The Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (AOS) invites applications for an assistant professor (tenure-track) position beginning August 2018. The department seeks energetic and creative individuals to develop vigorous research and teaching programs focused on the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans. Applications are encouraged from scientists representing the full spectrum of the atmospheric and oceanic sciences, especially those having expertise in one or more of the following areas (in alphabetical order): climate science; cloud and aerosol microphysics; data and observational science including data assimilation and instrumentation; oceanography; synoptic, mesoscale, and tropical meteorology. We especially encourage applications from individuals whose research complements the traditional strengths of our department (atmosphere and ocean dynamics, climate/Earth system science, and satellite meteorology).
The department continues to sustain and enhance its historical strength in the areas of climate, remote sensing, and weather systems. Professors in the AOS Department have excellent opportunities to engage in synergistic collaborations with scientists in the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC), Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS), the Center for Climate Research (CCR) and the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE). Additional information about the department and its partners can be found at https://aos.wisc.edu.
