The Department of Land, Air & Water Resources in the College of
Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at the University of California,
Davis is recruiting an Assistant Professor of Cloud Physics and Climate
Change. This is an academic year (9-month), tenure track position that
includes the expectation of mission-oriented research and outreach
relevant to the California Agricultural Experiment Station.
We are seeking applicants that focus on the physics of clouds and its
connections to the climate system, using modeling, laboratory, and/or
field approaches. Examples of topics include cloud microphysical
processes, aerosol-cloud-radiation interactions, precipitation
efficiency, or the representation of cloud processes in climate/weather
models. The ideal candidate will link cloud processes with other
components of the Earth system, especially the hydrologic system. The
successful candidate will coordinate with existing departmental
colleagues who have expertise in large-scale and climate dynamics,
climate modeling, mesoscale modeling, hydrology, biomicrometeorology,
boundary-layer meteorology, Earth system modeling, and atmospheric
The appointee is expected to establish a competitively funded research
program that addresses critical issues in cloud physics and climate
change, and will be responsible for teaching undergraduate courses for
the Atmospheric Science and Environmental Science and Management majors.
Possibilities include general education courses in climate change (ATM
5) and severe weather (ATM 10), and upper division courses in cloud
physics (ATM 120), geophysical fluid dynamics (ATM 121a and 121b),
climate change (ATM 116), and radiative transfer (ATM 128). The
successful candidate will also teach a graduate course on topics such as
advanced dynamics (ATM 221), climate dynamics (ATM 241), or cloud
physics – climate interactions (which has not been offered on campus).
After a few years of building a class portfolio, we expect the appointee
to teach an average of 2.5 courses per year (i.e., every three
quarters), typically two undergraduate courses each year and a graduate
course in alternate years, in addition to occasionally running a seminar
series. Supervision of graduate students, undergraduate student
advising, curricular development, participation in outreach programs,
and university service are expected. Consistent with the mission of a
Land Grant university and in support of the goals of the California
Agricultural Experiment Station, research developed under the
appointee’s research program should include an applied component useful
to constituents in the public and/or private sectors.
This recruitment is conducted at the assistant rank. The resulting hire
will be at the assistant rank, regardless of the proposed appointee's
UC Davis supports Family-friendly recruitments. UC Davis covers travel
expenses for a second
person to accompany an invited faculty recruitment candidate who is a
mother (or single parent of either gender) of a breast or bottle-feeding
child less than two years of age.
UC Davis recognizes the necessity of supporting faculty with efforts to
integrate work, family and other work-life considerations. To recruit
and retain the best faculty, the campus sponsors a Work Life
Program that provides programs and services that support faculty as they
strive to honor their commitments to work, home and community.
The UC Davis Partner Opportunities Program (POP) is a service designed
to support departments and deans’ offices in the recruitment and
retention of outstanding faculty. Eligibility for POP services is
limited to full-time Academic Senate Ladder Rank faculty (including
Lecturers with Security of Employment (LSOE), Lecturers with Potential
Security of Employment (LPSOE) Senior Lecturer with Security of
Employment (SLPSOE)), and Cooperative Extension Specialists.
UC Davis is a smoke- and tobacco-free campus effective January 1, 2014.
Smoking, the use of smokeless tobacco products, and the use of
unregulated nicotine products (e-cigarettes) will be strictly prohibited
on any property owned or leased by UC Davis-- indoors and outdoors,
including parking lots and residential space.
