Assistant Professor in Atmospheric Physics


The successful candidate will be working at the Physics Department and is expected to develop scientific
research activities relevant to atmospheric physics/science, interact with researchers and students at the Physics
Department, advise graduate and undergraduate students on research projects, publish research results in peer-
reviewed conferences and journals, seek external research funding, and contribute to the education, outreach,
and workforce-development activities in atmospheric science and meteorology. The selected candidate is also
expected to teach undergraduate general physics courses, as well as atmospheric science courses at the graduate and
undergraduate levels. He/she should also contribute to strengthening our Curricular Sequence in Atmospheric
Science and Meteorology, participate in the ongoing improvement and assessment activities of our academic
programs, participate in faculty committees, participate in outreach activities, and support general academic
service activities of the Department.



Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, physics of the atmosphere, or a closely related field by date
of hire. Evidence of a strong physics background and ability to teach calculus-based introductory physics courses
is required. Having relevant post-doctoral experience is highly desirable.

Applicants must specialize in a field related to the atmospheric sciences and demonstrate a strong background in
physics. Some areas of interest include atmospheric microphysics, atmospheric radiative processes,
computational approaches to synoptic, mesoscale, and extreme meteorological phenomena, climatology and
climate physics, remote sensing techniques and instrumentation, and tropical meteorology. If the applicant’s
native language is not Spanish, they must be able to initially communicate and teach fluently in English and, by
the end of the 5-year tenure evaluation period, be able to communicate effectively in Spanish.

To Apply please email the following documents to Dr. Héctor Méndez – :
