The Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the

Assistant Professor, tenure track position.

The MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and
Planetary Sciences includes a vibrant and inter-disciplinary group in
climate science that we seek to expand. We are especially interested
in physical oceanography, atmospheric chemistry, and atmospheric
dynamics, but we encourage applications from outstanding candidates in
all sub-disciplines of climate science. We seek candidates who use any
approach or combination of approaches, including observation, theory,
modeling, and experimentation. Candidates should have the potential
for innovation and leadership in research and a commitment to teaching
at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Requirements: Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in earth sciences or
related field by the start of employment. Our intent is to hire at the
assistant professor level, but more senior appointments may also be
considered. Applications from women and underrepresented minorities
are strongly encouraged. A complete application must include a cover
letter, curriculum vitae, one- to two-page descriptions each of
research and teaching plans, and three letters of recommendations.
