The Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering in the 
College of Engineering at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor 
invites applications for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position. 
Applicants at all ranks will be considered. We welcome applicants 
working on tropical meteorology, extreme weather, data assimilation and 
the weather-climate continuum, as well as applicants working at the 
interface between engineering and science applications. Applicants whose 
research emphasizes instrumentation, field observations, large-scale 
computing or big data analysis are all welcomed to apply. Exceptional 
applicants in other areas of the atmospheric sciences will also be 

The successful candidate is expected to (1) develop a widely recognized 
and externally funded research program, (2) supervise graduate students 
in research and (3) participate in the teaching mission of the 
Department and the College at both the graduate and undergraduate 
levels. Interest in developing collaborative relationships in research 
and teaching with other departments and colleges in the University is 
strongly encouraged. A PhD in a subject related to climate sciences or 
other relevant disciplines in science or engineering is required. 
Applications should include a cover letter, CV, research and teaching 
statements, and a list of at least four references. For full 
consideration, applications in a single PDF file should be*received 
before December 8th, 2016.*

Applications and questions concerning this position should be directed 
toclaspsearch at umich.edu <mailto:claspsearch at umich.edu>or the search 
committee chair Prof. Xianglei Huang (xianglei at umich.edu 
<mailto:xianglei at umich.edu>).

Formerly known as the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Space 
Sciences, the department changed to the current name in 2015 in order to 
better communicate the broad scope and depth of research, teaching and 
service in the department and to emphasize its connection to the College 
of Engineering. The department currently consists of 27 tenured or 
tenure-track faculty and 125 graduate students with annual research 
expenditures of $52.2 million in 2016. It offers an exciting research 
and teaching environment with wide scope and rich expertise within the 
Department as well as diversified interdisciplinary opportunities within 
the University. A recent highlight from the department is the incoming 
launch of the first NASA Earth-Venture Mission, CYGNSS (Cyclone Global 
Navigation Satellite System), which is led by our faculty member and 
aims to improve extreme weather prediction. Research conducted within 
the Department covers radiation and climate, remote sensing, atmospheric 
dynamics and numerical methods, carbon cycle science, atmospheric 
chemistry and air pollution, aerosol-cloud-climate interactions, as well 
as mesosphere-to-ionosphere coupling, heliophysics, space weather, and 
planetary science. Strong expertise exists in instrumentation, numerical 
simulations, as well as theoretical studies. In addition to the regular 
PhD program, the department also offers Master of Engineering programs 
in Applied Climate and Space Engineering.

The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor has 19 schools and colleges in 
total. CLaSP faculty have ongoing collaborations with researchers and 
faculty in many other nationally top-ranked programs within the 
University, including other engineering departments, the School of 
Natural Resources and the Environment, Earth and Environmental Sciences, 
the School of Public Health, School of Information, and the Ross School 
of Business.

The College is especially interested in qualified candidates who can 
contribute, through their research, teaching, and service, to the 
diversity and excellence of the academic community. Women, minorities, 
individuals with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply. The 
University is also responsive to the needs of dual career couples. The 
University is a non-discriminatory, affirmative action Employer.
