Assistant or Associate Professor – Radiative Transfer / Remote Sensing

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) at Oregon
State University invites applications for a full-time (1.0 FTE),
12-month, tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor with a focus on
radiative transfer and/or remote sensing.

We seek a new faculty member who will develop and maintain a vigorous,
externally funded research program in remote sensing and/or modeling of
processes directly linked to the Earth’s radiative energy budget.  This
position is motivated by the core importance of radiative transfer in
the study of atmospheric processes and climate.  Specific areas of
research could include but are not restricted to: (1) Remote sensing of
the atmosphere and surface fluxes;  (2) Examining the radiative effects
of aerosols and clouds on climate; (3) Designing and implementing remote
sensing algorithms and methods; and (4) Developing parameterizations for
clouds and radiative transfer in atmospheric models.  The successful
candidate will complement existing CEOAS research programs in
atmosphere-ocean interaction, climate variability and change, and
analysis of satellite and in situ observations. The successful candidate
will also participate in the CEOAS undergraduate and graduate teaching
program and may contribute to teaching courses in radiative transfer,
remote sensing techniques, climate dynamics, and atmospheric physics.
Advising and mentoring graduate students and/or post-doctoral scholars
is also expected from the candidate.

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences is an
internationally recognized leader in the study of the Earth as an
integrated system. It operates numerous state-of-the art laboratories
and two oceanographic research vessels, the 177-foot ocean-going Oceanus
and the 54-foot coastal research vessel, Elakha. The College has an
annual budget of more than $50 million, with support coming from the
National Science Foundation, National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, National Aeronautics and Space Administration and other
federal agencies. It has more than 100 faculty, 200 graduate students
and 600 undergraduate students. Graduate programs include Master's and
PhD degrees in Ocean, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences; Geology; and
Geography and a Master's degree in Marine Resource Management. The
college has undergraduate programs in Earth Sciences and Environmental
Sciences, with several minors and certificate programs.

OSU has an institution-wide commitment to diversity, multiculturalism,
and community. We actively engage in recruiting and retaining a diverse
workforce and student body that includes members of historically
underrepresented groups. We strive to build and sustain a welcoming and

appointment will be on a 9-month basis, as are all CEOAS indefinite
tenure agreements.

The OSU benefit package includes several options for health/dental/life
insurance, retirement, as well as a program for reduced tuition for
qualified dependent.

72.5% Research/Scholarship: Establish and maintain an externally funded
program of scholarly research in the area of emphasis. Work towards
distinction in research as evidenced by national and international
recognition through significant contributions to radiative transfer,
climate, or remote sensing. Publish scholarly work in peer-reviewed,
top-ranked journals, conference proceedings and books appropriate for
the areas of interest. Disseminate research results by participation at
national and international professional conferences and symposia.

20% Teaching and Advising: Teach high quality graduate or undergraduate
courses in field of expertise. Mentor and advise undergraduates,
graduate students, and/or post-doctoral scholars.

7.5% Service: Provide service to the college and/or university to
sustain and promote the research and educational missions. This position
is also expected to participate in service to their research discipline
through committee memberships, reviews, and research planning/leadership

Minimum/Required Qualifications:

•       Ph.D. in atmospheric science, oceanography, or a closely related field
by the start of employment.
•       A strong scholarly potential demonstrated by a record of peer-reviewed
publications and a clearly defined research agenda commensurate with
academic rank.
•       Demonstrated ability or significant potential for establishing a
research program supported by extramural funding.
•       Demonstrated ability or significant potential for teaching excellence
and commitment to student success in the graduate and undergraduate
programs of College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences.
