, to teach and direct
research at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and participate
in School and University service. All candidates must have a Ph.D. in a
relevant field, and have demonstrated excellence in research and a
strong commitment to teaching. The positions will be filled at the
Assistant Professor level.

Successful candidates will join a SoMAS faculty internationally known
for their leadership in research in the atmospheric sciences and all the
major disciplines of oceanography. The school has more than 500
undergraduate and graduate students and about 50 faculty and 40 staff
working together to better understand how our marine, terrestrial, and
atmospheric environments function and are related to one another,
providing numerous opportunities for collaborative and
inter-disciplinary research. SoMAS has collaborations with the
Atmospheric Sciences Division at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL;
<http://www.bnl.gov/envsci/>), located nearby, and also has extensive
interactions with the New York City National Weather Service office
located at BNL (<http://www.erh.noaa.gov/okx/tour/index.html>) on extreme
weather (<http://dendrite.somas.stonybrook.edu/CSTAR/>).

Candidates should apply through Campus Job Opportunities
(<http://www.stonybrook.edu/cjo/>), reference #F-8297-13-11, and submit
a Stony Brook University state faculty employment application (available
from the position announcement at the aforementioned jobs site), CV, a
letter of introduction that conveys the candidate's teaching philosophy
and proposed research plans, and names and contact information of three
references (electronic submission in one PDF document is strongly
preferred).

Alternatively, the above-listed materials may be mailed to:
Paulette Gerber, HR Assistant
(ref: Faculty Positions in Atmospheric Science #F-8297-13-11)
School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences
145 Endeavour Hall
Stony Brook University
Stony Brook, NY 11794-5000.

Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2014 and will continue
until the positions are filled.
