Job description

The Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC) of the University at Albany, State University of New York, seeks to hire a tenure-track Professor of Empire Innovation (rank open with a preference for mid-career and senior scientists), effective Fall 2021. This New York State supported college-year appointment allows for supplementary summer salary from external research funding. We currently seek to fill this position, with an emphasis in the areas of High Resolution Modeling and/or Measurements of the Lower Atmosphere. Priority will be given to candidates with experience in air quality and its connection to health, or planetary boundary layer dynamics, or both. The ideal candidate will have expertise in meteorological as well as air quality and photochemical measurements and/or modeling, be interested in urban environments and land-sea interaction, have a firm understanding of boundary-layer meteorology, and particularly for modelers have fluency in modern computational methods including data assimilation approaches. ASRC has a tradition of innovation in research, joy in discovery, and enthusiasm for working with colleagues in different disciplines. ASRC also values collaboration with researchers from diverse backgrounds who bring fresh perspectives. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue and secure funding to support a robust research program, mentor graduate students and teach one class per year in a University at Albany academic department (likely the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences) publish in relevant academic fields, and lead efforts that support the planned continuing investment in this area of UAlbany strength and focus. Priority will be given to candidates willing to engage in cross-disciplinary collaboration, especially with the University's Public Health program in environmental epidemiology and community health management (e.g., modeling of particulate matter and reactive gases). Outstanding candidates from other areas of Atmospheric Science will also be considered and are encouraged to apply.

The successful candidate will be expected to strengthen ASRC and the university through serving the broader missions of the Center and the University to educate and inform, promote sustainable economic growth and broaden community engagement.
