/- Two Faculty Positions in Weather/Climate Extremes -/

The Department of Atmospheric Sciences within the School of Earth, 
Society, and Environment at the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign invites applications for two full-time 
tenure-track/tenured faculty positions in the areas of extreme weather 
events, climate change impacts, and/or risk analysis and assessment. One 
position is at the Associate or Full Professor level, while the other is 
at the Assistant Professor (tenure-track) level. These positions are 
both nine-month academic appointments with a target start date of August 
16, 2014.

We are particularly interested in applicants whose research and teaching 
strengths include, but are not limited to, studies of climate change and 
extreme weather events, such as catastrophic storms, heat waves, 
droughts, and other hazardous phenomena using remote sensing techniques, 
numerical modeling and/or data analysis, risks and impact assessment 
associated with hazardous events, and management and strategic planning 
for weather and climate-related extreme events. Candidates who 
specialize in inter-disciplinary research areas with applications to the 
energy, commodities, agricultural, insurance, transportation, and/or 
natural resources sectors are encouraged to apply. We encourage 
applicants with exceptional strengths in other related research areas.

Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in atmospheric, 
environmental or earth science, or a related field. The successful 
candidates will be expected to: (i) establish and maintain an externally 
funded and internationally recognized quality research program, (ii) 
participate in the department’s teaching mission by mentoring graduate 
and undergraduate students and developing a successful teaching program, 
and (iii) collaborate effectively with other faculty. For a tenured 
appointment at the Associate or Full Professor level, the applicant must 
also show demonstrated excellence in research, service, and teaching at 
either or both the graduate and undergraduate levels, commensurate with 
tenure guidelines at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The members of the Atmospheric Sciences department work in a broad range 
of research areas. Opportunities are available for collaborations with 
departments across the university, with linkages already existing with 
the Department of Geology and the Department of Geography and Geographic 
Information Science, both within the School of Earth, Society, and 
Environment, the School of Integrative Biology, the Department of 
Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, the Prairie Research 
Institute, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), 
the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Department of 
Civil and Environmental Engineering, and many others. More information 
about the department can be found at www.atmos.illinois.edu 
<http://www.atmos.illinois.edu/>, and about the School of Earth, Society 
and Environment at www.earth.illinois.edu <http://www.earth.illinois.edu/>.

A competitive salary, commensurate with position, qualifications and 
experience, and an excellent benefits package will be offered. To ensure 
full consideration, applications must be submitted online by December 
15, 2013. Create your U of I application(s) through jobs.illinois.edu 
<http://jobs.illinois.edu/> and upload your application materials which 
should include: cover letter, vita, list of publications, record of 
research funding, teaching record, description of research and teaching 
interests, and names and email addresses of at least 3 references. 
Please state in your cover letter if you are applying for a junior or 
senior level position. Applicants may be interviewed before the closing 
date; however, no hiring decision will be made until after that date.
