Two Tenure Track Positions

FAC001997: Assistant Professor - Climate Dynamics and Modeling

The position is within the Presidential Frontier Faculty program. The Presidential Frontier Faculty program is a university-wide integrated interdisciplinary hiring campaign that is overseen by central university leadership, and encompasses hiring a large cohort of convergence research faculty to work on health, energy, sustainability and security.

This position seeks a researcher who can bring a multidisciplinary and externally funded research program in the field of climate modeling and climate dynamics with an emphasis on the ecological and societal effects of changing climates. Areas of expertise may include but are not limited to: Earth system modeling, large-scale and/or regional climate dynamics, terrestrial-marine-atmospheric interactions, clouds in the climate system, climate change and precipitation, boundary layer dynamics, and/or attribution science.

Applications received by November 1, 2021, will receive the fullest consideration, but the search will continue until the position is filled. Any questions about this position should be addressed to the search committee chair, Dr. Yuxuan Wang (ywang246@central.uh.edu).
