Atmospheric Science Tenure Track Faculty Position and Director of the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere

Colorado State University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the Department of Atmospheric Science. This hire will also serve as director of the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA). The faculty appointment will be made at the rank of associate professor or professor. We solicit candidates in CIRA’s core focus area of merging satellite observations and models. This is interpreted as expertise in satellite remote sensing, regional and global model development, or data assimilation, with emphasis on individuals working at the interfaces of these areas.

Applications should be received by Jan. 20 to ensure full consideration. The search will remain open until the position is filled.

Candidates’ application materials, including letters of recommendation, will only be made available for review by the broader faculty of the Department of Atmospheric Science if the applicant reaches the semifinalist stage. Full details of the position can be found here. Applicants should submit a cover letter, one to two page statements on their vision for CIRA leadership and on research and teaching interests (uploaded to the special required documentation slot), a statement on your commitment to diversity and inclusion (uploaded to the other slot), a curriculum vitae, and the names of four references (who will not be contacted without prior notification of the candidate). Applications must be submitted online here.
