    Faculty Position in Atmospheric Sciences (Dynamics)

The Department of Earth System Science at Stanford University invites 
applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment in the area of 
Atmospheric Sciences. The primary focus of the search is in atmospheric 
dynamics, although candidates with interests in the broader atmospheric 
sciences are also encouraged to apply. We are searching for a creative 
and innovative scholar with a demonstrated research record who is also 
committed to high-quality undergraduate and graduate teaching, including 
a demonstrated ability or potential in teaching and mentoring a diverse 
student body (such as women, minorities, and others from 
underrepresented backgrounds). The level of the appointment is open, 
with a preference for candidates at the junior rank.

We seek an expert who studies the role of atmospheric dynamics in 
shaping climate system variability and change. Although we are open to a 
broad range of specific expertise and research topics, we are seeking to 
add expertise in understanding the fluid dynamics of the atmosphere 
within the context of the Earth System. Particular areas of emphasis 
could include the hydrological cycle, atmosphere-ocean and/or 
atmosphere-sea ice coupling, tropical meteorology, eddy-mean flow 
dynamics, stratospheric dynamics, the dynamics of extreme weather and 
climate events, and feedbacks between the atmospheric circulation and 
atmospheric constituents such as trace gases and aerosols.

A candidate's tools and methods may be theoretical, computational and/or 
observational, with potential to establish a vigorous research program, 
preferably grounded in geophysical fluid dynamics. In addition, because 
a wide range of scientific challenges offer compelling prospects for 
future breakthroughs, the successful applicant will also have 
demonstrated interests in interacting effectively with a broad range of 
colleagues, such as in the School of Earth, Energy and Environmental 
Sciences, the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, or outside 
institutions. The successful applicant is also expected to teach classes 
and mentor graduate students in the Department of Earth System Science, 
and to teach in the Earth Systems undergraduate program.

Please apply online with the following application materials: cover 
letter, curriculum vitae, a statement outlining research and teaching 
experience and interests, and the names and addresses of three or more 
referees, athttps://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/7555.

The search committee will request letters of recommendation for a subset 
of applicants following review of these materials. Review of 
applications will begin*October 1, 2016*. Applications will continue to 
be accepted until the position is filled.

Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to 
increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of and 
applications from women, members of minority groups, protected veterans 
and individuals with disabilities, as well as from others who would 
bring additional dimensions to the university's research, teaching and 
clinical missions.
