The University of Houston Department of Earth and Atmospheric
Sciences (EAS) invites applications for a tenure-track position in
Atmospheric Science at the assistant professor level.
This position request seeks a dynamic researcher and educator who
can establish an externally funded research program in the field of
Atmospheric Dynamics. This position is open to candidates whose
research interest may cover any spatial scale in the climate
system. Candidates with modeling and/or experimental background are
encouraged to apply.
Areas of expertise may include but are not limited to: regional
climate including boundary layer dynamics, extreme climate events
as well as attribution science, aerosol-climate interactions
including aerosol-precipitation interactions, cloud and
precipitation physics and chemistry in a changing climate, dynamics
associated with rain formation ranging from the local scale (e.g.
urban heat island effect) to the large scale (e.g. tropical storm
Candidates will teach undergraduate and graduate-level courses,
such as climate change, meteorology, climate dynamics and physics,
climate modeling, synoptic meteorology, cloud and precipitation
physics and chemistry, satellite meteorology, and additional
courses in the candidate's specialty.
The successful candidate is expected to build active collaborations
within and outside the university, to develop externally funded
research programs that are internationally recognized, to teach
graduate and undergraduate level courses that bridge theory and
practical applications in the atmospheric and geological sciences.
EAS has a vibrant research environment covering Earth & Energy
Resources, Earth & Planetary Dynamics, and Atmospheric &
Earth Surface Systems and offers a wide range of opportunity of
