Tenure track position in Climate Based Physical Oceanography
Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES)
University of Colorado Boulder
The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES, www.cires.colorado.edu), an interdisciplinary research institute within the University of Colorado Boulder, seeks to appoint a junior, tenure-track faculty member specializing in physical oceanography as related to climate variability on seasonal, interannual, interdecadal or longer time scales.
The successful applicant will create a research program with productive collaborations within and outside CIRES, including the wider Boulder climate community, leading to novel insights about mechanisms that connect ocean processes with topics of interest to CIRES scientists, including regional process studies, air-sea interactions, wave dynamics, ocean circulation, or paleoclimate. Appropriate research tools for this position may include modeling, theory, and data analysis (e.g., from remote sensing sources). The successful candidate will have a tenure-track affiliation in a relevant academic department including, but not limited to, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Geography, Aerospace Engineering Sciences, or Geologic Sciences. The distribution of effort for this position will be 40% research, 40% teaching, and 20% service.
Minimum education requirements include a PhD in oceanography, physics, geology, or a related field. Applications must be submitted to www.jobsatcu.com, posting #F00798. Alternative formats of the job posting can be provided upon request for individuals with disabilities by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
