Job Details

The Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Climate Systems. We welcome applications from geoscientists who employ field, analytical, observational, modeling, or a combination of these approaches to understand how components of Earth’s climate system work, interact and evolve. Research could focus on processes or records, from the recent to the deeper geological past.

The successful candidate is expected to establish a vibrant, externally funded research program, mentor graduate and undergraduate students in research, and teach both introductory and upper- level courses. They will be committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in the department and university, and willing to engage in academic service at various levels. 

CWRU seeks to recruit and retain a diverse faculty to enhance the excellence of the university, and to offer students richly varied disciplines, perspectives and ways of learning. Further information about departmental research can be obtained from and the individual websites of the faculty members. Additional colleagues and resources for interdisciplinary research reside across the university, as well as at NASA Glenn Research Center, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Holden Forests & Gardens, and other nearby institutions. 

The position requires a PhD degree by August 1, 2023, and a record of research, publication and teaching commensurate with time since PhD. Research that complements existing departmental and university strengths is considered an asset.

To apply, submit 1) a 2-3 page cover letter including an explanation of how your research and teaching will contribute to the future success of the department and university; 2) a curriculum vitae; 3) names and contact information for three letters of recommendation; and 4) a 1-2 page statement that explains how diversity, equity and inclusion inform your research, teaching and service plans (see the application webpage below for more details). Applications should be submitted online at

Review of applications will begin on 12/1/2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
