[Met-jobs] Two assistant professor openings in atmospheric science at LDEO/Columbia

please find attached ads for two open positions here at Lamont/Columbia. Both 
are completely
open searches in atmospheric science at the junior level. One is a regular 
tenure-track faculty
position while the other is a research faculty position with no teaching 
obligation (but requiring
that a larger fraction of salary be supported by sponsored projects). Please 
feel free to forward,
and bring this to the attention of any outstanding candidates. 

I am delighted to call your attention to two separate assistant professor 
searches in atmospheric science at LDEO/Columbia:

1) Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences 
(typical academic tenure track; this is the department I am in at Lamont and 
Columbia), for which we are looking within atmospheric science, broadly defined.

2) Lamont Assistant Research Professor within the Division of Ocean Climate 
Physics at Lamont (within which my group is housed). In this case, the search 
is for an atmospheric scientist conducting research of relevance to climate.  
This is a soft money position on the research professor track.

Note that review of applications
will begin on Dec. 19 (one week from now) for both positions.
