TENURE-TRACK POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT

The Department of Geosciences at Texas Tech University (TTU) invites
applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Atmospheric Science
to begin in Fall 2017. The position will be filled at the Assistant
Professor level. A Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science or a closely related
field is required at the time of appointment. The successful candidate
will establish an innovative, externally-funded academic research
program, instruct graduate and undergraduate courses, and direct M.S.
and Ph.D. student research. Service duties include program-building, as
well as commitment to extra-curricular activities. Service to the
department, college, and university is expected. Applicants whose
research program can contribute to University strategic priorities in
areas such as climate and hydrology are especially encouraged to apply,
but consideration will be given to other tangential disciplines that
have exceptional promise of growth.

The Department web site <www.geosciences.ttu.edu> describes the
laboratories, facilities and current research programs. TTU has
assembled a unique array of capabilities for observation and simulation
of the atmosphere (e.g., the TTU High Performance Computing Center, two
mobile high-frequency (Ka-band) Doppler radars, 24 StickNet in situ
observation stations, the 98-station West Texas Mesonet, a 200-m tower
instrumented at 10 levels). A newly renovated electronics lab is
available to support the development and maintenance of field
instrumentation. The department also is well positioned for research
involving GIS and remote sensing. The interdisciplinary Climate Science
Center <http://www.depts.ttu.edu/csc/> includes research involving
education, climate modeling, and societal impacts of climate change.
Collaborations also are possible with the local NWS and USGS offices.

Applicants must first visit the TTU employment website at
<http://jobs.texastech.edu>. Once there, go to “Search Jobs”, search for
requisition number 8789BR, and provide the required information.
Afterwards, applicants must submit a letter of application, curriculum
vitae, a statement of teaching and research interests, names and contact
information (including e-mail address) of at least three professional
references. These documents must be uploaded to the employment website.
Inquiries regarding the position should be sent to <Chris.Weiss@ttu.edu>.

Review of applicants will begin 15 November and will continue until the
position is filled.

Texas Tech University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity

disabilities. Jeff Lee Professor and Chair Department of Geosciences
