The Department of Meteorology at Stockholm University seeks to appoint an Assistant Professor in atmospheric science, with focus on dynamical processes. This is a tenure-track position, with a merit review after no more than six years leading to possible promotion to tenured Associate Professor. Candidates who have received their PhD degree less than five years before the closing date will receive highest priority in the selection process.
The scope of the search is broad, open to candidates with expertise in atmospheric dynamical processes at any space-time scale relevant to weather or climate, using theoretical, numerical, observational or statistical approaches. Applications should include a detailed discussion of the candidate’s research achievements as well as a forward-looking statement of their research plans, in addition to a description of teaching experience and pedagogic reflection.
The successful candidate will be expected to develop an active, externally-funded research program involving supervision of graduate students and/or postdocs, and to engage in some teaching.
The Department of Meteorology at Stockholm University (MISU) conducts research and education spanning the atmosphere, ocean and physical climate sciences. We offer educational programmes at the Bachelor's, Master's and PhD levels. Our research addresses fundamental questions concerning the dynamics, physics, chemistry and biogeochemistry of the atmosphere and ocean relevant for weather and climate. We study questions originating from the deep ocean to the upper atmosphere and from the tropics to the poles. In this effort, we use and develop theory, statistical methods, and numerical models in close interplay with observations. We also develop and lead observational research using satellite and surface-based measurements, including icebreaker expeditions to the Arctic.
The department has around 60 employees and is embedded in a larger research environment including the Bolin Centre for Climate Research https://www.su.se/bolin-centre-for-climate-research/, the Baltic Sea Centre https://www.su.se/stockholm-university-baltic-sea-centre/, and the Swedish e-Science Research Centre https://e-science.se/. The department is highly international, with over half our employees coming from outside Sweden and both Swedish and English used as working languages. We welcome and value diversity in our working environment.
