Dear Colleagues,

The Department of Geosciences at Texas Tech University (TTU) invites applications for a tenure-track position in Atmospheric Science to begin in Fall 2009. The position will be filled at the Assistant Professor level; a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science is required at the time of appointment. The successful candidate will possess research and teaching interests in the areas of numerical weather prediction, and will establish an innovative, externally funded academic research program. Expertise in mesoscale or storm-scale modeling and/or data assimilation are also preferred, but not required. The candidate will be expected to teach graduate courses in their specialty, direct M.S. and Ph.D. student research, and assist with undergraduate courses in Atmospheric Science. The successful candidate will be encouraged to engage in various activities which could be regarded as service to his/her profession, department, and TTU.

The Department of Geosciences (www.gesc.ttu.edu<http://www.gesc.ttu.edu>) has 19 tenured and tenure-track faculty members in all disciplines of earth and atmospheric sciences. There are opportunities for multi-disciplinary collaboration within and/or with other departments.

The Atmospheric Science Group web site (www.atmo.ttu.edu<http://www.atmo.ttu.edu>) describes the laboratories, facilities and current research programs in the Department. TTU has assembled a unique array of observational capabilities (e.g., Ka-band mobile Doppler radars, StickNet, and mobile mesonet facilities, the 54-station West Texas Mesonet, and surface and tower-based instrument suites based at the Wind Science and Engineering Research Center). Texas Tech University's High Performance Computing Center (www.hpcc.ttu.edu<http://www.hpcc.ttu.edu>) provides computational resources to TTU researchers. Its most recent Linux cluster (named Grendel) is currently ranked 289 in the top 500 supercomputers. Given the availability of ample computational and state-of-the-art observational resources, a new faculty member in the area of numerical weather prediction would be well positioned to make an immediate contribution to the research and operational community.

Applicants must first visit the TTU employment website at http://jobs.texastech.edu. Once there, go to "Search Postings", search for requisition number 2010 TLF 022, and provide the required information. Afterwards, applicants must submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching and research interests, names and contact information (including e-mail address) of at least three professional references. These documents can either be uploaded to the employment website or be mailed to: Chair, Numerical Weather Prediction Search Committee, Atmospheric Science Group, Texas Tech University, Box 42101, Lubbock, TX 79409-2101. Email questions regarding the position are received at nwpsearch at ttu.edu<mailto:nwpsearch at ttu.edu>.

Review of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Texas Tech University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer, committed to excellence through diversity. Texas Tech welcomes applications from minorities, women, veterans and persons with disabilities.
