Faculty position available at Scripps Institution of Oceanography

Helen Amanda Fricker
Dear Colleagues,

There are currently open faculty searches here at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.  One of these open positions is the prestigious Revelle Chair, which I have advertised previously to Cryolist, but it was never filled.  This is an Associate or Full Professor position.  Even though it is not explicitly stated, the search committee welcomes applications from the cryospheric sciences, especially those who do interdisciplinary work e.g. ice-ocean interaction or ice-atmosphere interaction.  If you have any interest in this position at all, and have questions about SIO, San Diego, working on glaciology projects from the beach, etc, etc, please feel free to email me.


Best wishes - Helen

FACULTY POSITION

SCRIPPS INSTITUTION OF OCEANOGRAPHY
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO
 
Revelle Chair (RP#10-201):  We invite applications at the Associate or Full Professor level for the newly created Revelle Chair in Environmental Science. This faculty position builds on the legacy of Roger Revelle as a leader in the study of global environmental change, and will be filled by an outstanding senior scientist in fields related to climate dynamics and predictability. We seek an interdisciplinary scientist and educator with demonstrated ability to mentor graduate students and junior colleagues and to provide leadership in climate-related issues within the Scripps Institution and UCSD.  Applicants are encouraged from all areas of climate studies, particularly those whose research focuses on large-scale coupled interactions of the atmosphere, ocean and land surface in order to understand and predict global and regional climate variability on interannual to decadal time scales and longer.  Specific areas of interest include dynamical meteorology and oceanography, the role of the ocean and atmosphere in past and present climate and the physical and chemical basis of natural and anthropogenic climate change.

The Oceans and Atmosphere Section of Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) at the University of California in San Diego (http://scripps.ucsd.edu) is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.  In addition to having demonstrated the highest standards of scholarship and professional activity, the preferred candidates will have experience in the arena of equity and diversity such as leadership in teaching, mentoring, research or service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment.  SIO is a world renowned center of marine research with approximately 200 principal investigators leading research programs on all aspects of earth, ocean and atmospheric sciences.

Successful candidates will be expected to teach classes and supervise research at both the graduate and undergraduate level.  The positions require a PhD degree and a competitive record of publication, as well as evidence of the ability to conduct and fund an active research program consistent with the opportunity to have done so at this career level.

Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2010, and will continue until positions are filled. "All applications and related materials should be submitted electronically via Academic Personnel On-Line RECRUIT at:  https://apol-recruit.ucsd.edu/."   Applicants should send a letter including descriptions of their teaching experience, research interests, past experience and leadership in equity and diversity, a list of publications, immigration status, and the names of three potential referees, along with their complete institution address, email address, phone and fax numbers.

Questions about submission of applications may be addressed to Cristy Whitehead at 858-534-3205, ([hidden email]).  Salary will depend on the experience of the successful applicant and will be based on the UCSD pay scales.
