Two Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Extreme Weather and Regional 
Climate Change

The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS; 
http://www.somas.stonybrook.edu/) at Stony Brook University invites 
applications for two tenure track positions in Atmospheric Science to 
begin as early as Fall 2014. We welcome applicants focusing on extreme 
weather and regional climate change. In particular, applicants should 
contribute towards improving the physical understanding of extreme 
weather (e.g., tropical cyclones, severe convection, flooding), novel 
ways to do regional climate downscaling for extreme weather, or the 
application of remote sensing to address these issues. Stony Brook has 
active research efforts to improve understanding and prediction of 
coastal storms, convective systems, storm surge, seasonal variability, 
and climate. Successful candidates are expected to develop an 
independent externally funded research program, to teach and direct 
research at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and participate 
in School and University service. All candidates must have a Ph.D. in a 
relevant field, and have demonstrated excellence in research and a 
strong commitment to teaching. The positions will be filled at the 
Assistant Professor level.

Successful candidates will join a SoMAS faculty internationally known 
for their leadership in research in the atmospheric sciences and all the 
major disciplines of oceanography. The school has more than 500 
undergraduate and graduate students and about 50 faculty and 40 staff 
working together to better understand how our marine, terrestrial, and 
atmospheric environments function and are related to one another, 
providing numerous opportunities for collaborative and 
inter-disciplinary research. SoMAS has collaborations with the 
Atmospheric Sciences Division at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL; 
http://www.bnl.gov/envsci/), located nearby, and also has extensive 
interactions with the New York City National Weather Service office 
located at BNL (http://www.erh.noaa.gov/okx/tour/index.html) on extreme 
weather (http://dendrite.somas.stonybrook.edu/CSTAR/).

Candidates should apply through Campus Job Opportunities 
(http://www.stonybrook.edu/cjo/), reference #F-8297-13-11, and submit 
a Stony Brook University state faculty employment application (available 
from the position announcement at the aforementioned jobs site), CV, a 
letter of introduction that conveys the candidate's teaching philosophy 
and proposed research plans, and names and contact information of three 
references (electronic submission in one PDF document is strongly 
preferred). Questions may be directed to Brian Colle at 
brian.colle at stonybrook.edu <mailto:brian.colle at stonybrook.edu>.

Alternatively, the above-listed materials may be mailed to:
    Paulette Gerber, HR Assistant
    (ref: Faculty Positions in Atmospheric Science #F-8297-13-11)
    School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences
    145 Endeavour Hall
    Stony Brook University
    Stony Brook, NY 11794-5000.

Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2014 and will continue 
until the positions are filled.
