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, at
https://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

*Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to
