Application Deadline: October 1, 2022

The Department of Environmental Studies in the Faculty of Arts and Science at New York University invites applications for tenure-track positions at the rank of Assistant Professor. These positions are open to scholars whose research specializes in all relevant dimensions of Earth and Environmental Science. We welcome candidates from a broad range of disciplines (e.g. Earth systems science, ecology, conservation biology, and other relevant fields). The appointments will begin September 1, 2023, pending administrative and budgetary approval. The successful applicants will be interdisciplinary scholars with a strong record of research and publishing, who are committed to educating both Environmental Studies undergraduate major and graduate students in the planned PhD graduate program and/or the existing MA in Animal Studies, both hosted by the department.


Postdoctoral Scholar – Atmospheric Sciences (Cloud-Aerosol Interaction) (2x)

Location: University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA
Application Deadline: October 14, 2022

The Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington is seeking two Postdoctoral Scholar positions focused on understanding aerosol-cloud interactions in mixed phase clouds. The position will focus on (a) extending a numerical model of aerosol processing in liquid clouds to include ice phase processes and studying the impact of cloud-aerosol interactions on mixed-phase clouds during marine cold air outbreaks; (b) conducting observational analyses with ground-based and airborne measurements to study factors controlling the development of precipitation in marine cold air outbreaks, including interactions between aerosols, clouds, and turbulence.


PhD Position (f/m/d, 50% TV L E13)

Location: University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany
Application Deadline: None specified

The University of Hohenheim seeks a PhD student to develop an advanced CO2 remote sensing system based on the Raman lidar technique. Furthermore, your task will be to assimilate CO2 and thermody- namic profiles in earth system models.

The instrument to be developed is based on the unique Atmospheric Raman Temperature and Humidity Sounder (ARTHUS, Lange et al. 2019). Your work will include the incorporation of the CO2 receiver channel, the optimization of its efficiency, and the performance of meas- urements with the characterization of their accuracy.


Assistant Professor – Radar and Mesoscale/Synoptic Meteorology

Location: Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL, USA
Application Deadline: None specified

The Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at the Florida State University (FSU) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the area of Radar and Mesoscale/Synoptic Meteorology. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in radar meteorology and will use radars to address fundamental research questions on the physics and/or dynamics of Mesoscale/Synoptic Meteorology and their interactions with larger and/or smaller scale phenomena.

The successful candidate is expected to develop and maintain a vigorous externally funded research program in their area of interest and to contribute to both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the department. This includes contributing to teaching undergraduate courses in synoptic and mesoscale meteorology as well as teaching/developing other undergraduate and graduate courses in the candidate’s area of research specialization.


Postdoctoral Research Staff Member – Climate Sensitivity & Impacts Group

Location: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Livermore, CA, USA
Application Deadline: None specified

LLNL has an opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher to work in the area of cloud feedbacks with the goal of reducing the uncertainty in model predictions of future climate. Research topics may include but are not limited to understanding the role of clouds in Earth’s energy imbalance, evaluating climate model representation of the processes governing cloud responses on a variety of timescales, and developing observational constraints on cloud feedbacks. This position is with LLNL’s PCMDI project (pcmdi.llnl.gov) and will sit in the Climate Sensitivity and Impacts Group in the Atmospheric, Earth, and Energy Division.
Note: This is a two-year Postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of extension to a maximum of three years.


Assistant Professors in Weather and Climate Science, Earth Observation, and Air Quality (9 Positions)

Location: Technical University Delft, Delft, The Netherlands
Application Deadline: None specified

Anthropogenic climate change is one of the major challenges mankind is facing. The department of Geoscience and Remote Sensing, within the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at TU Delft, wants to understand the interaction between human activities, the Earth system, and our living environment. They do this through the combination of observational data science and physical modelling.

Nine new positions
The department of Geoscience and Remote Sensing is now investing in new fields of research. They are looking for nine enthusiastic and collaborative colleagues in weather and climate science, air quality studies, earth science and earth observation and has openings in a diverse range of fields:

  • The role of cloud microphysics in climate and weather
  • The interaction between oceans and atmosphere: impact on weather and climate
  • The interaction between oceans and ice sheets: impact on sea level rise
  • Understanding extreme rainfall in a changing climate
  • Data science to assess climate impacts: digital twins
  • E-science for high resolution weather and climate modelling
  • Understanding air quality: a data driven approach
  • Satellite remote sensing of clouds and aerosols
  • Optical remote sensing of the natural and built environment

The department of Geoscience and Remote Sensing is offering tenure track positions for early career scientists as well as career paths for senior researchers, depending on experience.


Assistant Professor – Water Resource Economics

Location: Water Resouces Center, Pendleton, SC, USA
Application Deadline: will remain open until filled.
Formal review of applications will begin on September 1, 2022

The Department of Agricultural Sciences located within Clemson’s University’s College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Sciences (CAFLS), is seeking to fill a 12-month tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level with a specialization in Water Resource Economics. The appointment is a 75% Research and 25% Extension position stationed at the South Carolina Water Resources Center, four miles from Clemson’s main campus. The preferred candidate will have strong training in non-market water valuation techniques, agricultural consumptive use valuation techniques, and the economics of agricultural versus non-agricultural water use tradeoffs.

The successful candidate will develop a nationally recognized, innovative, and externally funded research program in water resource economics. The candidate will conduct research, advise graduate students, and provide leadership for agricultural economics and water resources policy outreach and education efforts to stakeholders. The candidate is expected to provide leadership in assessment of the effectiveness of agricultural and river basin water-use policies. Specifically, the candidate is expected to contribute to interdisciplinary research efforts designed to develop efficient economic water use policies to allocate water among competing uses. The desired major focus of the outreach education component is providing economic and policy recommendations to inform users on the value of alternative irrigation practices (technology and crops), and net benefit of alternative water allocations.
