Job Opportunities at the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center
Two State-Supported, Tenure-Track Research Faculty Positions at the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center, University at Albany, SUNY
As part of a multi-year “Climate, Environment, and Energy” initiative, the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC) of the University at Albany, State University of New York, seeks to hire two tenure-track Research Faculty (rank open), effective Fall 2014. These New York State supported college-year appointments allow for supplementary summer salary from external research funding. We currently seek to fill two positions, with an emphasis on the area of Cloud-Climate Interactions. We are particularly interested in applicants with research expertise that includes, but is not limited to, Cloud-Resolving Modeling or Field Observations. Available facilities include ASRC's Whiteface Mountain Observatory near Lake Placid, NY, home to more than 50 years of cloud, chemistry, and climate research (http://asrc.albany.edu/observatories/whiteface/whiteface.html). This unique facility is available to all ASRC scientists and includes measurement sites at the summit of the mountain and a fully equipped laboratory at its base station.
Outstanding candidates from other areas of Atmospheric Science will also be considered and are encouraged to apply.
The successful candidates will be expected to strengthen ASRC and the university through (i) maintaining a strong externally funded research program; (ii) working with colleagues at ASRC and throughout the university on mutually beneficial research programs; (iii) recruiting and mentoring graduate students; and (v) participating as necessary in service to the Center and the University. While not a requirement, research faculty at ASRC have the option of making arrangements to teach in the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences or other university departments.
