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 research).

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 collaborations.
