The University of Washington (UW) School of Oceanography invites applications for a full-time, 9-month (100% FTE), tenure-track Assistant Professor faculty position in dynamical physical oceanography to begin as soon as autumn quarter 2018.
It is anticipated that the successful candidate’s areas of research may include, but will not necessarily be limited to, the effect of mixing on large-scale circulations, interactions across scales, and the role of ocean circulation in decadal climate prediction or paleoclimate. The method of study can include modeling, theoretical, or observational approaches. It is expected that the successful candidate will teach geophysical fluid dynamics, among other courses at graduate and undergraduate levels.
The School of Oceanography resides in the College of the Environment, which fosters collaborations among the faculty, staff, and students engaged in the study of environmental sciences, engineering, and the human dimensions of environmental challenges. This position will offer opportunities for interaction with researchers in a wide range of disciplines, including oceanography, atmospheric science, biology, geology, hydrology, economics, and environmental policy. All UW faculty members engage in teaching, research, and service. This position will collaborate with faculty and mentor students from a wide range of disciplines, cultures, economic means, and academic backgrounds. A Ph.D. or foreign equivalent in oceanography or a related field and a record of oceanography-related research are required.
