Mathias Vuille
Dear colleagues,

Please note that the deadline for applications has been extended until
Nov.30 2011.

Assistant Professor Position available in the Department of Atmospheric and
Environmental Sciences University at Albany, SUNY

The Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences (DAES) of the
University at Albany, State University of New York, seeks applicants at the
Assistant (tenure track) Professor level for one position, effective Fall
2012. This is a 10-month appointment that allows supplementary summer salary
from research funding. Candidates with experience in the following two
possible areas are encouraged to apply: Ocean - Atmosphere Interactions or
Climate-Cryosphere Dynamics and Feedbacks. The ideal candidate for the first
area would have a solid grounding in the theory of physical interactions and
feedbacks between ocean and atmosphere on climate-relevant timescales
(interannual or longer). The ideal candidate for the second area would have
expertise in any aspect related to the cryosphere and its interactions with
climate, using models, observations, remote sensing and/or theory. However,
candidates whose research specialization complements existing research
programs in the department are also encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will be expected to carry out the responsibilities
of a full-time faculty member in the DAES which includes (i) teaching at the
undergraduate and/or graduate level, (ii) maintaining a strong externally
funded research program, (iii) mentoring and supervision of graduate
students and (iv) participating, as necessary, in all service and
programmatic activities of the Department, College and University.

Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. by Sept 2012 in atmospheric,
environmental or earth science, or a closely related field from a college or
university accredited by the U.S. Department of Education or an
internationally recognized accrediting organization. Candidates are expected
to provide evidence that they can teach with distinction at the
undergraduate and graduate level and be an effective mentor of graduate
students. Applicants must also address in their applications their ability
to work with and instruct culturally diverse populations. They must
demonstrate ability to build and maintain a strong, externally funded
research program.

Professional Rank and Salary Range: Commensurate with experience

Starting Date: September 2012

Interested applicants should apply online via
and submit a detailed curriculum vitae (including publication reprints), a
statement of research and teaching goals and the names and contact
information of three references.
