Tenure Track Faculty Position in Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering at University of Michigan
The Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering (CLaSP) in
the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor
invites applications for a tenure track faculty position with expertise
in essential components of the stressed climate system who can bridge
and strengthen our existing research portfolio. Specific subdisciplines
of interest include meteorology and climate dynamics, polar science,
atmospheric chemistry and air quality, clouds and water cycle feedbacks,
and impacts of climate mitigation. The department welcomes expertise in
either experimental (satellite, airborne, or ground-based
instrumentation) or modeling (numerical weather prediction, climate
modeling, machine learning, big data applications) areas. Although the
position is open to all ranks, we especially seek candidates at the
Assistant Professor level. We look for candidates who are capable of
developing an internationally recognized research program, successfully
competing for external funding, mentoring doctoral students, and
participating in our educational programs at the graduate and
undergraduate levels. We welcome applications from candidates whose
research addresses cross-disciplinary areas that complement our existing
strengths in climate sciences and engineering and the development of
space instrumentation and missions.
Applications should include a cover letter, CV, research and teaching
statements, a statement describing any activities, contributions, or
plans related to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion, and a list
of four references with contact details. For full consideration,
applications compiled into a single PDF should be received before
December 15th, 2020. Applications should be addressed to
[hidden email]. Questions about the position or application
process can be directed to the search committee chair Chris Ruf
([hidden email]). The availability of this position is contingent upon
final University approval.
University of Michigan is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion.
CLaSP and the College of Engineering are especially interested in
exceptionally well qualified candidates who will contribute, through
their research, teaching, and service, to the department's goal of
eliminating systemic racism and sexism by embracing our culture of
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). Women, minorities, individuals
with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply. The University
is also responsive to the needs of dual-career couples. The University
is a non-discriminatory, affirmative action Employer.
