The UNCW Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences announces a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Hurricane Science and Associated Hazards to begin August 2022. We seek a natural scientist focused on tropical weather systems and their environmental impacts in the context of climate change, such as extreme precipitation and flooding, storm surge, coastal erosion, landslides, or impacts on infrastructure in populated areas. To complement our coastal plain location, preference will be given to candidates with experience analyzing Atlantic hurricanes and an appreciation for hurricane impacts on coastal and island environments. The ideal candidate will have experience teaching courses in weather and climate, a successful research record with evidence of mentoring students, and demonstrated interests in public outreach and science communication. We welcome applications from candidates who can incorporate an inclusive environmental and social justice narrative in their research and outreach activities. A PhD in the Earth and Ocean Sciences or a closely related discipline is required by the time of appointment.
