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 2023. The default appointment is 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. Advances in climate science prediction will require transformative developments in and between mathematics, data science, computer science, physics, engineering and geoscience. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
New York University is situated in Greenwich Village, one of the most vibrant and family-friendly neighborhoods in the City of New York.
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.
A Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science, Oceanic Science, Mathematics (or a related field) is required.
Application Instructions Please include 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 at least three references who could provide a letter on your behalf upon request.
Applications should be submitted through Interfolio.com via this link: apply.interfolio.com/116254. Review of applications will begin December 1, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
