Tenure-Track Position in Atmospheric Science, Position #0728

The Department of Atmospheric Science at the University of Wyoming invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position, with focused expertise on the modeling of cloud processes or atmosphere-land interaction processes.  The successful candidate will collaborate with observational and modeling faculty and staff to improve the understanding and representation of physical processes in climate models in at least one of the targeted areas: cloud physics and dynamics, cloud-aerosol-precipitation interactions, or atmosphere-land interactions. Demonstrated experience and scientific productivity with high-performance computing is required. The search committee will begin reviewing applications on 15 September 2014 and will continue until the position is filled.  More information about this position, the University, the City of Laramie and its surroundings can be found at http://www.atmos.uwyo.edu/info/FacultyPosition/

Faculty Highlights

Professor Snider's areas of expertise are cloud chemistry and aerosol physics. Both endeavors have yielded results essential for understanding the response of clouds, and the atmosphere in general, to changing levels of air pollution.
Professor Zhien Wang's work centers on understanding cloud processes using remote sensing tools such as lidar and radar. He was awarded NSF five year Faculty Early Career Development grant (CAREER), NSF's most prestigious honor for young faculty members who are 'most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century.'
Professor Geerts' work addresses the mesoscale dynamics of precipitating systems, boundary-layer circulations over flat and complex terrain, cloud dynamics, and cloud precipitation radars. The main tools have been the Wyoming
