Multiple Open-rank Faculty Positions in Climate Science

The School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (eas.gatech.edu) at the Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Climate Science. Multiple applicants will be considered at all ranks. This search is part of a cluster hire in Climate Science and Climate Change Impacts. We are seeking candidates interested in understanding the mechanisms of the climate system through a variety of approaches, including theory development, observational data synthesis and diagnosis, remote sensing, paleoclimate reconstructions, regional and global climate modeling, and machine learning / artificial intelligence. Areas of particular interest to the department include oceanic and climate dynamics, clouds and cloud-aerosol interactions, carbon and methane cycles, extreme weather and air-quality events, land-atmosphere interactions, hydroclimate, the cryosphere and sea level change. We anticipate several climate-related hires in coming years, and are seeking to strengthen the role of the school as a leader in both the fundamental science of climate and in addressing climate change with scientifically driven solutions. Candidates are expected to demonstrate an exceptional commitment to the teaching and mentoring of students.

Georgia Institute of Technology is located in Atlanta, Georgia and is consistently a top ranked educational and research institution. The School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences is highly interdisciplinary and covers broadly all fields or Earth and space science. EAS hosts a distinct interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Ocean Science and Engineering in collaboration with the School of Biological Sciences and Environmental Engineering, and contributes to the Ph.D. program in Quantitative Biosciences.

Applicants should submit a CV, a statement of research interest, a teaching statement, a statement that summarizes your past or potential contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion in research, teaching, or mentoring, as well as a list of three references who could provide a letter on your behalf upon request. Application materials should be submitted as PDF files via the Georgia Tech online portal at: Georgia Tech Careers

Requests for information and pre-application enquiries from senior candidates should be directed to Dr. Annalisa Bracco, Search Committee Chair, at abracco@gatech.edu. Applications will be considered beginning October 1, 2022, but the search will continue until the positions are filled. An earned doctorate is required by the start of the appointment, and a background check must be completed prior to employment.
