Faculty Positions in Atmospheric Science
The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) at Stony Brook University invites applications for two tenure track positions in Atmospheric Science to begin as early as Fall 2014. We welcome applicants focusing on extreme weather and regional climate change. In particular, applicants should contribute towards improving the physical understanding of extreme weather (e.g., tropical cyclones, severe convection, flooding), novel ways to do regional climate downscaling for extreme weather, or the application of remote sensing to address these issues. Stony Brook has active research efforts to improve understanding and prediction of coastal storms, convective systems, storm surge, seasonal variability, and climate. Successful candidates are expected to develop an independent externally funded research program, to teach and direct research at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and participate in School and University service. All candidates must have a Ph.D. in a relevant field, and have demonstrated excellence in research and a strong commitment to teaching. The positions will be filled at the Assistant Professor level.
Successful candidates will join a SoMAS faculty internationally known for their leadership in research in the atmospheric sciences and all the major disciplines of oceanography. The school has more than 500 undergraduate and graduate students and about 50 faculty and 40 staff working together to better understand how our marine, terrestrial, and atmospheric environments function and are related to one another; providing numerous opportunities for collaborative and inter-disciplinary research. SoMAS has collaborations with the Atmospheric Sciences Division at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), located nearby, and also has extensive interactions with the New York City National Weather Service office located at BNL.
