The Hampton University (HU) Department of Atmospheric and Planetary
Sciences (APS) invites nominations and applications for two tenure-track
faculty positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor beginning
January 2023.

Founded in 1868, Hampton University is a leading historically black
university (HBCU) located on the Virginia Peninsula in the City of
Hampton.  It is a privately endowed, co-educational, nonsectarian
institution.  HU established the Center for Atmospheric Science (CAS) in
1996, which led to creation of the Department of Atmospheric and Planetary
Sciences in 2007.  APS offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in the fields of
Atmospheric Science and Planetary Science. This program has established a
reputation of excellence in education, outreach and research, with
particular emphasis on satellite applications for atmospheric studies.

*Duties and Responsibilities*

The successful candidates will continue and advance the groundbreaking work
of CAS and APS.  This work includes building a portfolio of externally
funded, high-profile research in the field of atmospheric science and
recruiting, supporting, and advising masters and doctoral students.  The
successful candidates will also teach courses at the graduate and
undergraduate levels. Objectives of the APS department include continuation
of research excellence at HU in atmospheric science, expanded capacity for
research, and growth in enrollment in the graduate program.


1.    Atmospheric research, with demonstrated achievements as a satellite
science team member or in the use of satellite data to advance atmospheric
science.  Possible areas of specialization include atmospheric composition,
chemistry and dynamics studies, using remote sensing and/or modeling.
Capability to develop new satellite instruments, missions, and/or
measurement campaigns is preferred.

2.    Forecasting and modeling for dynamic meteorology, particularly
focused on cutting edge research in forecasting severe weather and coastal
phenomena, as well as wind energy applications.  The successful candidate
will serve as deputy director of the HU Severe Weather Research Center
(SWRC), and will lead the SWRC upon the retirement of its current director.

Salary will be commensurate with experience, qualifications, and
accomplishments in the field.

*How to Apply*

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the
positions are filled.  Applicants should submit a Hampton University
