Job description

Organization: DB-Applied Aviation Sciences Department

Primary Location: United States-Daytona Beach, FL

Job: Research and Academics

Education Level: PhD

The Applied Aviation Sciences Department of the College of Aviation at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) in Daytona Beach, FL invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor of Meteorology positions to teach introductory and higher-level undergraduate courses supporting our Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Meteorology degree program, as well as our Applied Meteorology and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) minors. The Daytona Beach ERAU B.S. Meteorology (MET) program is a traditional, calculus-based meteorology program meeting all American Meteorological Society (AMS) guidelines for a degree in meteorology and all OPM GS-1340 series requirements.  These are nine-month positions renewed annually with the possibility of summer teaching and/or research assignments. 

Both positions include a mix of teaching, research, and service obligations. The candidate must possess demonstrated, effective teaching skills at the undergraduate level, including the ability to relate theory to application through experiential learning. Basic teaching requirements are 12 undergraduate credit hours (four courses) per semester with the possibility of replacing some teaching credit hours with equivalent funded research. The candidate is expected to develop new course materials as well as teach previously developed courses.

Candidates are expected to pursue scholarly research activities with the possibility of workload reassignment for funded research, and to participate in individual and group research projects involving students.

Service duties may include: student advisement, curriculum evaluation and assessment, committee participation, and project leadership.

Qualifications and Detailed Position Description 

Position 1 – Geoscience and GIS

PhD in Meteorology, Atmospheric Science, Geoscience, Physical Geography, Climatology or closely related field is required. The position would include teaching assignments primarily in introductory and advanced Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Geoscience courses for meteorology majors and other departments as well as teaching university-wide service courses, which include a survey meteorology course, an applied climatology course, an aviation weather course, and potentially other non-calculus-based meteorology courses supporting the Applied Meteorology minor (e.g., Thunderstorms, Satellite and Radar Interpretation, Climate Change, Tropical Meteorology, etc.). Experience and certifications GIS is highly desired.  Experience in aviation meteorology for piloted or autonomous aircraft is desired.  

Position 2 – Physical Meteorology and GIS

PhD in Meteorology or Atmospheric Science is required. The position would include teaching assignments primarily in upper-level undergraduate Physical Meteorology courses (precipitation processes, radiation, remote sensing) and introductory Geographical Information Systems (GIS) for meteorology majors and other departments as well as teaching university-wide service courses, which include: a survey meteorology course, an applied climatology course, an aviation weather course, and potentially other non-calculus-based meteorology courses supporting the Applied Meteorology minor (e.g., Thunderstorms, Satellite and Radar Interpretation, Climate Change, Tropical Meteorology, etc.). 

The positions will begin in August 2020. Applications will be reviewed immediately and will continue until the positions are filled. Interested individuals should submit a letter of application clearly showing that the applicant meets the minimum qualifications, a current curriculum vitae, and a statement of teaching and research interests. Please include three professional references with contact information and unofficial transcripts from accredited institutions.  Official transcripts will be required at a later date should the applicant be selected.
