The Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) at Cornell
University invites applications for an Assistant Professor in the subject
area of extreme weather during climate change. The successful candidate
will develop a high quality research program investigating multi-scale
processes linking climate to extreme weather phenomena such as
thunderstorms, tornadoes, tropical and extra-tropical cyclones, flooding,
and droughts, and their impacts. The incumbent could take an Earth
system approach to the subject, emphasizing the interactions of
atmospheric, oceanic and land-surface processes in the climate system,
including future climate change scenarios. The incumbent will also be a
committed educator, enthusiastically teaching undergraduate and
graduate courses, advising undergraduate and graduate students, and
supervising students at all levels in research. The ideal candidate will be
able to interact in teaching and research with colleagues having similar
interests at Cornell University, particularly in the Colleges of Engineering
and of Agriculture and Life Sciences, in which the Department of EAS is
jointly located. The responsibilities of the position will be 50% research
and 50% teaching.
A Ph.D. in atmospheric science, Earth system science, or a related
science or engineering discipline is required. Please submit applications to
extreme-weather-search at cornell.edu as a single pdf (15 mb maximum)
