Faculty Position in Climate and Mathematics – NYU

The Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science (CAOS), a unit of the Department of Mathematics within the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, seeks candidates for an open-rank faculty position, anticipated to begin in September 2022. The appointment is anticipated to be made at the Assistant Professor level, but higher rank appointments may be possible for exceptional candidates.  

This search is part of a cluster hire in Predicting Climate Change and its Impacts: From the Global to Urban Scale that includes the departments of Mathematics and Computer Science in the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Civil and Urban Engineering in the Tandon School of Engineering, and the Center for Data Science. More information about this cluster, and NYU’s broader Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative, can be found here, and here. Additional faculty positions will be advertised as part of the cluster, with the intention of creating a diverse, inter-disciplinary cohort to devise cutting edge research and curricular development. Inquiries about this position and its role within the cluster should be addressed to climateclusterhire@nyu.edu

The CAOS group focuses on the intersection between applied mathematics and climate science to solve some of the most challenging problems in atmosphere-ocean science. CAOS hosts a distinct interdisciplinary Ph.D. program within the Courant Institute. The Courant Institute’s Mathematics Department is a world-renowned center for applied mathematics, scientific computing, PDEs, analysis, probability, and other fields. Courant is also the home of NYU’s Department of Computer Science, which is a leader in scientific computing and machine learning, among other fields. 

The ideal candidate should have a research portfolio in the broad areas of quantitative atmosphere and ocean science, including but not limited to regional or global climate modeling, multi-scale dynamics, high-performance simulation, dynamical system modeling (data-driven and model/theory-based), or climate variability and change.

The successful candidate will be expected to collaborate and connect with other scientists; build a vibrant, externally funded, and internationally recognized research program that addresses scientific questions of fundamental significance in climate science; and provide high-quality teaching, mentor students, and advance equity, and inclusion.

New York University is situated in Greenwich Village, one of the most vibrant and family-friendly neighborhoods in the City of New York.

Qualifications

A Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science, Oceanic Science, Mathematics, (or a related field is required).
